    Please note that Apple makes no promises regarding data integrity or availability, either. It's unwise to rely upon MobileMe.

    (My MM data is backed up elsewhere. If MM decides to lose or scramble my data, I can still restore/access them, although, perhaps, not as easily.)

    Mine was a tongue-in-cheek comment. While I use on-line services and web space like MobileMe and GoDaddy's webhosting, I don't rely on them for backups of any kind.

    absurd logic. How abut not using any of these, including MM?

    Yahoo is free with unlimited space, google is free, AOL is free.

    I didn't know Yahoo and Google offer webhosting (for free even), easy data syncing between multiple computers and iPhone, an on-line file storage like idisk.

    Now, google does have Picasa Web Albums that is similar to Photo Gallery and AOL does have X-Drive that is similar to iDisk. But for an all-in-one, you're not going to get it anywhere other than Apple at this time.

    I'd use MM for email if they would allow me to use my already existing personal domain (as I currently have setup with google).

    I must be very lucky for once. The email outage the other day was the first time I had problems with MM.
