    After a full day of ups and downs, it appears that Apple has finally gotten their new MobileMe (Me.com) service online. The service was expected to launch around 2am Pacific Time on Thursday morning, but actually came online at around 4am PT.

    Since then, the service has been alternating between being online and offline amidst what appeared to be heavy traffic with slow load times. Regardless of the problem, the online service is now up and running. The $99/year service replaces the .Mac service and offers web-based email, addressbook, calendar, photos and storage. It also integrates with both Mac OS X and the iPhone to provide "push" services that allows all your devices to be synchronized.

    Based on an earlier iPhone review, there was some confusion about being able to mix both business (Exchange) and personal schedules and contacts. According to Gizmodo, as long as the personal side is handled by MobileMe, it should integrate cleanly with Exchange.

    I was able to log in. I am a former .Mac member. My inbox and other info was transferred and everything worked okay and it was very slow. I think the servers are overloaded. I look forward to enjoying more MobileMe! :)

    logging in

    I can't seem to log in. I just signed up for the free trial. Maybe it's online working for previous .Mac users?

    I have been trying for the past 20 minutes to get anything to sync and all is failling. Hell, I can't create anything on the web interface without it throwing an error.

    Its just not ready

    Push Email in Mail?

    This is probably a stupid question, but how do I set up my MobileMe email account to be Push in Mail? It is currently set up as IMAP, and I don't see an option to change the account type. Has anyone successfully set this up yet?

    I don't like the idea of requiring a credit card to sign up for a FREE trial. What the hell. Now how do they expect a 17 year old kid to have a credit card :confused:

    Damnit. I wanted to test it out.

    Some parts are still half-working; Mail online doesn't work that well yet, but calendars work great! Also the System Pref is half-working, half-not; sync works, but other parts are flaky. Here's to tomorrow morning!

    Working very slowly. Mail and Accounts won't load at all. Calendar not saving anything I put into it. We're not quite there yet...slowly but surely. From what I can tell this is going to be my central hub on the net(besides Facebook of course)

    Well, MobileME is slower than that right now....

    Can't yet upgrade a trial subscription to get aliases, but that'll come soon enough.
    Slow, but slick, and easily navigatable. Good job!
