After a few days of growing pains, it appears that MobileMe is now online at Me.com. The service has been up and down over the past few days while under heavy load. While Apple had initially released a MobileMe updater for Mac OS X, they had temporarily pulled the updater.

Today, the MobileMe updater appears to have returned to Software Update as version 1.1:
The Mac OS X Update For MobileMe is recommended for users running Mac OS X Leopard 10.5.4 and includes general system fixes that enhance your Mac for MobileMe.
The web-based service replaces .Mac and offers web-based email, calendar, addressbook, online storage as well as "push" sync services.

We've opened a MobileMe forum to handle questions and discussion about this new Apple service.

the update is not appearing in my software updater.....
Try going into System Preferences and clicking on the .Mac icon and click on the tabs in there, this prompts a dialogue box to pop up with the information.

*goes to find the alert*

Here is the dialogue box that should pop up:

It's not in my software update either. I have a MBP. I can't believe Apple dropped the ball on this one. They are usually very good about product launches. This one went like crap.

Yes, that does work. It's not in my software update, but clicking on .Mac in prefs does work and eventually brings up the updater.

I was in Safari when a window popped up and said MobileMe was ready. Please run Software update.

I have installed it and had a play. It is running quite slow and push still doesnt seem to be working. Also MM calendar kept throwing up errors.

:confused:

Not in mine either. This rollout has been very poor. I think Apple is stretching themselves too far as they can't handle rolling out MobileMe & iPhone 3G at the same time.

I can't even get me.com up and running. It keeps showing that black spinner.

Keep this up and they lose a 5 year member in standing.

No excuse for this at all.

Yeah, I hate to say it, but... "Told you so!" Heh...

I had a feeling there was going to be chaos when they tried to release the iPhone 3G, iPhone Software 2.0, iTunes 7.7 and MobileMe all at the same time... Ugh.

Regardless, I digress... I'm having a weird problem that I haven't seen anyone else pointing out: MobileMe doesn't work for me in Safari (it opens up, but nothing at all is clickable), but it works perfectly fine in FireFox... I can open up each section, create emails, switch views in calendars, etc, etc... but I can't do any of that in Safari.

Talk about a weird problem... a website from Apple isn't rendering properly in Apple's browser. Ugh.

Me.com is working great today, a bit slow, though. Hopefully it'll speed up in the next few days.

Going to the .Mac preferences panel and getting that dialog to make Software Update show the update worked for me. Finally!

I kind of have MobileMe up and running, but it still shows 10GB in the pref pane account details, so I signed out and signed in again to see if it would adjust this, but now it thinks my Mac has never synced and has to re-register and go through the whole "first" sync rigmarole again:
tip: don't sign out!

I downloaded the manual 1.0 package yesterday and got the 1.1 over software update yesterday. What I'm still waiting for is for the stray .Mac references and icons in iPhoto etc to be replaced with MobileMe.

And don't forget the Appletv updater as well. Way too much, too soon.

Ok this method worked for me.

Going directly to software update did not work. Had to go through the .Mac icon ... strange way on Apple's part.

Me.com wasn't sluggish at all for me, and the push IS working.. atleast for me. Everything should be up and dandy soon.

I think you might be using the Safari 4 beta - it doesn't work. I've gone back to 3.1.1 and it works a treat.
