    From L.A. times article today discussing what a disaster Mobile Me is:

    I called Geoffrey Nunberg, a linguist who teaches at UC Berkeley's School of Information, for his view of Apple's decision. A MobileMe customer, he received the e-mailed apology from Apple this morning and was puzzled by it. He said the move was akin to an airline that suffers from delays vowing to stop saying that its flights are "on time" or a troubled bank saying it would stop calling its deposits "safe."

    "It's an odd kind of apology," he said. "You promised something. And it turns out you can't deliver it. But when you come up short, you apologize for the word."

    I'm not surprised. Apple makes wonderful products and usually gets things right, but they are a very arrogant company. As they grow and expand their product lines, I expect this will become more frequent (unfortunately). Hopefully they prove me wrong.

    When I read the email I found it pretty funny: I guess they won't call it push, until it really does become that.
