The End is Near (very near).

On June 30th, 2012 Apple will be permanently shutting down the server racks that house the old MobileMe services, which include iWeb, MobileMe Email and iCal services, and my personal favorite, iDisk. For a number of users this means finding alternatives to services that have been relied on for years; to help ease the pain we have compiled this list of potential fixes.


If you have a .Mac or .me email account and do not plan on migrating to iCloud DON’T WORRY. You can keep you email for free regardless of platform. You will simply need to manually enter in your IMAP or POP servers into your setup and your email will continue to work as if nothing every changed.

iCal and Addresses:

We suggest, if you can not upgrade to iCloud, Google has some great products that make it easy to manage and share calendars and addresses. Google allows you to import from a file and supports the same file formats that iCal and Address uses for exports. Its free and easily managed.

Photo Gallery

flickr offers a great service for sharing photos and iPhoto can sync directly to your flickr account. Plus Flickr has iOS apps for all of your mobile devices.


There is no easy way to say this, so I am just going to put it out there. If you use iWeb to house your website you’re gonna have to get a new hosting service. There are several hosting platforms that market to the Macintosh customer. We can’t suggest any one particular platform, but you canĀ Google to find some hosting solutions to meet your particular needs.


IDisk was one of the greatest services Apple has ever provided. It wasn’t that helpful to me in the beginning, but with the advent of iPhone and iPad along with my personal growing collection of computers, iDisk has become an integral part of my day to day operation. I personally haven’t found a suitable replacement, but here are a few things that might get you by. First is Evernote. Its a great service / app that allows you to keep a ton of information in a convenient way and allows you to access your stuff from anywhere on any platform or device. Second is more of a file system like service called DropBox. Dropbox is brilliant and free, but only for 2gb, which fill up fast. You can purchase more space for a price, but it will cost you more than MobileMe.

We can help

While we hope that this list was helpful to you. We also want to let you know that you don’t have to do it alone. You can contact us to set up a private session with a trained professional and you’ll be saying “MobileWho?” in no time.

Apple Is planning a new campus

Infinite loop may soon no longer be the main campus for Mac Maker, Apple Inc.

Steve Jobs personally went in front of the Cupertino city council to announce Apple’s plans to build a new campus to house their going employee population. The new campus is about 100 acres and will have just one main, four story, circular building to house 12,000 employees. The plans call for most parking to be underground and 80% of the land to be land scape.

You can watch the complete presentation below.
