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.

So after I installed Lion, one of my biggest issues was the vertical scrolling has been completely reversed. This came about because it makes sense on the iPad and iPhone and to some extent, a trackpad.

I know apple has never been a fan of scroll wheels on their mice, but I got to tell you I have alway found the scroll wheel on the mouse to be an essential part of the mouse interface and I am having a very hard time getting used to vertical scroll being the opposite of what it has been hammered into my brain for the past 15 years or so.

So the question is: How do I change it back to the way I am used to.

It’s a very simple fix, Just open up ‘System Preferences’ and goto the ‘Mouse’ panel and uncheck the option at the top labeled “Move Content in the direction of finger movement when scrolling or navigation.”

(You can also achieve this by unchecking the “Scroll direction: natural” in the Trackpad panel)


With the announcement of Apple’s new iCloud service, the current service known as MobileMe ,or dot Mac before that, will be started to be fazed out. Apple’s new and upcoming service will be free, at least for a while.

Apple posted the followin on their site today:

Effective June 6, 2011, if you had an active MobileMe account, your service has been automatically extended through June 30, 2012, at no additional charge. After this, the MobileMe service will no longer be available…

…Apple has announced a new service called iCloud which will be available this fall and free for iOS 5 and OS X Lion users. When you sign up for iCloud, you’ll be able to keep your or email address and move your MobileMe mail, contacts, calendars, and bookmarks to the new service.

The new iCloud service looks incredible from what we have seen today and we look forward to seeing in action.
