In the transition to iCloud, which goes live next week, MobileMe is breaking down
Having trouble reading your e-mail? According to Apple's (AAPL) official system status page, 25% of MobileMe clients were unable to get their mail Friday morning. Untold others couldn't access their MobileMe applications or use Find My iPhone.
It's like an advertisement for Google's (GOOG) cloud services.
But it could be worse. A few hours earlier, according to MacRumors, MobileMe was offline for 75% of its users.
On the bright side, Apple notes that "All other MobileMe services are online and fully operational."
Whatever they might be.
UPDATE: My mail finally showed up shortly after 6 a.m.
