MobileMe is gone.
iCloud went over it.
You can not get a new account at me.com anymore. All existing accounts have been extended until June 30, 2012, at no additional charge.

I watched Steve at WWDC 2011 keynote announce that MobileMe did not work and is no more.

It did not go well with me because I just renewed my annual subscription on May 12, just over three weeks ago. Immediately I logged in to my account at cancelled the service for a full refund. Information on Apple web site about account canceling and refunds said that refunds will be processed within 40 days. My refund was posted to my credit card account in only three days.

I had MobileMe or .mac as it used to be called on the beginning for several years. My thinking was that since I do some Mac related work it would look good to have an email in the form of myname@mac.com and later as myname@me.com.

Nobody even noticed my attention to detail. I still believe that it looks better if you have email address at the domain of your area of work.

If you own a domain name and have a working web site (“working” is imperative) then you list your “www”.your_domain_name.com on your business card. Your contact email address better be your_name@your_domain_name.com because I look at it first and judge your knowledge of basic business sense on that.

Ask yourself, how would it look to the customer if you work for AT&T and have email like bite_me@verizon.com ?
