Apple is sorry for being pants

MobileMe awful


The true and holy Apple religion has confessed that its MobileMe product has fallen short of the glory of Steve Jobs.

The incredible shrinking messiah has ordered his followers to post an apology over the MobileMe fiasco, which said that in the 14 days since it launched it's been a rocky road, and Steve knows the pain some people have been suffering. Apple claims it has been working flat out to repair the problems, which included a "mail outage."  It claimed that this outage only affected a single percent of its members.

This one per cent will now have limited Web access to those accounts so the affected members can use their browsers to read mail that has arrived since last Friday.  Any mail sent before that time will have softly and suddenly vanished away and will not be met with again. Apparently, 10 percent of the messages received between July 16 and July 18 were lost, which (given they were sent by only one per cent of the accounts) strikes us as a bit odd.

Since the system launched there have been more than 70 MobileMe-related bugs, which seems to indicate that Apple's famous perfection is slipping.
