Replace all your MobileMe services for free, and terminate your billing renewal because Apple shouldn’t be charging money for this…
As my renewal term is coming in the next week I’ve been thinking, researching and testing free alternatives to most of these services. I’ve finally decided to cancel my MobileMe account because, these days Apple doesn’t really need another hundred bucks from me every year. I suppose Apple should just make these services free for people who buy a Mac. That would at least be a worthwhile incentive to new customers.
- for your Mail, Calendars and Contacts
Set them up to sync in your iCal and Address Book preferences, supported since 10.6. Sign in with a Gmail, Google Apps, or any other Google account.
- to sync all your Bookmarks
This has the enormous added benefit of also supporting Firefox, Chrome, Safari and good ol’ MSIE. If you use multiple browsers this is for you.
- beats your iDisk
Just a better solution, hands down. Also has the advantages of working just as well on Windows and Linux. And there are even smartphone versions! Fewer gigabytes than iDisk, but you can pay for more space if you need it. Did I mention it actually works?
- Find my iPhone… for free!
Apple has already opened this up for every iPhone customer so, nuff said?
