When I left my job at Apple retail I didn’t remind them about my staff MobileMe account. I kept it silent in hopes that I could still use the “Find My iPhone” service just in case something bad happened. I’ve been lucky they’ve not shut me down in the last year.
This week Apple revealed “iCloud”, a free service that allows you to stream/sync music, photos and files from device to device, effectively replacing MobileMe. If you were one of those poor schleps who purchased a MobileMe account recently, Apple is offering a refund (Via Gizmodo).
I’m still living in fear that someone in the back office of the Apple Store does some serious past-employee account wiping and cut me off before. But that’s me living dangerously.
