Apple introduces Mobile Me, a cloud service with email, calendar, contacts as well as file management service that is similar to Microsoft’s Windows Live platform; think Hotmail (now Live Mail) + Live Folder (aka Sky Drive). On top of a web interface like most SaaS model out there, Apple also seems to embraces Microsoft’s Software + Service vision by having software (or client applications) running on Windows PC, Mac or IPhone that can connect to Mobile Me  services. For Windows PC, the default client used by Apple is Outlook which also based on the Office Business Applications (OBA) architecture.

Customers got to pay USD99 to USD149 per year based on the number of users and storage size and there is no free account like Live . Apple also known Mobile Me as Exchange for the rest of us, but from my perspective Microsoft has already got ‘Exchange for the rest of us’ via the Live platform.
