Apple adds 60 days to MobileMe extension

Apple has sent out an email to MobileMe members announcing a 60-day extension to their subscriptions, which will be added to previously announced 30-day extensions. The email reads: “We have already made many improvements to MobileMe, but we still have many more to make. To recognize our users’ patience, we are giving every MobileMe subscriber as of today a free 60 day extension. This is in addition to the one month extension most subscribers have already received. We are working very hard to make MobileMe a great service we can all be proud of. We know that MobileMe’s launch has not been our finest hour, and we truly appreciate your patience as we turn this around.” The extension applies to all MobileMe subscribers whose account was active as of midnight Pacific Time, August 19.

My free trial STILL says it’ll expire on Sep 14th (which is the end of my original trial, so it looks like I never received the 30 or 60 update.  I didn’t even get an email about the 30 day one.  I DID get the e-mail about the 60 day one this morning though, but like I say, still says expires on Sep 14th

I suspect the 60 day extention is for paying customers only.

From Apple’s site:

“What if I am currently in a free trial period?
If you were in your free trial period on August 19 at 0:00 Pacific Daylight Time, your free trial will be extended an additional 60 days.”

My free trail extended, which is awesome because I can probably then get a discount on the full service when I purchase a new Mac in the fall. Sometimes, things aren’t so bad.
