Apple pulls MobileMe uploading from iPad 2

Obscured by the many iPad 2-related announcements yesterday, Apple failed to make any mention of MobileMe-based video or photo uploading during its media event. A quick scan of Apple’s iPad 2 mini-site shows that no references are made to sharing photos or videos via MobileMe, although the service is still mentioned by name in references to synchronization and location-based services. Recent reports have suggested that Apple is working on a revamp of its paid MobileMe service which would position it as a free online, cloud-based “locker” for content such as photos, videos, and music. In addition, the company recently discontinued its boxed MobileMe retail packages before pulling it from its computer configuration options and ultimately removing any method through which a user could pay for the service. References to a “Media Stream” service have been found inside recent beta versions of iOS 4.3, which might point to a replacement service for traditional MobileMe sharing options.

Great on one hand - desperate for a better service.

Pfft on the other, I paid full whack for a family pack renewal in January 2011…

Me too. I kept getting emails saying my service will be disabled, and then not accepting my CC when I tried to renew over the Internet.
I had to find an Apple Reseller and buy a Box from them!
