MobileMe changes point to tiered membership

New changes to Apple’s MobileMe account type labels suggest the service may be moving to a tiered membership scheme. Ars Technica reports that several MobileMe subscribers have reported seeing their accounts, which were previously listed as either “Individual” or “Family Pack,” now listed as “Full Member.” Previously, only “Trial,” “Individual,” and “Family Pack” were possible account types. The report notes that recent rumors have suggested Apple will move the service to a tiered pricing scheme, possibly offering some services for free to better compete with Google.

That would be nice—there are some MobileMe services I would be very interested in, like being able to remotely find my iPhone, but other services I could care less about.

With a nod to Beavis and Butthead:

I hope they make me a “full-fledged member”.

I purchased the family pack of MobileMe when it first came out. I could never get it to sync with outlook or anything. Calengoo and google contacts manages my calendars and contacts much better than MobileMe did, and Google services are free.
