    We bought mobile me a month or so ago and are really quite happy. With everyone in the fam having 2-4 idevices each it's really clean at keeping everything synched up. Considering the amount of dough we spend on all these devices, a benji for MobileMe hardly seems like a ton.

    I know there are somewhat comparable alternatives, but I like what it provides and it's worth it to me.

    thanks for the amazon info. i'd rather pay less. I think it should be included though free of charge.

    You can already stream your entire music collection to your iPhone using Ben Baron's iSub app in the App store. You also need to install Subsonic server to your home pc and with some minor configuration you'll be rocking to your tunes in no time.

    Subsonic » Free Music Streamer

    No worry about 3G unrestrictor or My3G. Not needed! You do however need to register the Subsonic server API that will quit working after 30 days. It costs roughly $12US (smallest donation you make for it). Ben's iSub app costs $4.99 in App store. I'm a beta tester. He's improving it and fixing bugs all the time. iSub now caches the songs streamed, so you can play music again from internal storage off your phone for when network is not available.

    Just thought I would mention this perfectly legit music streamer available right now. Why pay Apple $99 or Amazon $45 when you can pay $17 ONCE and be done with it?

    4 iDevices? What 4 devices? I can assume an iPhone and iPad, but the iPhone negates the need for an iPod, so perhaps a nano or shuffle for excercise. Either way, I'm left with 3 at most. Explain!

    I still don't get it, why would we want cloud streaming? Wouldn't that keep us from using our content when signal is not available?? Wouldn't this man our content would have to buffer and stuff? Please someone explain why anyone would like this?

    i would pay the $99 if Apple let my iDisk reside on my time capsule. they should let "ME" provide the could to myself.... its dumb if i have to store my data twice. once at home and once on an Apple server.

    Same reason most companies do. It's called profit. Microsoft exchange also costs as well as most server based personnel email domains.

    Nope. $99 year fee.

    I would get it...if I didn't have to pay yearly.
    Not only that, in Apple's specifications it says that you must be on OS 3.1.3 or higher.
