Apple apologises for MobileMe problems

July 16, 2008 1 comment

It’s always nice when companies have the decency to say sorry, especially when it’s your money involved. Apple has sent an email to mobileme subscribers apologising for the problems the service experienced in its first few days, and offering an extra 30 days of service for free. They also admitted the Mac and PC part of the Mobile me service shouldn’t be described as ‘push’ until it’s as fast as the cloud and iDevice part of the service. There’s a support article at the Apple site detailing who is eligible for the extension, which even covers those signed up to the 60 day trial. Icanhaz30daysforfree? Almost as good as cheezburger.

iPod touch 1.1.5 firmware released

Bit of a surprise this one. For those running an iPod who haven’t upgraded to version 2, Apple have made firmware 1.1.5 available. Initial reports are that no new features are added and this is a speed and stability update. Macrumors has a direct download link in their forum for anyone wanting and not seeing this yet.
