MobileMe 60 day trial – part 2

July 15, 2008 Leave a comment

Part 1 detailed the initial setup of a MobileMe 60 day trial, and the issues I encountered with logging into the web account. The update at the end of part 1 explained that syncing had become more consistent with contacts, calendar items and bookmarks syncing across my hackintosh, macbook and iTouch. The problem with speed delays has now been explained, with several sites detailing Apple support document TS1155, ‘MobileMe Push: About automatic syncing’. From the article:

Selecting Automatic in Mac OS X allows your computer to immediately sync and update when there are any changes on the MobileMe servers.  Those changes can come from your iPhone, iPod touch, the MobileMe website, or another computer.  Changes made on your computer will be synced to the MobileMe “cloud” once every 15 minutes (or every hour in Mac OS X 10.4.11).

MacUpdate Bundle: Get it all Today?

April 22, 2008 Leave a comment

This morning I received an email from MacUpdate about the currently running software promotion. Nothing unusual there, I bought the last bundle. The thing that got my attention is the email making no mention of the last three applications being locked until sales targets are reached. With lines like ‘Total Value: $474.76 (get it at MacUpdate for $64.99 today)’ it actually reads like all ten apps are available now. I checked the web site and the locks are still there, so why does the email not mention this? Here’s the email I received, make your own minds up.

MacUpdate has just launched our biggest time limited Mac software bundle ever. It includes Parallels and 9+ other top Mac apps. Get them for $64.99 (retail: $474.76) and save 86% on this milestone bundle.
