MobileMe, the cloud product that was a predecessor to iCloud, is officially dead. Apple’s mobileme.com now redirects you to iCloud.com

MobileMe launched in 2008 as a way to sync your iPhone’s contacts, calendar, and email with your computer and the web. It also gave you Dropbox-like online storage.

But the $99 per year service didn’t always work as advertised, causing reviewers to slam it. 

Apple decided to kill MobileMe last year with its introduction of iCloud. MobileMe users had until today to migrate all their stuff to iCloud.
