MobileMe: Missing in Action at iPad 2 Event

The biggest surprise of the iPad 2 presentation is what didn't show up at Yerba Buena: MobileMe. After Apple pulled the product codes, and also removed the product from its shelves, most tech pundits (including myself) thought there was sure to be major news about Apple's cloud-based service.

Nope. Nothing. Not even a mention from anyone on stage. So where does this leave MobileMe? Who knows. Here's thought though: Cupertino may not have anything major to announce, thus any change- including the much rumored switch to a free service - may come without fanfare.

No one said that Apple needed to make a big production out of every move it makes. And really in the end, is it that important? Even so, its just curious that the company wouldn't make a mention of it. Maybe they're waiting for the iPhone 5 announcement to make the big splash, since MobileMe really is of more use to the smartphone user than tablet types.

I guess we'll find out.
