Take Control of MobileMe

Book Description

MobileMe provides oodles of features, but are you making the most of your $99-per-year membership? MobileMe has become a Swiss-army knife of online services, offering not only a whizzy "push" data syncing service for tracking calendar, contact, and bookmark info on a variety of devices, but also email services, online storage and file sharing, Web hosting, and more. Take Control of MobileMe helps you understand the features and get set up, and then it dives into the details of real-life projects.
