For those who were on Apple’s MobileMe platform, it has been strange days in the past week or so. Originally, when Apple killed off MobileMe and move to the iCloud platform, folks on MobileMe had an additional 20GB of storage space as a temporary measure during the transition process to stash their data, and this particular space expired on September 30th. The thing is, when October 1st rolled around, iCloud users were surprised to see their accounts extended by another 38 years, which was attributed to an apparent glitch.
Apple has fixed that since, and not only that, users need not fret about their data being wiped out overnight. In fact, the folks at Cupertino were nice enough to even offer the 20GB of extra storage space on iCloud by extending it by another year, which means 2013 would be when the (hopefully) actual death bells toll for prior MobileMe users.
