>> So what is MobileMe? Simple idea, it's like having exchange for the rest of us. With MobileMe we can all get push e-mail, contacts, and calendars right to our devices. So everything is up to date wherever you are. So how does it work? Well, MobileMe stores your information up in the cloud so you can get to it from anywhere using any of your devices. It will push the information up and down on the fly to keep everything up to date all the time. So come over here to an iMac, I could run this on a Mac or PC. You might guess what my favorite is. I'm going to launch my favorite browser, Safari and just log right in. So this is MobileMe. I've got my whole mail box setup on my directories I've setup. I'm going to select a few e-mails to file. Watch this. Again, you don't expect this from a web application. Drag and drop over to a folder. Feels just like a desktop application. Here's my contacts, can scroll through them. If I want to search, this is great again, what you expect from a desktop application. I'm going to start typing in some letters, L-A-R-S, as I'm typing I'm getting real-time focusing down on the things I want, not what you expect in a web application. I can click on things like this address and I get embedded Google map right here built into the address book. It's a really powerful and simple. Next the calendar, a rich calendar environment, got all the popular views so I can look at it by day, by month. I like the week view best. What does it take to move meetings around on this web interface? Well just like you'd expect. Grab a meeting, I'm going to move this one to tomorrow and get it out of the way. Clear up my afternoon. Here's that gallery. This incredible gallery now built into a web interface. I can skim through photos just like in iPhoto. I can click to go inside an album. Look how smooth this is. I'm going to change the sizes of the photos I want to look at on the web. Want to move things around and reorganize my library, just drag and drop. Here's a photo that should be rotated, just click and rotate it. And when I want to share this with my friends and family, here's the link right here. I can set it up password protected or not. And here's iDisk. iDisk now has a complete online interface. This is really great because if I have a big file and want to send it to someone, I don't have to e-mail. I can just right here click share and you'll get a link to go get it whenever you want it without having to do big e-mail files around. So I want to show you a little the interaction over the air between the iPhone and MobileMe. Now, you can imagine I'm out and about and somebody sends me an e-mail. The e-mails will get pushed immediately to you phone using push technology. I tap on that e-mail, there's that new e-mail. Tap on it to read it. So I got pushed this e-mail, it's inviting me to lunch. You just tap on that link. That link will take me to Google maps to show me where that restaurant is and tap on the blue button to get more information. What I'm going to do now is save this for later on, for when I need to go. So I'm gonna create a new contact. So I tap create a new contact and save that to my contacts on my phone. Let's go back to the computer and there's that e-mail. The e-mail that got pushed to the phone also got pushed to everywhere I access MobileMe. More interesting, if I click on my contacts there's that restaurant contact that I created on the phone and the time it took me to switch between these, MobileMe already pushed the contact information that I've created on the phone up to the cloud in the sky and I get to it now in Safari and it's all perfectly in sync wherever I need it to be. MobileMe, it's a service. Will be available for 99 dollars a year. That comes with 20 gigabytes of online storage for all that content. You might be asking, what about dot Mac. MobileMe replaces dot Mac. Yeah. It's way better. Dot Mac users can continue to use their dot Mac service, they can continue to use the dot Mac addresses, but they will be automatically upgraded to MobileMe and start using that service and switch over that name space whenever they want. So that's MobileMe. Thank you very much. ^E00:04:53
