On July 7, 2009, the .Mac HomePage web application was discontinued by Apple. Now the company is discontinuing HomePage viewing as of Nov. 8 (that’s today).
As of July 7, MobileMe users were no longer be able to create new pages or edit existing pages using HomePage. HomePage was the web site creation tool in Apple’s US$99-per-year .Mac suite of Internet services (formerly .Mac, now MobileMe).
Last month Apple sent a letter to MobileMe subscribers that read:
“Over a year ago, we retired the .Mac HomePage application for publishing new pages, but allowed previously published pages to remain viewable on the web. On November 8, 2010, we will discontinue online viewing of photos, movies, and files shared using .Mac HomePage.
“Please note that your content will not be deleted. Any photos, movies, or files you have published using HomePage will continue to remain on your MobileMe iDisk in the Movies, Pictures, or Public folders. We recommend MobileMe Gallery as a great way to share photos and movies on the web. Please read these instructions on how to move your HomePage photos and movies to MobileMe Gallery.
“MobileMe members who have published web pages using iWeb will not be affected by this change. If you have used other software to publish web content to MobileMe or .Mac, or have questions about this change, please read this FAQ.”
