According to an exclusive report (http://macte.ch/YtK8H) by “Cult of Mac,” Apple’s MobileMe is in for bigger changes than anyone has anticipated. MobileMe is Apple’s US$99-per-year, subscription suite of Internet services.
Rumors have abounded this week that Apple would be soon offer the service for free, perhaps in conjunction with a “streaming only” iPhone that would lack internal storage of any sort. (I’m dubious; see http://www.macnews.com/2011/02/16/cloud-not-entirely-not-ever). Now “Cult of Mac,” quoting an unnamed source, says that, among the chances planned for MobileMe, are:
° A live video-streaming service like Ustream;
° A location-based check-in system like Gowalla or Foursquare;
° A geo-tagging system codenamed “Tokens” that tags real-world locations, “like Facebook Places on steroids.”
