Waste of money,
This review is from: MobileMe Single User (Mac) (CD-ROM)
Doesn't do anything for me, nothing in it that can't be done with Dropbox which is free. Waste of money, shall not be renewing.

It gives you substantially more space than Dropbox, online webspace, picture gallery and you can Locate, Lock and Wipe iOS devices.

Hi. The paid version of Dropbox offers like 50GB of space, far, far more than MobileMe.
However, the Find-My-iPhone feature is invaluable if your phone is ever stolen!
It's very expensive for just this one feature, but I guess it's far cheaper than having to shell out £500 for a new iPhone! No other app can do this because it uses Apple's own private APIs and secret sauce.

I use Dropbox for files, but I have never noticed the area where it can be used to update your calendar (or address book). Is this on there? Curious, as am also not prepared to shell out if this function is available for free. However, all I can see on Dropbox is file management...

Dropbox doesn't handle the calendar and contacts functions; neither does it seamlessly sync that kind of information between computer, web, and iPhone/iPad. It is possible to get much of this functionality for free, if you search on MacWorld.com you should find relevant advice, though depending on your needs you may end up giving all your data to Google.
Personally I find £55 a small price to pay to have all my contacts, calendars and todos automatically synced between different devices, and I use the MobileMe web services to share photos from iCalendar and web sites. The find my iPhone feature is handy - I mislaid my iPad recently and was able to put a remote code lock on it until I found it. Having said that, I use dropbox for file syncing because that's the weakest part of the mobileMe service.

Appreciate your reply - have already signed up for the Mobileme 60 day free trial and I'll be purchasing. Disagree with OP as Dropbox, while good for files, it does not cover calendar and contacts functions, which I really need to synch across devices too. This will ensure that I free up time from managing my devices more than they manage me!

Why didn't you try a free trial membership before buying this?
