Take Control of MobileMe, 2nd Edition

Book Description

MobileMe has become a Swiss-army knife of online services, offering not only a whizzy "push" data-syncing service for tracking calendar, contact, bookmark, and note info on a variety of devices, but also email services, online storage and file sharing, a place to put your iWeb site or share photos or videos, and more. Take Control of MobileMe helps you understand the features and get set up, and then it dives into the details of real-world tasks.
