On August 19, 2010, I activated my MobileMe account. I knew MobileMe when I got my Mac. However, I have been not sure if I need MobileMe or not. For email, I have several free emails such as Hotmail, Yahoo Mail, Gmail and AOL Mail. For cloud space or disk, I have Dropbox free account. I have also heard a lot about asking Apple to provide MobileMe for fee for Mac users from my subscribed podcasts. I have been expecting Apple to give this free offer for a while.

HTML5 and Web Browsers

I just finished watching several WWDC10 videos on HTML5. I am very impressed by the new features in HTML5, with CSS3 and JavaScript, to support interactions, animations, and offline data store. Apple claims that Safari is 100% compatible with HTML5, and provided some examples on the web. My understanding is that all those new features are just API gateways, and it will be up to the browser to provide support in its back-end engine.

In my past month, the progress of my iPhone application development has been very slow, almost on hold. There have been too many things happening during the time. A family of my relatives came to my house for visit. That’s the main reason I cannot concentrate on my project.
