Mobileme the worst Apple product

Forgive me I need to get this out of my chest!

I takes ages to import all my files back from iDisk. It’s only 45mb pictures folder for god’s sake and it’s been HOURS! I always had to turn off the Airport connection to stop the loading window.  I am definitely leaving mobileme for good. I have been a good customer for over 5 years and this is what I get. The damn iDisk is freaking SLOW. Mobileme is the worst Apple product ever! 

It doesn’t even allow me to sync my files anymore, too much glitch and problems for $99 USD. The transition from dotmac to mobileme is really a disaster. Heck, even dotmac wasn’t that good either but at least is didn’t give me tons of trouble sync my files. The point is,  I spent $495 USD for 5 years just for what? Only for email address and storing my 45mb pictures with tons of glitch? And now it’s getting far worst than I thought, I can’t get my files back!

iPhone – update

As I wrote in my previous post about getting a new cellphone iPhone because I couldn’t find my old cellphone. Well, It turned out right before we decide to go and spend ¥160000 for two iPhone contracts, I found my beloved old cellphone under the car seat lmao.

Soon after I found it, I told my husband to cancel the reservation. Current iPhone doesn’t really appeal to me that much, so I probably wait until Apple release their next iPhone upgrade.  Don’t get me wrong, as much as I love Apple product I just can’t find myself to spend ¥80000 (¥850 USD) for one cellphone with less feature than my old cellphone has and Softbank limited signal reception area. I don’t live in  a big city and Softbank just doesn’t have a great service as much as Docomo gives. There are still many areas in Japan that Softbank couldn’t handle especially the small towns in Japan.

iPhone – Yes or No?


To be honest I didn’t plan to get any new phone at the moment, at least not until next year but because I lost my cellphone and I couldn’t freaking find it I thought maybe I could get a new one but this time changing my long time cellphone provider from NTT Docomo to Softbank and get the new iPhone.

After I played with it again for a few minutes or so at the store today, I felt dissapointed, actually it was kind of big disspointment from iPhone.

There are many features from my cellphone that I loved and iPhone doesn’t have them, including the iPhone camera.
