I mentioned in my previous post that I have subscribed to .Mac, Apple’s online service for file sharing, email, and so forth.
One of the neat things .Mac can do is automatically synchronize your Mac’s address book, email, and calendar so that you can access it using a web browser on any computer. I was trying to figure out why my MacBook’s address book entries weren’t showing up in the .Mac web interface, and finally read the little notice on the site saying that synchronization was temporarily down.
Then I read the notice a little more closely: synchronization services have been down since October 19th. That is over 10 days. So much for Apple’s vaunted reliability 😉
