Apple intros MobileMe, letting you access email, calendar and contacts anywhere

In a grandiose act of me-too catch-up to Google, Apple today announced a suite of software that would have been revolutionary … if it had been announced in 2003. Matching Google app-for-app is MobileMe, letting users log into a website with a billion-dollar URL:, and access their email, address book and calendar, all online and costing "only" $99 a year.

On the plus side, there is the ability to store data up there on the cloud in the form of 20GB of iDisk space, but beyond that, it looks to me like Google has already been there and done that long ago with its free Gmail (with contacts) and Calendar applications. Wonder if is taken?
