Jobs's Mail


MobileMe was launched too early and "not up to Apple's standards.".
Apple should have rolled MobileMe's services out slowly instead of launching it "as a monolithic service."
For example, over-the-air iPhone syncing could have gone up initially, then web apps one by one (Mail, Calendar, etc.)
It was a mistake to launch MobileMe at the same time as iPhone 3G, iPhone 2.0 software and the App Store.
We all had more than enough to do, and MobileMe could have been delayed without consequence.
The MobileMe launch clearly demonstrates that we have more to learn about Internet services.
The vision of MobileMe is both exciting and ambitious, and we will press on to make it a service we are all proud of by the end of this year."
