Yesterday Apple sent an email to MobileMe subscribers. The email was titled “MobileMe Update” and offered a free extension of the MobileMe services for 60 additional days.
We have already made many improvements to MobileMe, but we still have many more to make. To recognize our users’ patience, we are giving every MobileMe subscriber as of today a free 60 day extension. This is in addition to the one month extension most subscribers have already received. We are working very hard to make MobileMe a great service we can all be proud of. We know that MobileMe’s launch has not been our finest hour, and we truly appreciate your patience as we turn this around.
More information and frequently asked questions are available at Apple’s knowledge base.
If you are interested in buying MobileMe (previously known as .Mac) in Saudi Arabia, you have the following options: buy it online directly from Apple (after the free trial) for $99, buy it from local Apple retailers at 460 SR (last I checked) or buy it from Amazon for $77 (and use Aramex or myus for shipping).
