Nerd move of the week... send email to CEO of Apple...
Hi Tim, First off, I want to say congratulation on your new position as CEO. I’ve been following Apple for half my life, and based on the fantastic things I’ve read about your career thus far…it appears that all the pieces have fallen into the right places.
Second, I wanted to let you know that I am a little bummed about the transition from MobileMe to iCloud. I understand its a necessary move when looking at the biggest picture and long-term strategies…but I feel like us subscribers are kind of getting the shaft. I mean, I have built my personal and professional life around MobileMe and its features. Having the email aliases has been HUGE for me. It’s given me the ability to have multiple things happening at once, yet they are separate and streamlined at the same time. I understand that my main address won’t change, but what about my aliases? Will I have sign up for multiple iCloud accounts in order to keep them? Also, losing iDisk is going to be a big blow. I’ve read that iCloud will be offering online storage.. but will it work like iDisk? Will I have the ability to share my files with clients and vice versa? There are many other questions bouncing around inside my head.. but I think you get the picture.
Bottom line is, I feel like a lot of these details are still up in the air at this point, and it is putting unnecessary stress on people like me. I like the way I have things set up. Yes, there are a few bugs here and there, but the overall operation runs pretty smoothly. I just wanted to share this with you because I am sure there are a lot of people out there in the same boat as me, and if we don’t speak up, we will never be heard.
Thanks for listening and keep on rockin’ & rollin’ sir.. the future is going to be exciting!
