Well this is a tantalizing find. Boy Genius Reports reports that some MobileMe users are seeing their account type switch from “Individual” to “Full Member,” the hope being that a WWDC announcement will make everyone a “Free Member” by default.
Of course it could amount to nothing, but there have been murmurings that this might happen, and in any event it’s certainly something we’ve been hoping would happen.
As Matt explained, MobileMe’s services aren’t really a luxury anymore, and users are increasingly growing to expect that type of seamless, automatic syncing on their devices. Announcing a free, basic MobileMe service at WWDC would go a long way to getting Apple’s head in the cloud and fulfilling that expectation. [BGR]
