Apple updated the MobileMe service today. The three areas of improvement are in Mail, Find My iPhone and a new service navigation on me.com.
Apple now offers a Find My iPhone App. You can use the app to locate your iPhone when you lose it. Of course you need to use your friend's iPhone to do that. After installing it you can sign in with your mobileMe account to locate your lost precious iPhone.
The all-new MobileMe Mail at me.com is now out of beta and available to all members.
When you go to me.com you'll see two persistent navigation features at the top of every page: a cloud icon on the left, and your name on the right.
Clicking the cloud icon (or using the key combination of Shift-Esc) opens a new application switcher which lets you move to any other MobileMe web application from the one you're currently using.
More details on the Apple MobileMe Newssite.
Apple really should make MobileMe free. A year of MobileMe service sells for $99. The iPhone is already expensive enough with initial cost and monthly carrier fees. If MobileMe would just come with the iPhone it would give Google a real headache. Right now I and most people I know use the free Google services on the iPhone and not Apple's MobileMe.

Apple's first wearable will not ship until 2015
If true, Apple, as it has always been, must be very confident about its timing. After all, it will be the company's new product from an entirely different category, and people will most likely be patient about it.
The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
