MobileMe paid disk space users get extension until at least September
It seems Apple is really serious about getting as many people as possible moved off of the legacy MobileMe product, which is set to shutter on June 30, 2012. Last month, Apple was offering existing Mac OS X Leopard customers free copies of Mac OS X Snow Leopard in attempts to entice users over to the newer iCloud product.
The subscription-based MobileMe product was announced several years ago with mixed results, as many users felt the value wasn't good enough for the price paid. Last year, then-CEO Steve Jobs announced the replacement release of iCloud, the new free, cloud-based sync mechanism that features the capability to backup iOS devices, sync calendars among all iOS devices, centralize contacts, and more.

I suspect the migration off of MobileMe hasn't gone as well as had been hoped for. I have been on MobileMe since 2002 (when it was Mac.com) and I haven't migrated to iCloud.

Migration to iCloud is just fine. I did it a few weeks after it was possible and had no ill effects. The reason they are doing this is because iDisk is going away completely and a lot of folks still use it. So they are giving folks extra time to keep it. I just wish they wouldn't abandon it. Now I've gotta go to drop box. I wouldn't even mind paying for iDisk, but Apple wants to can it...
