Business Insider puts the “sensational” in sensationalistic headlines

There’s an article on Business Insider (BI) today entitled, “Apple finally shuts down its failed cloud storage service,” in reference to MobileMe’s transition to iCloud. I’m embarrassed to have taken the bait, but here I am.

Note the “finally.” As if disgruntled users have been waiting for this day to come. Apple did not “shut down” the service, it transitioned MobileMe to a better and less expensive one ($99 vs. free), called iCloud. MobileMe was a lot more than a “cloud storage service,” and so is its successor, iCloud. Oh, BI. It’s too early in the morning for this nonsense.
