Apple has sent an email to MobileMe customers [1. So I’m told.
My Apple email hasn’t worked for almost two days.] explaining how they can request a free Snow Leopard installer DVD, according to Macgasm. Installing Snow Leopard will let stragglers upgrade to Lion and then install iCloud.
It’s unclear if Snow Leopard will be made available for free for everyone or just select MobileMe customers.
I have a MacBook Pro running Snow Leopard and a MacBook Air running
Lion. Once I migrated my MobileMe account to iCloud, my iCal data would no longer stay in sync. I thought I was out of luck until I found a fix from Damien Barrett. In fact, it’s simple to get iCloud calendars working with iCal on Snow Leopard.
As Damien explains, you’ll have to first delete the old account, and then create a CalDAV account that points to p06-caldav.icloud.com as the server. Once you’re done give it a few moments to sync and you’re back in business.
Read Damien’s post for all the details. I’ve done it and it’s working perfectly.
David Chartier points out that using Quick Look on Apps that have been purchased from the Mac App Store reveals the purchase date, not modification date. That’s pretty neat.
In my testing, it seems to be unique to Lion.
