There are SO many file sharing services out there. Yet, there’s no good way for me to upload a 500MB zip file of photos, and share those files with my friends. After an event like a wedding, i need to be able to send *the full size images* to others, and they need to be able to download them with no accounts and no fuss.
MobileMe has solved this. I can easily upload files to my public folder on my desktop or via the web interface. Then in just 2 clicks I can get a public or password protected url to give to my friends. I can set an expiration date and forget about it.
MobileMe isn’t the most successful product out there. But I’ve always been a supporter because it’s all about quality, it’s all about doing things right. *Because* it’s a paid service, they can offer IMAP email, be totally ad free, and now offer dead simple file sharing. For $99/year ($50 with the employee discount), it’s a steal.
It really doesn’t get any simpler than this.
