Forgive us our skepticism, but this is beginning to sound like a broken refrain. Apple has, once again, offered an extension for all of its MobileMe subscribers. In recognition of the frustration endured by those of us that have seen MobileMe go up, and down, and up, and down over the past month and a half, the company is doing its best to make amends. The current 60-day extension is being offered in addition to the original 30-day free pass, giving a grand total of three months of free service to anyone that subscribed to the syncing service from the word “go”. It’s a nice gesture, and one that certainly deserves some credit, but with Apple alluding to more possible downtime and interruption in their apology email we have to wonder if the company is anticipating even more fallout as they work to make their faltering service more robust. Then again, perhaps we’re just being cynical. Apple certainly isn’t known for their willingness to admit fault, so perhaps we should simply revel in the Cupertino’s admission that “MobileMe’s launch has not been our finest hour”, accept our free extension, and move on.
