Apple has sent out a reminder to MobileMe members who subscribed back in the old .Mac days and used HomePage to publish content to the web.

The short version is, after November 8 you'll no longer be able to view those pages though the content will remain in your iDisk and can be reused in things like MobileMe Gallery, or republished via the iWeb app. (Or who knows, maybe something even more interesting when/if iLife '11 is announced).

For the long version, follow after the break.

And we can't help but ask -- was anyone still using HomePage anyway?

Dear MobileMe member,

Over a year ago, we retired the .Mac HomePage application for publishing new pages, but allowed previously published pages to remain viewable on the web. On November 8, 2010, we will discontinue online viewing of photos, movies, and files shared using .Mac HomePage.

Please note that your content will not be deleted. Any photos, movies, or files you have published using HomePage will continue to remain on your MobileMe iDisk in the Movies, Pictures, or Public folders. We recommend MobileMe Gallery as a great way to share photos and movies on the web. Please read these instructions on how to move your HomePage photos and movies to MobileMe Gallery.

MobileMe members who have published web pages using iWeb will not be affected by this change. If you have used other software to publish web content to MobileMe or .Mac, or have questions about this change, please read this FAQ.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. Thank you for being a MobileMe member.


The MobileMe Team
