MobileMe no longer available from Apple.com, revamp coming?

TiPb readers jumping on new MacBook Pros today have let us know that Apple is no longer offering discounted MobileMe boxes as an option along with a new Mac purchase. A quick check shows you can't buy it from store.apple.com at all anymore.

MacRumors confirms that Apple has notified resellers that they won't be producing the boxes for retail anymore either.

Could this be the first sign a revamp is really on its way? Could we -- dare I say it -- see a new MobileMe at next Wednesday's iPad 2 event?

iPhone nano -- with no storage?

Cult of Mac is following up on the iPhone nano rumors from Bloomberg and Wall Street Journal saying Apple will make the low price points by getting rid of all onboard storage. No NAND Flash storage, no big price tag. Apple would get around this by streaming everything from an iTunes.com/MobileMe cloud just like Apple TV 2 does today.

Verbs IM client for iPhone now available in the App Store

Verbs for iPhone is a gorgeous new IM client that just recently hit the app store. It supports GTalk and AIM/MobileMe at the moment. I'm hoping support for more clients like Facebook chat and MSN are added in an update. What really got me hooked on Verbs is the beautiful interface. It looks like an app Apple would build natively into iOS.

Another feature I really like is the fact that it supports Cloud and Droplr file transfer services. I personally love Droplr and use it exclusively for sharing images and video. I chose it as my Pick of the Week a few weeks back. This is an added bonus for me.

I would like to see full push implemented as it currently only supports local notifications. This means you'll receive notifications only if the app is running or multitasking. If you close it from the multitasking tray, you won't receive notifications any longer. Not a huge issue for some, but may be a big one for others. If you're looking for a decent IM client that comes at a fair price, make sure you give Verbs a try and let us know what you think!

[$2.99 - iTunes Link]

Find My Friends feature hidden in iOS 4.3?

It looks as though we will be seeing a new feature soon in iOS called Find My Friends, an extension to Find my iPhone that could be similar to services such as Google Latitude.

A reference to the name was found in the iOS 4.3 beta for developers and it appears to be linked to MobileMe accounts. If it is similar to Latitude, it would allows you to track your friends via their iPhone's GPS (Naturally you would have to agree to broadcast your position so as to protect your privacy).
