Could “Mobile Me” be the new name for .Mac? That’s what it looks like, at least according to what Blogging Robots (is that name a social statement?) has discovered. Strings in the iPhone 2.0 SDK reveal the name “Mobile Me” left, right and center, as pictured here.
More evidence: Apple trademarked the name in 2006.
So reasonable minds have concluded that, yes, Mobile Me is the new .Mac. Dotmac is fairly opaque and doesn’t really convey what it does, while Mobile Me, I think, is a little more descriptive.
