Me: The kiss of death for software projects

Is the word “Me” responsible for the problems with MobileMe? Labnol points out that that three major “me” initiatives – Windows Me, .me, and MobileMe all angered folks immediately and nearly failed – or did fail.

Consider Windows Me – flop – and the .me domain name. Both of these projects essentially withered on the vine and caused much damage to their respective creators. Is MobileMe next?

You rarely see buggy products from the iPhone inventors but Mobile Me (formerly .mac) is definitely one. Apple customers have lost thousands of important emails in the past few days while some did not have access to email for over a week thanks to this new cloud computing platform called Mobile Me.
