Warning: your calendar is in danger with Apple’s Mobile Me

Apple’s Mobile Me just deleted every single item from my Outlook calendar on Windows Vista. Gone. Deleted.

Luckily I have them backed up on Google, but what a scare.

Apple’s secrecy keeps them from properly testing out their apps with tons of users, the way other companies do who aren’t so worried about secrecy.

Other people are reporting the same thing. Do not buy Mobile Me. Do not install it. Be warned.

Update: Walt Mossberg, tech journalist for the Wall Street Journal, said to avoid Mobile Me too, weeks ago. I should have listened to him.

Update 2: this post got a separate conversation going over on FriendFeed.
