MobileMe rumours heating up again

Apple's MobileMe serviceRemember a while back all the speculation about Apple putting MobileMe in the Cloud and meshing it with iTunes for streaming on the go? Well, it’s looking like Apple is about to end the US$30 MobileMe and iWork rebate offer when you buy a new Mac. They have already ceased to sell boxed versions and according to this latest rumour an internal memo at Cupertino is saying that the rebate program was to cease as of yesterday. At the same time, the rebate offer on iWork is also to cease, indicating perhaps that an update is imminent. Whether any of this is linked to iOS 5 remains to be seen but it could all be tied in to the success of the iPad and the need to refresh the desktop version of the productivity suite, which was last refreshed in 2009.
