MobileMe iDisk file share
Apple has announced that the iDisk service, a feature of MobileMe, can now be used to share large files. Rather than attempt to e-mail files that contain large amounts of data, users can upload the content to a public folder in their iDisk account. After choosing the individuals to share the information with, iDisk will automatically send e-mails containing a download link. The recipient can then access the files or even post their own documents into the folder.
For security purposes, users can assign a password to the files or set a maximum number of days that the download link is available.
Current MobileMe subscribers can use the sharing service for free.
