    Has anyone tried launching the MobileMe website on the iPad's Safari browser yet?
    This was an interesting handicap of the iPhone which made it necessary for Apple to create specialized apps for each feature in MobileMe. You'd think that would no longer be the case on the iPad with its larger browser experience, right?

    You would think that but nope! It redirects you to a new iPad MobileMe page that lets you use Find my iPhone, download the Gallery or iDisk apps or visit the MobileMe setup page, which doesn't yet include any info for the iPad. MobileMe fail!

    Apple needs to update the Gallery and iDisk apps for iPad at the very least. That was a big surprise to me. And the iTunes Remote app while they're at it.
