MobileMe downtime and minor (but frustrating) issues nothing new to the service, and in fact seem fairly common, but today’s issues are significantly more widespread than usual, affecting the vast majority of the service’s subscribers for an extended period of time.
Apple has recognized the isses affecting Mail, Me.com web apps and Find My iPhone, and says that “Normal service will be restored ASAP.”
