Apple's MobileMe will close on June 30, 2012.

From the Wikipedia page:

MobileMe (formerly .Mac and iTools) is a subscription-based collection of online services and software offered by Apple Inc. Originally launched on January 5, 2000, as iTools, a free collection of Internet-based services for users of Mac OS 9, Apple relaunched it as .Mac on July 17, 2002, when it became a paid subscription service primarily designed for users of Mac OS X. Apple relaunched the service again as MobileMe at WWDC 2008 on July 9, 2008, now targeting Mac OS X, Windows, iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch users.

On February 24, 2011, Apple discontinued offering MobileMe through its retail stores. The MobileMe retail boxes are also not offered through resellers anymore. Apple is also no longer accepting new subscribers for MobileMe. At the WWDC 2011, on June 6, Apple announced it will launch iCloud in the Northern Hemisphere Autumn 2011, which will replace MobileMe for new users. MobileMe itself will continue to function until June 30, 2012, at which point the service will no longer be available, although users are encouraged to migrate to iCloud before that date.

Site structure

(Copied from Wikipedia) There are public subdomain access points to each MobileMe members' individual account functions. These provide direct public web access to each MobileMe users account, via links to each function directly; Gallery, Public folder, published website, and published calendars (not available currently). See list:

  • http://www.me.com – member login.
  • http://gallery.me.com/<username> – member public photo/video Gallery.
  • http://public.me.com/<username> – member Public folder access.
  • http://web.me.com/<username> – member Website access.
  • http://ical.me.com/<username>/<calendar name> – member individual calendar publishing. In the older system, many calendars could be published at the same time. In the current iteration of MobileMe, there is no calendar publishing available.

web.me.com and web.mac.com

The domains web.me.com and web.mac.com point to the same web pages.

Tools/Archiving

There's a repository on the ArchiveTeam Github: https://github.com/ArchiveTeam/mobileme-grab

web.me.com

The web sites on web.me.com can be downloaded with a standard wget --mirror command.

public.me.com

The files on public.me.com are accessible via WebDAV: https://public.me.com/ix/<username>

A script is available in the git repository.

ical.me.com

To download a calendar you need the username and the name of the calendar. (There seems to be no way to list all calendars of a specific user.) Once you have these two names, you can download the ics file using one of these urls:

  • http://ical.mac.com/WebObjects/iCal.woa/wa/Download/<calendarname>.ics?u=<username>&n=<calendarname>.ics
  • http://homepage.mac.com/<username>/.calendars/<calendarname>.ics
