In addition to the mobileme.com as we reported on Friday, it looks like Apple is set to change the .Mac service to me.com as well. MacRumors found some Apple names in the registration information of me.com which now point to snapsville.com – a social networking site.
Markmonitor is sure doing a poor job of hiding Apple’s domain ambitions.
As there is much code in the upcoming iPhone SDK linking to mobileme.com where .Mac used to exist, it is likely that the upgrade will be announced at WWDC with direct tie-ins with the new iPhone and iPhone software.
Why change from .Mac to me.com? Very likely so that the service can become Cross-platform.
We’ll see next week!
