Apple shut down its .Mac service yesterday to launch MobileMe and then ... ran into problems. As of today, MobileMe is still not available, and of course .Mac is down as well.

So I have to wonder.

Where's Ina Fried's scathing blog attack on Apple about this? After all, she went after Microsoft this week, at least twice, for a beta version of a Web site being delayed. (Here and here. And here too, really.)

Surely in the interests of fairness...  :)

But seriously folks. This isn't a big deal. Just like the delays in a beta Vista compatibility Web site are not a big deal.
