Ars Technica is reporting that Steve Jobs sent out an internal email that acknowledged missteps in the rollout of MobleMe:

Steve Jobs: MobileMe “not up to Apple’s standards”

“The MobileMe launch clearly demonstrates that we have more to learn about Internet services,” Jobs says. “And learn we will. The vision of MobileMe is both exciting and ambitious, and we will press on to make it a service we are all proud of by the end of this year.”

Apple may get a mulligan this time from the faithful, but the cloud computing space is rapidly becoming the most competitive place on the internet, and such failures won’t be tolerated for long.

My own experience with MobleMe has left me disappointed, and I’ve decided to stay with the google calendar and gmail solution, and added SugarSync to manage my files across computers.
