When Apple announced iCloud a year ago, it was with the intention of making cloud storage, syncing, and services mainstream. Demoting the computer to just another client that can access your centrally stored data. iCloud has been a success, but we know there are still some of you out there clinging on to your MobileMe iDisk storage for dear life. Well, while Apple has allowed you to continue to use the service, it's now coming to an end. MobileMe will shut its doors for good tomorrow, June 30th. You can still migrate your data to iCloud, and you should probably do that. There's no iDisk replacement though, so you might wanna just drag and drop any of that stuff over to Dropbox, which is a free (and awesome) replacement.

Remember mixtapes? Not playlists burned to a CD, but real mixtapes on cassette, passed around among friends or maybe given to your crush. All the thought that went into choosing the songs, the agonizing over what to put on the cover, the finger crossing that the last track wouldn’t get cut off due to the tape ending… Mixtapes were awesome.

The Mixtape USB Memory Stick has a capacity of 64 mb, which translates to about 12 tracks or 1 hour of music - just enough to get your point across musically. The stick comes packaged in a gift box designed to look like an honest-to-goodness mixtape. There’s even dedicated space to write out the track listing by hand, and spots to fill in To: and From:, so your BFF or crush never forgets who used those Phil Collins tracks to express their true feelings. Design house SUCK UK is responsible for this bit of retro brilliance.
