MobileMe Mail Beta: Google Chrome need not apply

Safari 4 (Mac and PC), Firefox 3.6 (Mac and PC), and Internet Explorer 8 (PC) are fully supported.

Well, well, well, look whose browser is not invited to Apple’s MobileMe Mail beta program.

Of course, there’s no Opera, either.

A lot could be made of this, but it’s probably nothing. It makes sense for Apple to focus the beta program on the latest IE and Firefox, as well as their own, browsers. But it’ll be interesting to see if Chrome gets a shout when Mail is out of beta.

MySpace Launching Their Own Web Mail. Huh?

This seems utterly ridiculous to me. MySpace is going to launch their own web-based email system. Apparently, using the social network’s own messaging system is just not enough:

…this will give them their own addresses “@myspace.com

MySpace has long had “vanity” spaces. Perhaps they believe their members love the MySpace brand so much they’ll switch email addresses for it now. I have a hard time believing that.

MySpace is losing ground to Facebook, is this just a futile bid to slow down defections?
