Last year when Apple announced the end of Mobile Me and the beginning of i Cloud, I knew exactly when I would transition at least one of my accounts: the week prior to the June 30, 2012 cutoff date. For those that have justified putting this off until now, here are some tips tailored for you.

Apple gave Mobile Me subscribers just under a year to migrate to i Cloud before the lights went out on Mobile Me permanently and offered a free year of service to anyone with an active Mobile Me account on June 6, 2011 (sadly only two weeks after I had finished by 60-day free trial without renewing).
The time has finally come: you need to make the move from Mobile Me to i Cloud, as Mobile Me officially goes dark on June 30.
Mobile Me started its life as i Tools, a free collection of Internet-based tools for Mac users that launched on January 5, 2000.
