Last night Apple CEO Steve Jobs sent an internal email to Apple employees admitting that the MobileMe launch was a mistake, and that they company had a lot to learn. Ars Technica had a chance to look at the email, and provide a few quotes.
Jobs started by saying that the MobileMe launch was “not up to Apple’s standards”, and continued by saying “It was a mistake to launch MobileMe at the same time as iPhone 3G, iPhone 2.0 software and the App Store…We all had more than enough to do, and MobileMe could have been delayed without consequence.”
As a result of all the problems, the MobileMe team has been restructured and Eddy Cue will now be in charge of all Internet based Apple initiatives, including iTunes, the App Store, and MobileMe.
Jobs concluded by saying : “The MobileMe launch clearly demonstrates that we have more to learn about Internet services…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.”
