stirt@icloud.com — catchy, what?

It's my newest email address, so new it doesn't even exist yet and won't until Tim Cook* flips the switch at One Infinite Loop in a couple weeks and turns it on.

Word just came in from Apple (above) that in addition to stirt@mac.com and stirt@me.com, Apple's decided to go for the trifecta.

I'm down with that.

Everyone knows that the more email addresses you have the more important you are.

I mean, that's a no-brainer.


Wait a sec... what's that music I'm hearing?

*I know that Tim Cook doesn't literally flip a switch to turn it on, silly billy.

Steve Jobs does that.


Note added at 3:33 p.m. today (the original post was signed, sealed and delivered at around 2 p.m.): Just for the heck of it I tried my new icloud.com address and darned if it isn't already live (below).

More email addresses I need not have!

What's a goy to do when his computer company creates three (3) identical classes of email address (with five (5) alias email addresses) to deal with?

The spinning wheel of email addresses on my iPhone 4S seems unending!

Oh well, one of the Apple patent sites has a current report that Apple has been granted a patent on a process that disables functionality of part, or all, of the iPhone. Perhaps I'll see if I can bring up the issue of disabling email addresses at the next shareholder's meeting?

At least Steve Jobs is free from email.
