Has Shirt-Pocket looked at MobileMe and/or tried .mac accounts for syncing?

Hi Dave,

A buddy of mine and his wife have a gorgeous desktop iMac 24" + a Macbook and they'd like to do the same. Work on either, but have them synced "automagically" ...

I told him that perhaps MobileMe would do this for him relatively painlessly. He's also going to get a Time Capsule (I will also recommend that he SD! to an additional external drive too, for at least the home machine--which they could always boot on their Macbook, if necessary, as well as their desktop of course, then update that machine/those machines with Time Capsule).

So... Have you looked at Mobile Me or its predecessor .mac? What's your recommendation for keeping things looking relatively similar on two pieces of Mac hardware? Set up both /Desktop and /Macbook document folders on each, where all productivity apps save to their appropriately named folders, then sync regularly, and whenever one needs to copy between the two folders, do so? (Ugh.)

Or does the sync "just work" (in either .mac or MobileMe) to use a common docs folder, and only worry about the occasional instance as they arise (probably rare for them--they're not developers!) that they'd have to do a "merge" of some particular doc they've both worked on (this really would be *quite* rare for them--most of the time their Macbook just sits there waiting for a trip they're taking)?

Thanks for any advice--sorry for the long post...

~ Brad
