03 Apple makes transition from MobileME to iCloud more appealing

As MobileMe, a subscription-based set of online services is scheduled for discontinuation by June and with iCloud only being supported in Snow Leopard and Lion, this will make the offer a much appreciated one for many yet to jump onto the cloud. It also means that upgrading to Lion would be half the price as a download for it is available via the App Store which can only be initiated if already running Snow Leopard.

So, for all of you still holding a MobileMe account and running an OS up to a half decade old. now there's no more excuses and you can get with the times on the cheap!
