Apple has posted on its website that they have improved MobileMe syncing with Microsoft Outlook. This is a step in the right direction for the platform after it faced a very rocky start.
From Apple's website "We've recently improved the performance of MobileMe syncing with Microsoft Outlook on Windows. Contacts and calendars automatically sync whenever a change is made in Outlook, and likewise when a change is made on the web or from another device. To take advantage of this improvement make sure you're using iTunes 8.0.2 and MobileMe Control Panel 1.3 and that you have "sync" set to occur "automatically" in the Control Panel."
For those who have been working through the hiccups of the service this update will come as a welcomed addition as Apple continues to plant its roots in cloud operation.
