If you were an existing MobileMe user when the service made the transition to Apple's iCloud, your days of free bonus storage are nearly over. Apple began sending out email reminders to former MobileMe members today, reminding them that on September 30, their accounts will downgrade to just 5GB of storage.

SG Comics Presents: Apple Eats Android Ice Cream Sandwich

Last week's Google I/O kicked off the first keynote with an image on the big screen of an adorable Android robot ready to swallow an apple, bringing laughter to the crowd of 5000 attendees.
