Could this be the death of Apple’s iDisk?

Airport Extreme & Time Machine | from the looks of the spec on these new network devices there is a firmware upgrade. MobileMe customers will be able to access any file on these devices. The drive must be connected via USB on the Airport Extreme.

Note for existing AirPort Extreme and Time Capsule customers
Existing AirPort Extreme (MA073 and MB053) and Time Capsule (MB276 and MB277) customers can access their AirPort Disk / Time Capsule disk through Mobile Me over the Internet by upgrading to AirPort Utility 5.4.1 and AirPort firmware 7.4.1. Subscription to Mobile Me online services is required for this feature. Simultaneous dual-band Wi-Fi and Guest Networking features are only available to new AirPort Extreme (MB763) and Time Capsule (MB764 and MB765) customers.

Pretty nice feature. Is this the end of the iDisk?  Let’s hope so.  That has been an annoyance to me to say the least.  I hate the way files have to be stored in it. I am meticulous about file folder structure, and having to pull something out of it so I can use it at work is aggregating. I know I need to relax. :)

However, being able to access file MY personal cloud, with my own structure, is a pretty cool feature to me. I won’t need iDisk with this feature added to my AE.
