The free ride's over, MobileMe users. Apple has begun informing users of its now defunct cloud-storage service, MobileMe, that they will no longer have the complimentary storage space on iCloud they've enjoyed the past two years. When Apple introduced iCloud, a cloud storage service that replaced MobileMe, it allowed MobileMe customers to have 25 gigabytes of storage free even though iCloud only offered 5 GB free to new customers. Apple said the gesture was an expression of its appreciation for MobileMe users who paid $99 per year for the service.

Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) urged the nation's governors to ensure the safe storage of ammonium nitrate, a dangerous chemical that exacerbated the April explosion at the West, Texas, fertilizer plant.   “We know what has to be done. Ammonium nitrate has to be stored in a separate facility," said Boxer at a press conference Tuesday. "It's not rocket science here. "   When heated or contaminated, ammonium nitrate can explode. Hundreds were injured and 15 died in the blast, which also damaged or destroyed nearby homes, businesses and three unoccupied schools.

Swamped by stuff? You're not alone. The average homeowner spends at least 20 minutes a day "looking for things," according to home storage experts. "People have more household stuff these days," said Mark Hillman, home storage merchandiser for Lowe's Home Improvement Warehouse. "Customers ask us over and over: How can we control the household mess? Some people take storage lightly, but organization creates time. Good storage makes life easier." A specific plan can help immensely.

Mayor Tom Daly said since the project is within a residential area, "we owe it to the neighbors to be extra careful" in approving the plans. The council postponed the matter until Jan.

Sid Soffer, a local resident well known for his numerous battles with City Hall, lost another legal battle Wednesday when the state Court of Appeal ruled that five vehicles stored on Soffer's property were a public nuisance.

Behind an art museum's gleaming galleries lies the off-limits and uninviting space that can hold as much as 95% of its collection: storage. These spaces are often packed with hundreds or even thousands of paintings, decorative art objects and other artifacts that can languish, unappreciated and untouched by curators, for years. But as a way to bring art out from its underbelly and display more of a museum's possessions, several institutions are embracing "visible storage" in public areas, exhibiting the art without the expense of a spacious, beautifully installed and curated show.
