Revamped MobileMe Will Be a Mashup of Facebook, Foursquare, uStream?

A new report suggests that Apple's revamped MobileMe service could offer new social features taking from Facebook, Foursquare, and uStream.

According to a CultofMac source, Apple is working on:
● A live video-streaming service like Ustream
● A location-based check-in system like Gowalla or Foursquare
● A geo-tagging system codenamed "Tokens" that tags real-world locations, like Facebook Places on steroids.

"A ton of ideas were hatched on what they could do, and from what I heard, a lot of their ideas were shelved for a later date in order to focus on a few of them," said their source.

According to our source, the centerpiece of the new MobileMe services is a dynamic webpage that sounds like a mashup of Facebook, Foursquare and Ustream. The webpage will collect a ton of information that is automatically uploaded from an iOS device, including the user’s location, photos they’ve taken and video they’ve shot.

It will also detail music they’re listening to, games they’re playing, applications they’re using, music and apps they’ve purchased, web sites they’ve visited, status updates, and so on. Users can even send live video to their page, much like the live video-streaming service Ustream.

"The concept is that you would have you own website that's dynamic, all based on what you are doing at that moment," said their source. "Apple thinks of it as having a webserver in your pocket… everything will be dynamically updated to MobileMe."

At least make it free for us who bought an iPhone or iPad.. I don't mind paying for MobileMe but it's way to pricy for what you get.. At LEAST half the current price would be more appropriate..
