MobileMe revamped with features, 100% free to users?

A new report is suggesting that not only it is going to be completely FREE, but that Apple’s revamped MobileMe service could also offer new integrated social features taking from Facebook, Foursquare, and uStream.
Rumored features to come to revamped MobileMe service:
● 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.
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.
It’s like having your own website that’s dynamic, all based on what you are doing at that very moment in time. Apple thinks of it as having a webserver in your pocket. Everything will be dynamically updated to MobileMe.
