The folks behind the social media-focused netbook operating system Jolicloud have added a handful of new web-based applications to the desktop operating system. Probably the most surprising is access to Apple’s MobileMe service for synchronizing email, contacts, and calendar events between a Mac, PC, and iPhone.

There are also new applications for Heavy, MindMeister, and, which makes it easy to keep track of realtime events through updates from social media sites including Twitter and Flickr.

Jolicloud is still only available to a limited number of private alpha testers, but the team plans to send out a new batch of invitiations soon. You can get your name on the waiting list by signing up for an invitation on the registration page.
