    My .Mac account handle is the same as it is here.

    While I don't have the time to work on my homepage, it's still there, uploaded to my magical little iDisk.

    Frankly, I don't use any of the features but e-mail very often, but the bonus games, utilities, and opportunity when needed to create iCards is all worth it to me.

    Since I'm still on dial-up I can't easily use most of the other features (backup for instance) though I do use iSync with the nice feature of being able to use my Safari bookmarks online when away from my computer.

    That's just awesome, IMHO.

    I subbed for teh $50 one, and I know I'll stick with it when the $100 bill hits. $100/year is worth it to me to have a dependable e-mail address and other features that I can use when I need them.

      **shrug** I doubt I'll ever use .MAC, mainly because my ISP already provides a stable e-mail address (I can have up to five through them) and also hosts Web pages. Those are the two items I would likely make the most use of if I ever signed up for .MAC. Since I already get that through my ISP, there's no reason to fork over another $100 for duplicate services.

      P.S. I've been thinking about going through my employer to get a discount on a new iMac — I can get a 1G 17-inch flat-screen iMac with 1G of RAM for $2023. Airport and Bluetooth ready, but not installed.

            You see, and that's why I have it. I get my dial-up free from my university, but I don't trust them nor their service very much (I know the tech people here) so I go with .Mac so I can have that reliable service. And my uni won't give me a flameflash login name.

              I have all the stuff that .mac would give me which I actually want.

              U of T gives us a free copy of NAV, and I they give me two IMAP accounts (I have a POP account thru my ISP).

              I also have about 40 Megs worth of space for FTP so there is no point in having an idisk.

              Still I liked itools when it was free.

                Very true.

                It all comes from what you actually get from your ISP... I get nothing but a connection and a bad e-mail service so the .Mac comes in nice and handy.

                        Again, this is a cheap plug going out to fellow Mac users.

                        I'm already getting a free gift for resubscribing (my choice of The Sims, Everquest, or $20 coupon in the Apple store).

                        It seems most certainly worth $100/year.

                        Likewise, when 10.3 comes out we'll have a nice easy way to access the .Mac iDisk.

                          $100/year for email, webserving, and a syncronization service?

                          Man, I got some ideal land to sell you in Florida...

                            And the rest. Auto backup software; free games; Antivirus protection (which stops us sending Windows people their viruses); Address, Calendar and Bookmark synchronisation; Automatic web disk; Web Page Creation tools.

                            Works out at just over 10 bucks a month. I liked itools when it was free, but you get a lot more now. A pity for Apple that I get enough of it free from the uni not to have to bother.

                              I get all those things for free.
