Hello:



I've decided!



$49,95, for .Mac is, more or less, a cigarette per day...



As I don't smoke, since a long time ago, I'm going to join .Mac, sooner or later.



So,



1. I'll can access to Webmail, iDisk, Homepage, Backup, iCards, Anti-Virus, Support, and so on, as someone says,



2. I'll buy something to the company (and this is not despicable...) that better satisfy my needs and my desires, in terms of computation,



and



3. I'll feel more and more free to tell the "others" that they haven't saw the light, yet? :-)



Best iDotMacs from

    You're a smart man!



    The avg person spends more than .mac at Fast Food joints with nothing to show.



    The issue is some people don't like to pay for something that once was free. I don't blame them...just as I don't blame Apple for current market realities. Enjoy your .mac.

    The cost, for me, is not really the question.



    Apple pulled a bait-and-switch, and I'm not willing to risk myself with their internet services any longer. If they'd asked a fee from the start, fair enough, but what they've done is wrong. It's embarrassing for me to have to tell all the friends that I set up with a mac.com address that they can't use it any more, too. I'll think twice about recommending Apple in future.



    In addition to this, my mac.com email address is the most unreliable I have *ever* had; many, many times (at least weekly) emails have arrived late, anything from a few minutes up to a day. I've not had that happen with any other service. Not impressed.



    And of course, I don't need Backup, or virus software, &c. I just wanted the email, like most other people who signed up for a mac.com address.



    Basically, I can find a service much more reliable at a fraction of the price--and with a domain name--so that's what I'll do.
