ArsTechnica has an article that discusses the writers experience with .Mac and his plea to developers to stop integrating it into their software.<br><br>When I finally gave up on .Mac, my only concern was finding a replacement for the simple photo album service. Apple kind of killed it when they took it out of iPhoto and replaced it with iWeb. The strange thing is, iWeb is what I finally settled on using, but without the .Mac service.<br><br>I have to agree that it's time for Apple to "sh!t or get off the pot" with .Mac. The service is slow, and obscenely overpriced.<br><br>CreativeGuy for daily tips, tricks and commentary on all things graphic design.

That article is only one whiners opinion. The majority of .Mac subscribers are quite pleased. Of course, you never here or read of them lauding the service. Only the few complaints make it out to the public.<br><br>.Mac RULES!!!<br><br>- alec -
Can't say I recognize any of the symptoms that the guy reports. My iDisk mounts very quickly. The uploads are quick, as are the downloads. My email has been down maybe once or twice, briefly, in the last couple of years. It's expensive, that's true, especially if you buy retail from Apple. But for me, anyway, the ease of use and integration into so many Apple apps makes the cost worth it.<br><br>____________________________________________________<br>Bliss was it in that dawn to be alive,<br>But to be young was very heaven!

And I don't recall a time my email was ever down. The way I look at it it costs me 21¢ a day. Big woop. A lot of people spend more than that for a daily newspaper. <br><br>
No complaints here either. I use Transit to upload and manage all my sites. Fast, convenient and easy does it! I shop for the special prices each year. Wonder what Sean thinks is going to happen with .mac first of the year? Hmmmmmm . . . <br><br><br><br>
Ditto. And like Kate mentioned, if you use Transmit, you don't even have to mount the iDisk on you desktop. Very quick. Even faster to access it via your browser: http://idisk.mac.com/username?view=web<br><br>
