It's not great. iTools wasn't either. But dot Mac was the WORST. Very Microsoft: a rip-off of .NET.<br><br>nagr[color:red]o</font color=red>mme<br><br>I require stroyent!<br>TeamMacOSX.com | MacClan.net
SwatPussy you would look very good in Pink so don't knock it - just kidding<br><br>Anyway;<br>This moniker change from Mac anything , I bet that now Apple has gotten into the PC world with a half of foot into shiit - makes sense to me that Apple is dropping the Mac moniker for services and going with a more PC type garbage naming. After all if you are a hard core MS kind of "lemon-aid" priick ya not going to buy an iPhone that is tied to a .MAC service , this would send the wrong single to your PC loving friends <br><br>Bottom line;<br>I can see Apple appealing to the younger crowds like high school kids and wannabe switchers are not forced into saying a "Mac" word sorta kinda you know what I mean. I bet Apple will eventually will phase out the MAC naming conviction in a few years.<br><br>
I don't mind the "MobileMe" moniker so much as the $99 price tag. I love the simplicity of MobileMe, always have. And I suppose with the huge increase in storage space, the price isn't nearly as out-of-line as it used to be.<br><br>I'll probably check it out in the future.<br><br>

TOTALLY AGREE. TOTALLY, man!!!<br><br>HATE the name. and the changing t-shirts at the store, puh-leez.<br>i HATE seeing apple go all macdonaldsy on me.<br><br>c'mon, steve. pay attention to what they're doing. too many mid-level folks without enough to do - "I know!! NEW t-shirts!!! even ORANGE ones!!! it'll be soooo colorful!!!" ughhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh<br><br>
I did the math a long time ago. I used to have my old G4 PowerMac serving up my website and a personal photo gallery ...until I actually did a bit of research on how much it costs to keep your PC running 24/7. Over the course of a year it cost me more to run my own server than to get .Mac. (Especially with the Amazon.com discount.) <br><br>It was an easy decision for me to go with the full Apple package after I found that out. <br><br>On that note, I just got an email today saying that I'm 1 month away from needing to re-up my subscription. Guess I'll be going to Amazon to get me a new mobileme box. Unfortunately the prices went back up now. Looks like I'm only going to save $10 this time instead of $20. Oh well.<br><br>zweisoft<br>
