    I've found this free app called "hamachi" today and found it to be really useful. It's a VPN program that creates a virtual LAN network for multiple macs on internet. Of course, it supports protocol like Bonjour, so you can appletalk, sharing itunes, or iphoto virtually with anyone on internet. The OS X version is still underdeveloped, comparing to the Windows counterpart. Nevertheless, it works fine although it seems to be buggy for Bonjour.

    With this there is really no need for a .mac service (!!!), unless one needs an email account from apple or publishing iweb via apple server. (I still have 9 months membership left, tho :( ) IMO, this could be something to look forward to from the next version of OS X, or even a newer type of service from .mac.

    You guys should try it for yourself. The more people are using it, the more likely this will become big.

    with GUI, which still doesn't look so pretty.
