    My .Mac account is up at the end of the month, and I'm trying to convince myself it's worth the $110.

    All I really use it for is to publish my webpage with vacation pictures. I need about 100 MB of space.

    I don't use it for backup or for mail.

    Is there anything out there that is more economical than .Mac?

    Duff-Man says....Number one - maybe search the forums as there are lots of .mac threads around. Number two...it does not have to cost you $99 (or whatever...with the taxes added)....look at the retail boxes from Amazon and other online sellers - you can save $25 or more almost all of the time. Number three - there have been lots of rumours lately of new .Mac improvements - maybe check them out (although reliability of rumours is..well....you know...) and see if any of the rumours make it more attractive for you.....oh yeah!

    .Mac is great is you have multiple Macs. It makes it easier to sync documents, contacts and calendars between them. If you don't do this, then there are other services out there that can do what .Mac does for free or less cost. As long as you have a space on some webserver out there, i believe you can still use iPhoto to upload the photo albums you make.
