Just behind you
Today I signed up for the free trial od .Mac (I am a recent Mac Switcher)

I have played a bit with iSync and iDisk. It looks very smooth to me.

What do you think about .Mac?
There were many rumors concerning a Google partnership. Do you think it's gonna lead anywhere?

I use my .Mac account to keep a number of things (iCal events, AddressBook contacts, Mail accounts and settings, etc) standard between my three machine. This service also makes it very simple to move files from one machine to another (i.e. home & office machines). Just drag the files to your public folder, allow the service to sync, and start up the other machine. Once it syncs, the files will be ready to access. I had my company buy me the most space possible, which makes large file transfers painless; you may want to upgrade your storage for this very reason. I know there are other services out there that do the same thing. Just like most things Apple, you are paying extra for convenience with .Mac.

Il est difficile d'éprouver la valeur de cette service sans s'y être inscrit pendant des ans comme moi. J'espère que je vous ai aidé.

It has always seemed a very expensive privilege to me, as you could get nearly everything on offer for free in other places. .mac does give them all to you all in one place however, and that's inside mac os X- nice. It also gives you the bonus of having an address or five- sweet.

My boss pays for mine. Sucker. :eek:

i have .mac and i think its pretty good. The e-mail is good and the idisk isn't bad but sometimes a bit slow.

But overall i think i will pay again for next year :):apple:

In response to your title question, "Do you use .Mac?", no I don't. It does have features that look good, but I use for basic web and email hosting because I want my own domain name. I can take my name and email addresses to another host if I choose and my website and email addresses won't change.
