I was looking at getting one but for £70 a year is it worth it?
I guess that depends on what you want / need...
I've got a .Mac Account, and I'm very pleased with it. Use it as my main email address (synced across three Macs and an iPod touch), hosting a website (well, it will be soon), syncing calendars and files across Macs, Back to my Mac, and screen-sharing.
That being said, I know there are better and cheaper alternatives out there. But, for what it's worth, I've never had a problem with .Mac.
Can you use the email functions on it with your own domain?
So instead of firstname.lastname@example.org I could have email@example.com ? Just hosted on the .mac?
Try the free trial and see what you think.
Well, it is a nice but very expensive email address with some aliases
As a sync tool it works well if you have a few Apple devices.
As a storage facility? If you are not in the USA it is truly awful.
Apple will not acknowledge there is a problem with .Mac outside the USA.
What is the problem outside the US ?
Absolutely slow as s*** apparently, virtually unusable, errors uploading etc.
If you want your own domain e-mail hosted by someone else use the free, and better, Google Apps.
Slooow uploads that hang your computer.
If you try to upload a largish eek: ) file say anything above 10MB you face a very flaky connection and may have to reboot your Mac just to get rid of the spinning iDisk connection.
In a word: Crap!
I would not use a mac without .mac
I have the family pack. At $179 it is overpriced. I don't need to synch macs. I don't need the email addresses. Otherwise I might be interested in using the storage for showing my photos, but every time I try to access the one library I've put up it seems slow as molasses in January.
I've had mine for about 4 or 5 years and really like it, they made some great improvements over the years.
