I have to say, these type of online address books are great. Synchronizing all your e-mail, contacts and documents makes traveling a lot easier. Unfortunately, a lot of programs take tons of user intervention just to get everything synched correctly. It should be done every time your computer goes idle or comes back from sleep, one of those simple conveniences that apple does so well.

Web-based Address Book and more coming soon.

Future .Mac integration with Mac OS X/iApps, as well as new features have been expected from Apple.
The power page link is broken.

I am not sure what this online address book is supposed to be. .Mac currently has an web based address book of just e-mails. It doesnt sync with anything. One of my great frustrations is with iCards, you have to manually enter e-mail addresses, even if you are a member. I wish that I could send icards to anyone in my address book very easily.

I'm guessing the final version of iSync will sync the two things with the .Mac tab, much like iSync does right now for the Palm (not really the iPod, because you can't change them on the fly on the iPod, so there's nothing to sync back to the Mac)

Speaking of iSynch...

... Anyone know when iSynch is supposed to be released? (final version - no beta)

Feedback

Funny, when WebMail was still in beta testing you could give them feedback.

I said that it would be cool if you could sync your OS X Address Book online so you take your contacts with you.

I'm sure I'm not the only one.

I got no objection, it would help,if your away from your computer then it would rock.

But who here would use it, all my friends have PC and I'm not realy interested in looking at my address book online, but it may come in handy to others.

Joking right? It should have been synch-able from the start I reckon. Don't know why it's taken so long.
I don't like carrying a PDA around, and I still don't have a phone that will carry addresses and multiple email addresses around with it so this is very welcome.
