thats less than 9% of original accounts. OK, I'll grant a lot of people had multiple accounts, so the percentage is probably a good bit higher, but I don't know that its a phenomenal sucess. But good for apple if its a steady revenue stream. We'll just have to see how many renew when it costs 100 bucks. I'm really hoping apple makes it a lot more compelling, lowers the price, and/or doesn't tie too much of what they do to having a .mac account.Originally posted by bellboy
According to Mac Central, .Mac has been a "phenomenal success", with subsriptions now reaching 180,000!
I think that the 2 million (or however many) original users of iTools probably just signed up when they got thier new mac, and then never touched the service again. I know my dad did that. What we might be seeing here are the number of people who actually used the service rather than just having an account.Originally posted by strider42

i'm in NJ and PA and .mac is working fine for me and my family. we'll most likely continue to pay for 2 subscriptions even when it becomes $99.Originally posted by Indigo_iBook
I don't think .Mac is that slow (Yes, I'm a proud .Mac-member).
Actually, since the day I started running Jaguar (MacOS 10.2) it really got faster. My iDisk is on my desktop is seconds. For the record: I'm in Europe, not the US. Anyone else have the same experience?

I love .mac, it is great. although i got mine free. don't know if i would have bought it if i didnt get it free. does anyone know if i can have my email from the mail.app forward all my email on my main account to my .mac email address so i can check my mail on the web. if i could do that .mac would really be worth it, or at least to me. please let me know if this is possible or if there are any other email clients that can do this, i also have entourage. if you are wondering how i got it free it is because learn and earn members get it free in case anyone was wondering.
