    It's an online storage that comes with an email address.

    You were able to Sync Calendar, Contacts, Bookmarks, Photos, etc. You could make greeting cards. You got a homepage (though not a custom URL).

    All in all, you got 10 GB of storage unless you paid more.

    The base price is $99 per year.

    .mac is no more - so really there's no point in telling u what it DID do, but direct you to mobileme to tell you what this does:

    You mean what WAS it about and what DID it do!

    It was a software as a service which kept a persons macs in sync and allowed the person to view his contacts, mail and picture gallery online. It also provided 10gigs of online space for you to backup/share or do whatever you want with you data! It also allowed the person to set up his own website under the domain web.mac.com/username!

    Now its MobileMe and you can find more info here
