I've signed up for the trial of .Mac. The only feature I want is the offsite backup, which can be done via iDisk and the Backup program. If my Mac gets stolen then I have some protection. A quick search of the web shows that lots of people are dissatisfied with .Mac. Most of the gripes centre around the services being available for free elsewhere, and the high price. In the UK where I am it's £70 -- around $140! That said, it's still cheaper than paying a monthly fee for offsite backup. Additionally, some of the offsite backup services look pretty disreputable. But what will the future of .Mac be? I've got until mid-April to pay-up. Bearing in mind that Leopard might be launched before then, complete with its own backup software, is it likely that .Mac will be radically altered in some way, or that it will have a price drop?
