    The text here says 10GB, but the image shows 20GB.

    It's obviously changed at some point and someone didn't fix the wording.


    I didn't see it announced anywhere? Is it an older update?

    It's all in how you read the thing. Took me about 10 times to figure it out. The Master account gets basically a carbon copy of what a normal individual account gets(10 Gigs Storage and 100 Gigs transfer). The individual sub-accounts(4 of them) each get their own 2.5 G storage and 25 Gig transfer.

    Apple could definitely do something to clean up that wording a bit so it isn't as confusing.

    Man that's bunk. Apple needs to really pony up some more drive space anyway. I can buy hosting any day of the week with comparable or better (if you use an overseller) for less money.

    You cannot however (that I know of) publish to them with iWeb or use some of the other features such as Back to My mac and whatever else.

    You can publish iWeb to your local disk(and iPhoto Gallery's) and then upload them to another server, but you lose some of the functionality. Blog's won't have comments, no photo reflections, etc.
