.Mac also offers Virus protection (yes, I hear 'but we don't get viruses' - but it's there, and it'd cost about $80/year from Norton). You get a HomePage, which works for quick-n-basic pages of images OR you can create your own (and it's great w/iPhoto); there have been sporadic free software items (some games, StuffIt, etc.), training materials, your account works with iChat (versus getting some 'xgy452289' account w/AIM), and they add services all the time. I do think it'd be nice to 'tier' the services, but at the price of a couple of coffees a month, it's worth it and keeps getting better.

    For me, there is a third party software called Filechute that I use with my .Mac account to send large files (think files too big to email).

    Other service-based solutions charge several hundred dollars a year. In this context, Filechute + .Mac is a pretty inexpensive solution.

    That said, I can see that for many, $99/year is too much.
