So it’s once again time to bring out my credit card and renew the ol’ .Mac account. While there have been few major feature upgrades this year (as compared to last year), the Tiger Preview makes it sound like there is quite a bit of emphasis on .Mac in the next iteration of the Mac OS. Apparently, Apple has opened up the syncing features of .Mac to developers. I can only imagine the next version of apps that’ll support it.
Thus, this time around, I’m renewing on the hope of new features. I did notice one great new feature in my .Mac Webmail. I don’t know if this was added at some point and slipped by me, but you can create aliases for your .Mac email address. A great way to create a temporary, throw-away address for registering on that questionable web site. A nice little extra. Plus it’s nice to get all the little .Mac freebies throughout the year. Discounts, games, and other goodies definitely help me get more out of my hundred bucks.
And, well, let’s face it: there’s just something cool about being @mac.com. Fanboys unite!
Gonna renew this year?
