R.I.P. .Mac

This week sadly sees the end of the troubled .Mac service that Apple's been providing since the days of iTools. It's had it's problems along the way and many have complained about speeds issues or the subscription fee. But i've always loved .Mac and it's been a fantastic service to me.

There's more to the new .me (urgh i hate that name!) than meets the eye. It's .Mac on steroids and comes with a whole host of cool features while still retaining the current ones.

Well, most anyhow. There's a few features that will be missing such as iCards & Web Bookmarks. I really cannot understand Apple sometimes..

I'm looking forward to trying out the new features, especially when I get an iPhone (maybe next year sometime). Until then I cannot forgive Apple for loosing the web bookmarks that's been incredibly useful over the years!

At least I'll keep my " .mac " email address ! haha
