Section two: .Mac apps

.Mac (pronounced “dot Mac”) is a collection of tools and services that are available when you subscribe to a one-year .Mac membership for $99.95. A .Mac membership includes 250 megabytes of combined email and iDisk storage. There's also a .Mac Family Pack available ($179.95/year) that includes one full .Mac membership with a combined 250 megabytes of email and iDisk storage, four .Mac sub-accounts with 100 megabytes of combined email and iDisk storage, and a shared iDisk folder for you and your family. For most people, the value of a .Mac membership far exceeds the price tag.

The software and services included in a .Mac membership are explained in this section: An email account with “mac.com” address; webMail for access to your email account and Address Book from any Mac or PC in the world; .Mac Bookmarks for accessing your favorite web sites from any computer; iDisk storage, 250 megabytes of email and personal storage space on Apple's servers; HomePage, web-based software for creating and publishing web pages; iSync to synchronize Address Book and iCal calendar information between multiple computers; Backup software to archive important files to your computer, to removable discs, or to your iDisk; iCards (electronic greeting cards) using your own photos; and more. Membership also gives you access to a members-only technical support service, free software, and other perks.
