Chapter 1. Getting Started

Chapter 1. Getting Started

Back at the turn of the millennium, Apple came out with a suite of Internet tools called iTools. This suite consisted of a mac.come-mail address as well as KidSafe (a filter for child-friendly Web sites), HomePage (an easy-to-use tool for building Web sites), and iDisk (online storage that was accessible using just about any Internet connection). Apple's Internet strategy basically boiled down to a nifty set of Mac-only tools meant to make Mac users' lives a little easier.

Fast-forward five years. The tools are no longer free and the name has changed—iTools now goes by .Mac—but the goal remains the same: make Mac users' lives easier. With a “mac.com” e-mail address, iDisk, and HomePage still at its core, .Mac now also includes tight integration with Mac OS X, as well as a host of other features, all for just $99 a year.
