Chapter 5. Using .Mac Sync

Chapter 5. Using .Mac Sync

Not only does your .Mac account provide a great ad-free e-mail address, online storage, and the ability to whip up Web pages in a flash, but it also serves as a repository for your personal information—your Safari bookmarks, contacts, calendars, Mail accounts, Mail rules, and keychains (which hold your passwords for various accounts).

There are two great things about this: The first is that when you synchronize these items to your .Mac account, that infor-mation can be synchronized with other Macs, so that copying the items to other Macintosh computers is as easy as entering your account information and clicking a button. The second great thing about this is that you can access some of this key information (such as your contacts and Safari bookmarks) from just about any computer with a Web browser and an Internet connection. And, with a little cleverness, you can easily copy your information to a cell phone, iPod, or Palm PDA.
