.Mac

This panel is of no value unless you’ve signed up for a .Mac account (see Chapter 19). It offers four tabs:

  • Account. This is where you fill in your member name and password for your .Mac account, if you’ve subscribed. (See Chapter 19 for a full discussion of these accounts.) If you’re not yet a member, you can click the Learn More button to get started.

  • Sync, Advanced. Here’s where you tell Tiger which elements of your digital world—calendar, address book, email, and so on—you want synchronized, via the .Mac service, with a cellphone, iPod, Palm organizer, or another Mac. Details on syncing are in Chapter 19.

  • iDisk. The Disk Space graph indicates how full your electronic iDisk is. (And if it approaches your limit of 250 MB, a Buy More button lets you pay Apple for the privilege of gaining more storage.) The Your Public Folder controls let you specify whether or not other people are allowed to put new files into your Public folder (The Shared Folder), and whether or not outsiders need a password to see what’s in your Public folder. There’s much more detail on these topics in Chapter 19.
