My wife’s .Mac subscription is due in a month.
Despite rave reviews like this recent one in the Times Record (“The best $8.25 you’ll spend this month”), I wonder if .Mac is still good value for money.
For less than half the price, USD 40, I can get a 2GB IMAP account and 1GB of WebDAV file space at Fastmail. Other providers no doubt provide deals that are just as good.
iWeb, Groups and other features are things my wife and I never use.
The only reason I can see for renewing her subscription is to show support for a great company.
Perhaps “value for money” is not the right way to think about it. It’s about belonging. It’s a tribal thing, not a financial decision.
