Nope, I dont think its worth it. And if I ever change my mind, there are cheaper alternatives.

Should be a free service for all mac users. I liked the service during the trial but paying for it wasn't worth it.

I do, but only since I started using .Mac back when it was "free for life" (thanks a lot, Jobso), and it was a pain in the neck to migrate my email address and inform all my clients.

However, when mine expires in September, I'm not renewing it.

Good concept, but not enough value for me.

I used the 60 day free trial, but have never renewed my subscription.

I did at one time, but canceled. I think Apple should make .Mac free again.

I miss it a bit, because it worked so easily with Mail, made life so easy. I didn't get a chance to use the webspace.

Please Apple make it freeeeeeeee... Sad

I subscribe to it, since I use iDisk and the email address is one I've used since the beginning.

I have it, but only because my friend got a deal on eBay. I doubt that I will renew once the year is up.

I don't think it's space value is worth it at all. I haven't tried it at all (Though I should since there is a free trial...)
