Apple’s 08-07-07 Announcement



Of all the rumors flying around tomorrow I am hoping for one thing: an upgrade to dot Mac.

That would that be the only product update that would effect me in the near future, and it’s a much needed update for all us .Mac-ers who’ve been shelling out $99 a year for bookmark syncing and 1GB of IMAP email. Apple obviously could be offering quite a bit more for that $99.

The reason a .Mac upgrade would be so great is because I use two Macs almost equally throughout my day.

My primary computer at my home office is a Quad Core Mac Pro. When not at home I have my PowerBook G4 with me.

I use my PowerBook like a satellite of my Mac Pro. I try as hard as I can to keep them as identical as possible, but it’s not without quite a bit of effort. Seeing some updates to .Mac which would allow smarter file sharing and syncing along with remote access would be a dream come true.

I don’t know how many times I have saved an important file on the wrong computer, and then spent too much time digging around for it, or worse yet I can’t get access to it when I need to.

.Mac has an incredible amount of potential and Apple has an incredible amount of ingenuity. I’m excited to see what they have in store for us, and hopefully it will be like a little mini-Christmas for all of us who pay $99 a year for that dual arrow icon to spin in our toolbar.
