With the deadline fast approaching, former iTools users who have yet to subscribe to .Mac for the introductory price of $49.95 are receiving emails from The Mothership. Here it is in its entirety:
Dear .Mac trial member,
Your .Mac account will expire on September 30, 2002. If you don’t sign up ( https://www.mac.com/WebObjects/Signup.woa/wa/upgrade?aff=consumer&cty=US&lang=en ) for full membership, which you can still do at the special former iTools member price of US$49.95, that is the last day you’ll be able access your Mac.com Email account, home pages and iDisk.
We hope you won’t let that happen. .Mac comes with improved versions of what was already great about iTools, like first-rate, web-accessible, ISP-independent Mac.com Email, and tight integration between iPhoto and HomePage publishing. It also delivers important new features like McAfee’s Virex virus protection software, Backup software from Apple, and calendar publishing from iCal. And continual improvement is built into its DNA.
The future of power and convenience through connected computing is bright, and .Mac is leading the way–just ask the more than 100,000 members who’ve already signed up. At only US$49.95 for the first year, the price is amazingly low and the value of the benefits is already remarkably high and heading higher. Join us today ( https://www.mac.com/WebObjects/Signup.woa/wa/upgrade?aff=consumer&cty=US&lang=en ).
