  1. Apple have changed their web-based email appearence a bit. Also I found that you can now use Mozilla on a PC to check mail. Previously I had been limited to internet exploder.

  2. Just increase the size of the iDisk, please! For the price, 100 MB is tiny. Also as a photographer, not being able to email photos using .mac without limiting the emails to one photo for each email is a pain. I would expect that for a free or complementary email service, but this is a paid service!
    Improve the service, don’t just offer promo discounts for other software.

  3. They did just add the black background with white type for photo homepages, way to go! Thanks Apple!!!
    now about the iDisk size. . .
