    i bought .mac with my new computer. but i'm pretty sure i get a 30 day trial with the new computer, so do I get to use the 30 days then enter my .Mac access code, or is the 1-year of .Mac from when I ordered .mac

    cliffs can i get my free 30 days + 12 months or do I only get 12 months from when i purchase .mac

    i think you get a 60 day trial first, and if it's just a code that you bought you can enter that in when the trial is up :dunno:

    it really isnt worth it. Get a dreamhost account and never have to worry about bandwidth or storage space again

    I have other webspace, but keeping two macs in sync is just really easy with .mac - bookmark syncing, back to my back, etc.

    plus, it was only $70 with purchace of a new computer. and now that they've upped it to 10gb storage space that should give me plenty.

    Yea, it's more for keeping teh macs in sync, plus a proper IMAP email account is nice, one-click web galleries from iPhoto, etc...

    Oh yeah, what else can I do to synch my shit besides .mac?

    I don't want to pay for anther year if all I do is synch my shit. Even though it's awesome, I don't think it's 70-100 a year awesome.

    Suck my balls, every computer should be able to do this, we're not children, below me.
