This is a copy of an email I sent Apple earlier today:
Dear .Mac Team,
It’s been slow on the .Mac improvement front lately, except for the pretty facelift. My email still loses sent emails, and I have not received any response regarding that after 2 months. It only took 3 months to resolve an issue with iSync that was on the server side. Not bad for $100 a year.
I’ve pasted below a very friendly email from Microsoft regarding my free Hotmail account. I hope to see some improvement in .Mac soon. Renewal time is approaching you know…
For once, I wish .Mac would actually pull through and offer something resembling value for my money instead of expecting me to prop up Apple’s stock price by shoveling sub-par services to the Mac faithful.
