When .Mac went down for “maintenance” this evening it seemed all too suspicious …a Mac Expo in Paris, a Tuesday morning fast approaching (the time Apple tends to make announcements) and then .Mac went dark…something was up.
Well, .Mac has come out from the darkness with 1GB of storage (2GB in a Family Pack). All that space would make a handy place to back up your files and Apple has also posted an updated to its Backup utility. Its got one-step iLife backups, Spotlight integration, schedules and ways to share files automatically between all your Macs.
There are also .Mac Groups that allow you to share photos, make announcements, share calendars, search member lists, and post messages.
All the new stuff is instantly available to current .Mac subscribers and new subscriptions are going for USD$99.95/year or USD$179.95/year for a Family Pack.
Just a note for all you people who subscribed to the 1GB .Mac before today: your account has been upgraded to one with 2GB of storage.
