Mac Users Please Read...WAY OFF TOPIC

Post by tjwett » Thu Jul 18, 2002 3:30 am

This is a petition to get back the software that used to be free until today, when Apple announced it would now cost us $99 a year. Check it out and sign it if you agree.

ofcourse not. i just think it's important that they don't try to charge us $100 a year for something that was supposed to be "free for life". indeed Apple is pissing alot of people off, me included. i'm very close to giving up on them completely. and i'm a Logic user and i think it sucks what they did.

i totally agree with you . . . $100 is obnoxious. you could register a domain name and get a year of hosting w/multiple pop e-mail accounts and 50MB storage for more or less the same price.

looks like there's an opportunity for adbusters ( http://www.adbusters.org/home/ ) to do an apple.com/switcheroo anti-campaign! :-)

you know it would be great too. adbusters rules! they never run out of ideas. i guess they never will as long as the world keeps churning out crap to make fun of. now i'm gonna buy a copy tomorrow. i'm psyched.

Signed.

I just bought a new MB Pro over the weekend and have been doing the mobile.me trial ever since. I like being able to sync contacts, email, calendars and stuff, but that's really not worth US$100/year. Better to just do it meself, or wait until someone releases an open sourced program that does it for me.

wtf is iTools?

Isn't .mac MobileMe now anyway? I've paid for that service since I got my mac three years ago...

This looks like spam to me.

If you're going to write a petition to the CEO of a global corporation i suggest using someone who can write in English properly. The grammar!! All those commas!!

and wtf is 'backuping'??? I'm sure Steve Jobs takes made up words very seriously indeed.

shameful spamming.

I'll not be signing.
