    Outdated pricing

    The unfortunate problem about this book is that, through no fault of the author, certain crucial portions are now utterly outdated. These are the passages describing the email offerings in .Mac and their prices. For example, the cost of getting an extra 25 Mb of email space is listed at $10/year, or for an extra 200 Mb, it is $90/year. Well, ever since Google announced trial gmail accounts with a free 1 Gb, the email business has been radically altered. In response to Google, Yahoo now offers 200 Mb free. Hotmail will soon offer 250 Mb free. So why pay Apply $90/year? On a related note, the book describes iDisk, where for an extra 200 Mb, you pay $60/year. Again, why? Now, I realise iDisk gives an ability to store and use arbitrary files, and this is more general than email. Plus, iDisk has neat features that increase its value. Even so, the new email price points will inevitably force Apple to reprice iDisk, as enough people make a simple, and essentially correct, comparison to email pricing. The upside for the book is that while the above sections are now outdated, if Apple freshens the pricing, then the rest of the book becomes far more attractive. (Moore's Law is working for you!) But only on this proviso.
