    OS 10.2 is now available. It has a lot of new features, and appears to have been worth the wait.
    OSX.2 Jaguar
    On the other hand, Apple has once again let their greed show. I've been using iTools for a long time, and use mac.com as my main email. Now they've changed "iTools" to ".mac", and now are charging cash for it. The price is $99 a year, or 50% off of that if you are an existing iTools user. Those morons think I'm going to pay $50 a year when everyone else under the sun offers email accounts for free?
    Ahhh, but you say that ".mac" is much more than just an email account. Well, yes, there are other features, but have you tried them? IMO, they're cheezy and useless.
    Apple has "generously" given us iTools users 90 days to pay up or clear out. Well ... ^#$% THEM. I'm going to transfer the emails that I want to keep and close it down. I'm not paying $50 for the "prestige" of having a "@mac.com" email addy.
    Fuckin greedy bastards!

    Yup, looks like it's time for your new Mac, Chris. If you read the fine print, it says that it can't be used on G3s with processor upgrades ... DOHHH!

    That's obvious..you hate Apple so much you're lurking the Mac section of these boards...hmmmmmmm

    Remember people you all wouldn't mind selling your music ..but you're not going to take heavy losses to do so. Should Apple sacrafice themselves for the sake of you having free email? They never guaranteed that iTools would be free forever and many Mac users aren't giving them a chance to earn your business. At any rate the choice is yours.

    The point is that anyone can get all of the free email accounts that they want. So what does Apple think makes them so high and mighty that people should pay them to have a friggin email? Gimme a break here! There are plenty of "made for Mac" companies that Apple could get to advertise to foot the bill. But nooooo, Apple goes straight for the Mac owners' pocket! What else is new ...
