60 day trial membership to .Mac
Concerning that 60 day trial that came initially with my new Mac, is it possibl to renew it after 60 days?
I've read somewhere that I can do that, or have I mistakely read it wrong?

Hi there.

Do you mean extend it as a "trial" for 60 more days? I suppose you could do that but you would have to start fresh with a new user account. I have not heard of a way to continue for longer than 60 days on a trial basis.

After 60 days, you can become a member for a year for $99.

Hope that helps.

Ah thanks Yankee Rose.

By the way, how can you open up a new user account?

Hi again.

If you go to http://www.apple.com/dotmac/ you will see a circular link to their "Free Trial" and one to "Join Now". It is very straightforward to get their free trial/create an account.

If you are currently a member through their free trial, all you have to do is login and at the top left of the page you'll see your account information and a "Join Now" link.

Hope that helps!

Which comes to mind, what time of internet providers do you, Mac players use on your computers?
Do you use dial up? cable? etc.

How much is satellite? I,seriously, am annoyed with dial up. im looking around for a suitable and cheap internet cable provider or maybe DSL is sounding good.

I use WildBlue - http://www.wildblue.com

It's not cheap, unfortunately. $300 setup/hardware install and then $79 a month for the fastest plan.

Also, what exactly is giving me this connection to the internet?
I read that this 60 Day Trial is not an internet service providerbut something else.

I'm confused. You mentioned earlier in this thread you have dial-up. I would assume that is giving you your internet connection right now?

Oh I see, I apologize for the misinterpretation it has caused you, i meant that my Windows PC uses Dial up, while my Mac has nothing on it.
