Apple updates .Mac

As I suspected would happen, Apple are beginning to roll-out integration of their .Mac services with the iPhone - you can now upload photos to a gallery on .Mac directly from the iPhone. Storage limits have been increased significantly as well - now 10GB, and 100GB/month data transfer. While very welcome, it still seems a bit steep to pay US$99 per year for the service (although I do) when there are plenty of free alternatives around!
However, at least iMovie has been updated to enable exporting of movies directly to YouTube!

Another new .Mac feature: "Another new feature of .Mac is the ability to use a personal Web address. A new “Personal Domain” button now appears in users’ .Mac settings windows, and enables you to forward a registered Web site domain directly to a Web site hosted on .Mac."
