While Google is busy trying to allay fears that their free 1GB mail service is too intrusive, SpyMac has already implemented it. And without the content scanning and advertising that Google is planning!
Spymac’s free membership includes: 1 GB e-mail account, 350 MB combined storage, personal blog, forum, gallery, auctions and more
Membership is completely free (no strings attached) and includes an unsurpassed suite of services tailored for Mac users:
– 100 megabytes of free web space (complete with FTP and WebDAV access)
– Free e-mail account with 25 megabytes of storage (includes both POP3 and Web access)
– 250 megabytes of free storage in Spymac’s patent-pending Gallery
What’s more, each member gets an individual blog, unlimited iCal publishing and access to exclusive deals on leading Mac OS X software.
What’s the catch? Well, I haven’t quite figured that out yet. The service seems to be tailored to Mac users, but I haven’t seen anything yet that would prevent others from using it. The site design is a bit on the busy side, but that’s tolerable. I’m sold. And registered.
