Apple’s .Mac Unveils Paid Web

Apple’s .Mac Unveils Paid Web Services: Not directly related to content, but Apple has unveiled an online suite called .Mac. For an annual fee of $99, customers can use Apple’s servers to post personal Web pages, open e-mail accounts and store files. The company also is moving into new areas, such as selling movie tickets through its revamped Sherlock 3 search engine.

Apple could eventually shift more of its software to the paid subscription model, including, for example, potential upgrades to the Mac operating system.
