.Mac Services Overpriced Concerns sign now

We, the undersigned, are signing to make sure that our voices be heard against Apple's proposed "upgrades" to the .mac service (formally known as iTools).
The services for which Apple is charging are highly overpriced and not worth it.

Virus Protection is almost unnecessary on the Mac, and McAffe is much inferior and more expensive then other Virus protection ((such as VirusBarrier from Intego software))

The Other services are not much better either, Tech Support for iTools is unnecessary as it seems that it works well, most of us Mac users don't need back up software, we can do it all through backuping our home folder (/~/) minus the library,

Our significant worry is the loss of our email address. Most of us have embraced what we feel to be the best email service around in iTools (.mac) and have distrubuted our email addresses around, we feel that by making us pay for these services .Mac is no longer useful at its price point.

What We Want: We want the price to be lowered overall for all subscribers, perhaps by 50\% or more (($25 for previous iTools subscribers, $50 for brand new customers)), it should come free with every Mac purchased. We also want you to continue to make the .Mac email free. At least for those of us who already have a iTools email addresses.

Why do we want this: Because we love the Mac and see the potential in the .Mac services.

And as we were once told..."It will be free for life"

To quote a user's response after hearing the new price point for .Mac
"Hello. I'm a happy Apple customer but this latest .Mac service has me disappointed. You're charging money for email when yahoo.com email is still free, hotmail.com is still free, and others. We, Mac users, were told this would be free for life. This is an outrage."
