.mac icard

Well, thanks for keeping up with the Joneses…As for me i have been in the midwest, primarily in Northern Minnesota with a group of people from Chicago and those that are from, Minnie-soh-ta, god love ‘em.And so how did I celebrate after all these travels, with Apple’s new mac gallery of course! And what did i Think? It needs major improvement of course!in fact, it is pretty much flawed. iSee that Apple fixed a bug in the iWeb suite for iLife ‘08… cool, now fix the 10 gigabyte web gallery please. here are some pros and cons of a service i generally like, but don’t know if it is even as good as Flickr, and certainly not for the price.Ok, the first thing you have to know about Apple websites is that they are S.L..O…W…. They load slow, they act slow, they are SLOW. So what would make you think anything different with the web gallery? Exactly. It is slow. In fact, for a $99.00 hosting service you would expect something like 250 megabytes of storage and your pages to load lick-i-ty-split. Not .mac – it’s got a slow game. I would hesitate to even call is something as cool as dot mac, its more like dot kinda got some game sometimes but not quite like a mac, which i suppose is much to long of a domain name. ( ICANN maxes out after 28 letters no?) iDigress.I found iWeb to be a better loading service than dot mac web gallery. The transitions are much smoother, you can add music, a header caption, but most of all it is the editing that is far superior on the iWeb page creator than the dot mac gallery. Why?The dot mac web gallery is subject to constant updating. So when you move a photo, your graphics card, memory, processor are all thinking at the same time as the internet is trying to adjust your collection. It’s a pain. See in iWeb you do what you want and then publish. presto, great, its’ so easy. in dot mac, you don’t have a blueprint mode, it is all live. And further more, even though Steve Jobs claimed it was just like on your desktop, nope. Dot mac is slow, and moving pictures around after a few pictures seems to wreak (sp?) havoc on the dot mac server. iWeb is superior, cleaner, quicker, and overall a service that already fits the needs of a consumer.Some Advantages:email friends* (yet not easy to pull from address book in my exp)change views* (mosaic is nice, but you can move pictures around there, the coverflow version is somewhat useless and to reiterate, the slideslow sux. (see below)Events Categorization* (This is cool, however I couldn’t for the life of me select the top photo. in iPhoto it is very easy, spacebar, bam! In the dot mac web gallery i had issues with this, i tried logging in to dot mac, used iPhoto, everything, please send me the way to do this if you know how.)Disadvantages: $99.00 for another service when Flickr IS superior. Really, i’m pretty disappointed with the flexibility of the web gallery. In thoery it is a great edition to doc mac, but you read my concerns and please help email me or Apple with solutions, but their is one MAJOR issue that matters more than all the user-ability combined.The dot mac security features are flawed.How? They;re aren’t any that i can find. Meaning, I would LOVE to show everyone my pictures with a code or something, but can’t i just have to post things away and then run into facebook, myspace, and social networking security issues once i throw my life up on the web. This is the largest issue of all, password protection and more exclusivity. If there is a way to do this with both .mac, iWeb, or anything in the iLife suite plese email me. And if you would like to see the difference between a wild wedding two weeks ago and wild weekend in the Minnesota Northwoods, just email me and i will let you compare them personally. Unfortunately i can’t just throw them up, because Apple has a lot to work on with the dot mac gallery, speed, ease-of-use, and security.
