Good article, I like how you've emphasised the services aspect of .mac. Because the interlinking of OS X and iApps is their only real value proposition.
I did some research comparing .mac to my ISP and three random webhosting services (,,
As you can see .mac is not in the same league as actuall hosting services. It hardly offers any advantages over my ISP, which I have to pay for.
I think Apple has a lot to deliver in the next year if they want a decent renewal rate.
