.Mac HomePages Will Become Permanent Time Capsules of July 7, 2009

Apple is discontinuing .Mac HomePages, but the way they're doing it is neat for its potential historicity: You have until July 7 to edit the homepage, after which will it remain frozen forever, like a time capsule on the internet.

This is an email they're sending out to MobileMe members:

Dear MobileMe member:

On July 7, 2009, the .Mac HomePage web application will be discontinued. As of this date, you will no longer be able to create new pages or edit existing pages using HomePage. Any pages you've already published will remain live at their current web address for as long as you like. If you need to make changes to your existing pages, please do so before July 7.

Instead of HomePage, we recommend the other sharing features of your MobileMe membership. With MobileMe Gallery, you can share photos online directly from iPhoto or the web application atwww.me.com. And using iWeb on your Mac, you can create custom websites and blogs and publish them to MobileMe.

We apologize for any inconvenience this change may cause. For more information, please read this FAQ. And thank you for being a MobileMe member.
