I thought something looked different

CNet: Apple takes on Yahoo with .Mac makeover. When I hit the login page at .Mac today I noticed a different look and feel. The mail client hasn’t been updated, but there’s now a gig of storage by default and there are new group offerings as well (hence the CNet article title).

Will the group offerings dethrone Yahoo? No, but the UI is cleaner than Yahoo Groups, even if the offering isn’t as robust. I’d like to see browsable group listings, for instance, and there’s no way to add a picture to the group from a member’s .Mac Pictures folder. Then again, there’s no integration yet between Yahoo Groups and Flickr, either.
