Apple has added three new exclusive gifts to entice .Mac members in the US. Apple UK has been unable to confirm whether all the latest offerings will extend to .Mac subscribers in the UK.

Joining the .Mac offering are a free copy of the iBlog weblog software (available to UK), a free VersionTracker Plus subscription and a US$30 discount on SmartDisk hard drives purchased through the US Apple Store.

Lifli Software's iBlog ($19.95) is a weblogging application for authoring and publishing personal weblogs to iDisk or .Mac homepages.

VersionTracker Plus ($24.95) provides a custom page for tracking software, a download cart, email alerts, and advanced search functionality.

Apple UK is offering some incentives to drive UK .Mac subscriptions. These include cut-price .Mac membership to people who buy new Macs, and a copy of EverQuest, the Sims or a £13 discount voucher for use in Apple Store, for existing users.
