Long-lived and respected Macintosh
magazine, with an attitude
halfway between the colorful and often childish light-heartedness of MacAddict
and the cold seriousness of holier-than-thou MacWorld
. Featured the best Mac columnists
, including Andy Ihnatko
and Bob LeVitus
, and the most informative articles for both Mac
novices and experts.
Died in October 1997, when it merged with MacWorld. The results are a slightly more user-friendly (but less significant) MacWorld and a big hole in the Mac magazine world. The diaspora of talent means that there is no longer a one-stop shop for all of a Mac user's computer interests, in either a magazine or on the web. MacNN is the closest it gets.
