MacTech's death spiral
But, I got a new issue in the mail yesterday, and wow! I'd mock it except for the fact that it's showing that MacTech is in real trouble. The kicker? An April Fools article.
I read it, and I came across the QuickTime series, in which Tim Monroe writes QuickTime movie players for many platforms. This month, his article claimed that the iPod is running Mac OS X, and proceeds to write a player, complete with pretty "screen shots". I remember thinking that it was a cute article, but that it was a bit late in the year to be doing that.
Then I looked at the publication date. It's the April 2004 issue.
It arrived mid-June.
Every other single magazine that had an April issue had it out in March. So MacTech is three months behind.
Ow. That hurts.
So long, MacTech. I'll always fondly remember the good old days.
