MacNN (no link for reasons which will become obvious) is now gifting me with pop under ads. You know what my biggest problem with pop unders is? It’s the not the advertising, although I do find that annoying. It’s that Internet Explorer for the Mac decides to use the dimensions of the pop under window for next new browser window. That’s infuriating. I guess I’m done with MacNN.
That’s a shame, really. Macintouch isn’t what it used to be, either. Their turning point was the day Ric posted his infamous “Monopoly” editorial on the front page, drawing the ire of Steve Jobs and countless devoted readers.
So where is one to go for good Mac-oriented news? There’s MacSlash, but they’re busy trying to be SlashDot. Once upon a time you could even get good dirt from MacOSRumors, but I think they need to change their name to reflect the fact that only post the painfully obvious, and only after it has already happened. If I were one of his paying subscribers, I’d be pretty pissed. O’Grady is a shadow of what it once was. The commercial Mac rags are horrible.
What’s a guy have to do to get some Mac news? Apple Hot News?
