Heidi Ho & Mac OS 8 Article

Editor:

The “Heidi Ho!” article in your August 1996 issue says that, according to Heidi Roizen, the new Developer Marketing group at Apple includes develop, Apple’s technical journal. Although this was the original plan (over a month ago), develop has actually been placed in the Technology Services Group along with the others on the “technical side of the equation.” I’d hate your readers to think develop has become a marketing mag!

Your August issue also includes a “Mac OS 8 Checklist” article by Steve Kiene that bears a strong resemblance to the article “Planning for Mac OS 8 Compatibility” by Steve Falkenburg in develop’s June issue. It’s great that MacTech is helping to get this important information out to developers, but if in fact you drew a lot of the information from the develop article, we’d appreciate your mentioning this.

Thanks,

Caroline Rose

Editor of develop

With the dearth of information currently available today on Mac OS 8, and especially in light of the announcments at Macworld Boston, it’s difficult to know what to do about covering the future of the Macintosh OS. We assigned Steve Kiene a story on Mac OS 8, and the only thing he could effectively write about was how to prepare for the future - what to do and what not to do. Both articles offer insights into preparing for Mac OS 8, and I recommend readers investigate in Mac OS as best as they can, including reading Steve Falkenburg’s article at http://devworld.apple.com/dev/techsupport/develop/issue26/falkenburg.html. - ed/wgi
