MacsimumNews

Macsimum News is now a part of MacNews.com.

MacNews packs in so much more in the way of features and information. Please take a moment to read through the below so that you don't miss what could quite possibly be your favorite new way to use the site.

AppleCentral (the publishers of MacTech Magazine, MacNews, and MacForge) acquired the "Macsimum News" site back in February 2010, and Dennis Sellers has been working on both MacNews and MacsimumNews since then as we prepared to merge the sites. All of Macsimum's content has moved to be part of the MacNews archives -- and the old URLs articles will take you to the right place on MacNews.

MacNews now has over 70,000 articles in its archives. Its 14 year heritage comes not only from MacNews and the six years of articles from MacsimumNews, but also all the archives from MacTech News, AppleCentral, MacMinute, MacMod, and macCompanion.

Owned by Xplain Corporation, AppleCentral is the umbrella brand for MacTech Magazine, MacTech.com, MacNews.com, and MacForge.net (open source on the Mac). MacNews is general Apple news and information, while MacTech is for the technical community.

"I'm excited about the change," says Dennis Sellers, founder, publisher and chief macsimizer at Macsimum News. "I'll serve as an editor at AppleCentral focusing primarily on MacNews. I've been a contributing writer for 'MacTech' since long before this change. I've known and worked with Neil Tickin, editor-in-chief and publisher of MacTech for years. The AppleCentral group of MacNews, MacTech, and MacForge is a great fit. The acquisition gives me more time to do what I really like doing -- concentrating on writing, reviews and editorial content.

The 24/7 news, reviews, opinion pieces and Migration Kits (which have been redubbed 'Category Reviews' that have become staples of 'Macsimum News' will continue.

If you like 'Macsimum News,' you'll love 'MacNews'," Sellers says. "All the elements and features of 'Macsimum' will continue under the new name, as well as lots of other great, new features."
