My best source for accurate Mac info


I’ve been reading this site for the past 10 years. It never has the feel of it’s editorial policy being driven by purchase of X sponsor’s gadgets. I get solutions to problems I didn’t know I had yet.
It’s on my morning Must Read list.

Background music works!


Thanks for fixing the one irritating issue I had with this app. It irked me that my music would stop when I would check TidBITS News.
No longer! Yeah!!

Not vary voiceOver friendly


This app doesn't work very well with VoiceOver. The buttons when you hit the back button are unlabeled. If you like send me an email and I can try to help out.
