Macweek Ressurrected!?

How many of you remember the paper edition of MacWeek magazine? If you do, you're getting old. :)

I saw this site referenced somewhere and got excited, thinking MacPublishing was bringing the old venerated (and hated) MacWeek name back. But, when i go to the site, I saw that they were using WordPress and it didn't look anything like the other MacPublishing products.

After investigating further (actually, spending about 60 more seconds on the site), I figured the site was run by a couple of kids and will be taken down......oh.....let's say before the weekend is out. :)

But it brings up a couple of points. One is that there is an entire "generation" of Mac users who have no clue about the "Good Old Days" and two, if you're going to use a particular obvious name, at least do a Google search to make sure someone else doesn't own it. :)

Well crap, that headline got me all stirred up.

Not only do I remember Macweek, I remember walking down to their offices each week to pick up my free copy, because I could never get on their freaking subscription list.

But even before I read the details of this "new" Macweek my enthusiasm faded, because I remembered that the delicious, chapswearing, creamy center of Macweek is no more. Go in peace, Mac the Knife, wherever you are... :-(

LOL I wonder how many people lied their butts off trying to get on that list? :)
