In an interesting addendum to the post below about Mac coverage, the Macalope has learned from his friend the Ratboy…
You may have heard of him. Part boy, part rat. He’s been in the papers.
Not to be confused with the bat boy. That guy’s just a publicity hound. And a total name dropper. Phew.
Anyway, according to the Ratboy, IDG — the parent of Macworld — is hiring a Mac reporter for the mother ship. While IDG does frequently cross-post Macworld stories to its various publications, a dedicated Mac reporter at the parent will likely mean more Mac coverage and wider distribution.
That sound you hear is the sound of the Mac universe expanding.
Or, possibly, somebody hates these cans.
