I noticed in the past two months that MacMinute slowly started to dwindle down to a few bare posts a day. Now that they are updating more it's even more of a better reason to come back often. Granted, there wasn't much new news as of late until the Tiger release, but still. <br><br>Thank you for updating more often. <br>
Now if we could just get them to post something that isn't a day old and found on every other MacNews site on the net... <br><br>While I understand that news is news, and pretty much all the sites get the same press releases, I would like to see them re-written with more of an opinionated slant, rather than what they are doing - which seems to be just posting the first and last paragraph of the press release.<br><br>Maybe I'm just wanting more from MM than what its intent is, but as I said, I can get the news anywhere � including the RSS feed. There's virtually no reason whatsoever to visit MacMinute's main site. I can get the same thing just by looking at MacUpdate or Versiontracker. MacMinute seems to be frozen in time, with no plan to "expand its horizons."<br><br>About a year or so ago, I offered to do software reviews as an added value to the news site. Not gigantic in-depth reviews, but quick/brief "user-level" reviews to match MM's "quick-read" format. Nothing ever came of it. They could add a user-gallery to the forums, which tends to bring a LOT of people to the site, thus increasing ad revenue... but we can't even get Stan to upgrade the forum software, let alone add features to it.<br><br>It's all very disappointing & frustrating.<br><br><br><br>CreativeGuy: For your "fix" of design software tips, tricks & commentary.

Well, at least they are updating. I know that this remains one of the few places to get quality MacNews from, that seems to only report the news. <br><br>I remember a time when MM was the first to get a story, but that rarely happens as of late. <br><br>One thing I noticed was how they stopped reporting news from Think Secret and other online rumor sites and only posted legit news. So that slowed it down a little. I guess I wish there was a way to post comments to news stories, kind of like MacDailyNews. MDN is terribly biased, but I think that site is great. I have no sympathy for Windows users, and neither do they. <br><br>
Stan is a great guy, and I love what he's doing here, but one does get the sense looking at the front page that there have been some cutbacks. <br><br>Like the system maintenance message on Friday that said publication would resume Saturday. We all know that Macminute hasn't been publishing on the weekends.<br><br>
Maybe Stan would be open to giving us a "State of MacMinute" post. We've all been here for so long that, in a way, we feel an ownership through time invested. Perhaps an update from the man himself would go far to alleviating some frustrations. <br><br>****************<br>
