Welcome MacMinute Readers!

In 2008, Stan Flack, a pioneer of Mac online journalism, passed away. The archives for MacMinute are now part of the MacNews archives so that you can see all the great history, and as a permanent memorial to Stan. Furthermore, the AppleCentral Forums have a permanent discussion area named after Stan.

In the tradition that Stan taught so many in the industry, MacNews brings you a number of useful services and up to date information (including news, reviews, scanners, and more). Forum users should create an account here and then use the AppleCentral Forums (see including some great areas dedicated to topics that we think you'll love.
