As we celebrate the end of another year, we at Australian Macworld and would like to take a moment to thank you for your readership, and to wish you and yours all the very best for the holiday season, 2010 and beyond. Be sure to click through for your official AMW Christmas cards – they’re sure to give you a laugh – and we’ll see you back here from January 4.

2009 was a year of many changes for Apple, with the hiatus of Steve Jobs; the decision to pull out of the Macworld Expo; a frenzy of hardware updates in March and again at the end of the year; the launch of the iPhone 3GS, which added long-awaited new features and helped propel iPhone sales to stratospheric heights; the 2 billionth download from the App Store; not one but two Mac mini refreshes; the largest and fastest iMac ever; and, reflecting the success of all this strategy, surging financial results that have turned Apple into one of the world’s most valuable IT companies.

It was an equally busy year at AMW, with not one but two new editors; the successful relaunch of our fortnightly podcast; commencement of our regular Twitter feed (@AusMacworld); and a major redesign of the print magazine based on an extensive reader survey conducted earlier in the year.

These changes all helped reinforce the foundation on which AMW is built: solid content, a responsive and dedicated editorial team, and loyal and engaged readers who are interested and active both online and offline. As we move into 2010, we do so with solid print and online structures and a long list of things we plan to make AMW even more relevant and engaging for you.

In the meantime, we’d like to offer you online Christmas greetings from all of us at Australian Macworld. Click here, and then here, and after you’re done laughing at our collective expense (and acrobatic prowess), why not drop by the AMW Forums to share your thoughts and your hopes and dreams for 2010. And, above all, have a safe and happy holiday!
