Readers will be aware the February issue of Macworld Australia has been delayed. We are doing our best to continue to bring you a locally produced printed issue of Australian Macworld but times are hard.
In Australia, advertising support it is getting harder to come by and this has lead to delays in the schedule. Long-term readers will note that we are running fewer ads than before. We are constantly seeking partners who can assist with helping to ensure the magazine’s future.
Even large publications, like daily papers, have cut back on their IT coverage. This is a direct result of advertisers moving their money away from print to other media.
As the editor, I remain committed to one of the few remaining print titles in the world committed to the Mac and Apple’s other platforms. As much as possible, we produce product reviews that are sourced locally and we endeavour to write stories that reflect the local Mac scene. Personally, I have spoken at three different Mac user groups already this year – I do this because I love the Apple platform.
The responses I receive to my weekly email are always encouraging and tell me there is a passionate family of readers out there who value Macworld Australia.
So, please be assured that Niche Publishing and I are committed to continuing to deliver a locally produced Macworld Australia. But also understand that we are doing this in a pretty tough environment.
