PostPoints tip: Sites I like: MacInTouch

In a week that featured major news from Apple, it was a safe bet that I'd again consult one of the first tech-news sites I ever read: MacInTouch. This Mac-news site combines updates about software and hardware releases with its own in-depth reviews and readers' reports of their experiences with Apple's products and the programs and peripherals they use with them. MacInTouch looks little different from its debut in the mid 1990s, lacking any hint of multimedia flashiness and featuring far fewer ads than most news operations. (An Amazon sponsorship deal, including a daily list of new deals on the retailer's site, helps fund the site.) As a result, it's one of the fastest, cleanest sites around; it even looks right in the ancient Web browsers of pre-iPhone smartphones.
