Welcome to 2001!

Send Article to a Friend

Welcome to 2001! We're back from our two-week hiatus (only five or six hours of which were spent in the Detroit airport watching heavy machinery move snowdrifts around) and we couldn't resist the numerological happenstance of publishing on 01-01-01, so we mustered enough strength (a tad tricky, after retiring to bed at 01:01) to bring you this issue. Despite the troubles Apple and the rest of the computer industry have had of late, we're looking forward to this year, since we anticipate a Steve Jobs-led Apple will respond to adversity in interesting and aggressive ways, hopefully starting at next week's Macworld Expo in San Francisco.

One minor change in TidBITS for 2001 that you may notice - we're no longer releasing new polls or quizzes every week. Response rates were dropping, and we felt we were pushing too hard to come up with relevant questions. We'll continue to do polls or quizzes when appropriate to the contents of future issues, so keep an eye out.

Best wishes to everyone in the upcoming year! [ACE]
