Apple Enthusiast Offers New Take on News Aggregation

by Adam C. Engst

Frank Cioffi's MWV News Portals has raised the curtain on another news headline aggregation site, called Apple Enthusiast [1]. Following in the footsteps of the company's Apple Investor News [2], Apple Enthusiast scours the RSS feeds of numerous Macintosh publications and sites, including TidBITS, to present headlines and links to original articles. What sets Apple Enthusiast apart from other aggregation sites is that it performs content analysis on articles and sorts them into categories, separating out Mac news from iPhone news, and homing in on product reviews, tips and tricks, developer news, iPhone and iPod touch software, games, Steve Jobs, and much more. Interestingly, there's relatively little overlap with Apple Investor News, showing just how much information is out there for people interested in Apple.
