BYTE Bitten

BYTE Bitten — The pages of history will close temporarily on the venerable technology magazine BYTE. The 23-year-old magazine, which was recently sold by owner McGraw-Hill to CMP Media, will suspend publication for "several months" and undergo "refinement," according to a press release. Although BYTE didn’t focus on the Mac, it was known for fair and in-depth Macintosh reporting. It remains to be seen how the temporary demise of BYTE will affect the Apple advertisements that base their performance claims on BYTE benchmarks – BYTE has a FAQ page offering explanations and commentary surrounding its BYTEmark suite. For another perspective and more information, check out a page Jerry Pournelle, long-time BYTE columnist, has posted. [ACE]
