In an attempt to recover from the loss of 500 members, we sent an email appeal last week that resulted in over 500 people signing up for the TidBITS membership program and putting us back on firm footing. Thank you!
A couple of recent episodes of the Mac Admins podcast are worth checking out. First, Adam and Tonya joined the hosts to talk about Internet technical publishing and a wide variety of other topics—you’ll enjoy the stories. Second, the Mac Admins hosts managed a rare coup, getting two Apple employees on the show to talk publicly.
In keeping with our tradition, we’re going to take off the last few weeks of the year to spend with family and friends, so look for the next email issue of TidBITS on 7 January 2019. Thanks for your attention in 2018, and we hope you’ve enjoyed both our content and our site redesign this year!
If you set up an automatically renewing TidBITS membership before April 2018, our new membership system will require a one-time restart from you. Sorry for the inconvenience!
Our membership program plays a crucial role in ensuring that we can bring you TidBITS every week, but memberships went down earlier this year during the transition to our new Internet infrastructure and its new membership system. Join TidBITS today and help us continue our award-winning tech journalism!
The hosts of the Command Control Power podcast for Apple consultants have commissioned a theme song from songwriter extraordinaire Jonathan Mann—anyone who has ever answered tech support questions will particularly appreciate its sly humor.
We’re taking the next email issue of TidBITS off to celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday in the United States, although we’ll continue to publish articles on the site. You can look forward to the next email issue on 3 December 2018.
We’ve been running some quick polls at the end of some recent articles, and we wanted to share results from the first batch. Check them out to see how your opinions and experiences correspond with those of other TidBITS readers.

Please welcome our latest long-term TidBITS sponsor, easyDNS, the Canadian Internet company that we have long used for DNS hosting and management, and now rely on for email services.
It’s possible to read TidBITS in Apple News, but until about 10 days ago, almost no one did. After Adam Engst had a call with Apple’s Publisher Relations team, traffic has increased, but we need your help to get Apple News to recommend TidBITS to new readers.
Our friends Jeff Carlson and Kirk McElhearn have launched PhotoActive, a new podcast about photography in the Apple ecosystem.
We’re taking a brief break from building an email issue of TidBITS next week in honor of the Memorial Day holiday in the United States, so look for the next issue in your mailbox on 4 June 2018.
When it comes to Apple News, TidBITS readers either use it or they don’t — there isn’t a lot of middle ground. Some of that is due to geographic limitations. What’s your opinion?
Do you use Apple News? We’re running a survey to see how often you turn to the News app to find out what’s happening in the world. And we’re happy to announce that TidBITS is now fully available in Apple News Format.
