    Any input on the best website for hardcore Mac hardware and software gurus (besides this one)? Not necessarily Apple fan site, but Mac in particular.

    I'm not aware of any site that offers more than this one.

    ThinkSecret? AI? 4chan?

    Macrumors is likely number one with Apple's board in a close second.

    You never heard of ThinkSecret, the foredaughter of AppleInsider (AI), which shut down some moons ago? And you never heard of 4chan? What is the matter with you? Are you feeling alright?

    Anyway, this is the most hardcore we can get, unless looks at the Hackintosh fora, those are bestiality compared to our softcore.
    What was I watching again?

    ----------

    As said before, TS is done with, though there are AppleNova forums, AI is AppleInsider and 4chan has probably a Mac section.

    This place is not as fun as it used to be or I am not as fun as I not used to be, whatever, biatch.

    You might have ventured off into adult land with that one. Maybe iFixit for the technology porn?

    Don't forget about ehMac, iFans, and Macworld's forums. Personally, I find them to be riddled with incorrect information and poor thinking.

    Do they even have a chat community, where one can set dates and such?

    And I always venture off into adult county or land, my spinach is not doing it for me, and the cat, let me tell you about that cat. It cheats on me, with what or who you might not ask, I tell you. The neighbour's cat, in broad moonlight, under the plum tree, and then it reeks of plum schnapps (they have that same word in English, bastards). Ah yes, the Ardbeg is setting in.

    I'd imagine that iFixIt's community in that regards is very much like MacRumors'. I do love a bottle of schnapps.

    I'd like to see a MAC website without iOS crap. I'm into Macs, not little boy toys

    Apple's board? Don't they pretty much delete anything that's not a support question? It's pretty heavily moderated as well.

    I always liked Ars Technica, though I've never really posted there.

    They are a bit heavy in the moderation. Especially if the subject isn't something Apple wants allowed. Like discussion about hackintoshes and jailbreaking. But their technical support and overall knowledge is on par with MacRumors'.

    Yes, that's what initiated this inquiry... not a fan of the iCommunity. The products are nice, but I'm more interested in Mac info, i.e. OS X, hardware, history, and possibly even organizing for the sake of having more of a voice with product direction at Apple.

    Like you, I'm not very interested in the iPhone/iPod/iPad forums, so I simply don't visit them, and I block them from Forum Spy. I spend most of my time in the Mac forums. That's one good thing about this site: you can pick and choose what parts you want to participate in.
    Good luck with that. Apple doesn't give users much of a voice in product development. You can use Apple's feedback site, but they historically tell users what they need, more than the other way around.

    Which often seems to work out for the better. Ever since the iPhone was introduced back in 2007, I waited for the iPad mini (since it was clear, that the iPhone was a test and learning tool), but it took them quite a while.
    On the other hand, Mac OS X is going in the wrong direction for many Mac OS X users, but Apple does not seem to care about them. Maybe Ive will change that, maybe he will not.
