Just wondering as it is starting to get on my nerves a little bit at this point with the Lack of Mac and iOS news on the Mac and iOS "blogs."

How is Apple Campus 2 news, Weekly Buyers Guides for all Apple products, Executive hires and fires, the latest Steve Jobs bio pic/opera, and Apple Car rumours all related to a "Mac" blog? The same goes for Apple Watch and WatchOS news on the "iOS" blog.

Why can't you have a "Back page news" section/page for those items not deemed worthy of the front page, but only generally related to Apple? Keep the Mac and iOS blogs clean and focused?

Also, everyone likes to look at the back page of the tabloids, so something like "Back Page News" might actually generate more traffic by virtue of having that extra section of articles to look through...

Would be nice to go into the Mac and iOS blog pages and actually see Mac and iOS articles...

MacRumors was launced in 2000. Just to put this into perspective, the iPod hadn't even been introduced at that time. It was named MacRumors because Macs were practically the only thing Apple manufactured back then. It's simply news about everything Apple, and always has been if you look through the archives.

Also Trollhättan is a damn cool name for a town.

Thanks, but I don't see how any of what you wrote applies as anything other than an excuse to stay stagnant and not change by instead trying to shoehorn new content classes into the existing framework of the site which doesn't match or fit - it degrades the reading experience. The Mac blog and iOS blog sections are actually relatively recent additions to the site, only a couple of years old IIRC.

@arn - thank you, much appreciated.
