give those in the industry the most comprehensive and up-to-the-minute look
across the community. Should a news story interest someone, they are just
one tap away from the full story on the site who created the story.

tell us that they’ve been using it as their home page for some time,” said
Neil Ticktin, Publisher/Editor-in-Chief of MacTech Magazine. “We’ve been
testing a cell phone version for a while, so the iPhone specific version is
a natural extension of that experience.”
