To that end, these editorial additions come at a great time for the
magazine while it is enjoying its continued growth and success.

"The Mac developer industry is at a point today where now, more than ever,
developers are looking for information, direction and news." said Neil
Ticktin, Publisher of MacTech. "MacTech has continued to grow, even in the
