This is my last regular news post for the Cult of Mac. Since my arrival at the site’s inception, there have been many changes in the Apple landscape — and on these pages. It’s time to move on.
When I first began here, the iPhone was new, Steve Jobs was still on the sick-leave roller-coaster and the Cult of Mac was just breaking away from its nest at Wired. Today, we are writing about the iPhone 5, getting comfortable with Tim Cook as Apple CEO and looking forward to the next stage of Cult of Mac as the news source for all things Apple. For myself, as Apple becomes a mainstay in business, I leave my duties as the unofficial Cult of Mac business editor for other tech news endeavors.
I want to thank my friend and boss Leander for bringing me onboard way back when. Also a hat tip to Deputy Editor John Brownlee for his patient working turning my Wall Street wonk into more interesting tech tabloid. I enjoyed working alongside a great bunch of news writers, their names well-known to readers.
But I especially want to thank the readers for supporting the idea that the Mac world is one cult you never want to escape.
Editor’s Note: We’ll miss you, Ed!
