This site, mac-nz, started out as an independent selection of Apple Mac and iOS/iDevice news and reviews for New Zealand, covering Apple Mac and iDevice (iPad, iPhone, iPod touch) hardware and software and accessories to make it easy to find the most up-to-date news and information on Apple products and software. It followed this line for ten years, 2007-2017.
Alas, Apple stopped bothering to update me on what the company was doing, and/or I fell out of favour. At the same time, I got a full-time job at a museum. Running out of time, and without the depth of information Apple used to provide me with, I suspended the daily news updates, the weekly Friday tips and the monthly PDF newsletters of the month’s best news, tips, views and tricks. However, my Apple addiction still exists, and everything I see of interest, I tweet out pretty much daily, so follow macnzMark and you’ll effortlessly be in the know.
Mac NZ was run by Hip Enterprises Ltd. Hip Enterprises’ director Mark Webster is a historian and writer, and long-time commentator on Apple-centric tech topics. Mark was author of the Apple Watch blog on the NZ Herald online (2009-2014) and before that editor of NZ Macguide Magazine (2002-2007); he’s currently still Co-Director of CreativeTech Ltd Publishing, which creates multi-dimensional books for the Apple iBooks platform.

Compulsive, obsessive, you know it – I write stuff that doesn’t fit into my existing blogs and magazines, so I put that on my own personal page. Please feel free but hey, there are so many millions of words out there …
