MacVoices #15064: The Apple World Today Crew On The Launch of Their New Site


Steve Sande,  Kelly Hodgkins and  Dave Caolo have founded  Apple World Today, a site that brings the best of the old The  Unofficial Apple Weblog  over to a new site with new features and focus. The trio discuss what was involved in getting the site up so quickly, the long list of things necessary for a modern web presence, and some of the tools they are relying on. News, product reviews, opinions and, eventually, a community are all part of the mix of this promising new presence on the Apple web.
