We’re expanding Low End Mac with new recommendation articles, which will generally be shorter than full fledged in-depth reviews. We’ll be sharing our thoughts on what software, services, games, podcasts, devices, accessories, and more items we think might benefit you.
We will have categories for Mac, iPhone, iPad, and Android apps and accessories. I’ll begin sharing some of my favorite podcast links. We might talk about movies or TV shows or books or who knows what going forward.
We’re also recruiting. If you’ve been wanting to write for an established website – Low End Mac has been around since April 1997 – and have good communication skills, this could be your chance. Please use the comments section. I’ll be in touch.
We’ve also begun a new section on Future Tech, promising new technologies that we suspect will have a big impact in the long run. We started earlier this week by looking at how Dolby Vision could change the TV watching experience.
We’ve also been expanding our coverage of older computer gear to cover the Apple II family, as well as home computers from Atari, Commodore, Tandy/Radio Shack, and Texas Instruments. We’ve also done an overview of the Atari ST line and are working on one for Amigas, both of which used the same 680×0 CPUs as early Macs.
I’ve been using personal computers since my boss picked up an Apple II+ in 1979 and said, “This is the future. Let’s figure it out.” We did, and I took to it like a fish to water. I’ve used Apple II, Commodore, and MS-DOS computers on my way to the Macintosh. I’ve been using Macs since 1986 and owned my first one in 1990 or 1991.
I hope these profiles can help those who didn’t live through the home computer era, the early DOS PC days, and the Mac/Atari/Amiga battles to better understand the background of today’s computers.

I’m very interested in writing for Low End Mac in any capacity that would be deemed print worthy. I’d love to discuss with you further what that would entail and what areas specifically you are interested in having coverage provided for. I will leave my email at the bottom of the comment and I’d love to discuss in greater detail there what skills I could offer as a writer. Thanks! – Z.W. Buckley
I’d be really interested in writing for LEM too. Been a long time reader and have thought about contributing in the past but never actually done anything about it – think it’s about time!
Rather than put my personal email ‘out there’ is there an address I can drop you a message at?
