I was pretty excited to replace my work MacBook Pro for the first time in four years. Although the new machine is very nice, my computing experience has not changed much. Contrast that with my last computer replacement, when I got an Intel chip for the first time, or the time before, when I received my first aluminum Powerbook.
Two of my favorite applications have apparently gone through some transitions. Smultron has been discontinued. I suppose a text editor does not require much in the way of updates, but I will eventually need to switch. I had thought that NetNewsWire was also discontinued, since it disappeared from Newsgator’s list of products. I guess it’s just gone under the radar. You can find it here.
