MacNN today announced the discontinuation of its Mac OS X-specific section, osx.macnn.com. Mac OS X has grown immeasurably since its early days, and as such is now considered to be an integral and seamless part of the Mac platform. MacNN intends to offer innovative new ways of getting Mac news this Fall, for users who still enjoy specialized content. MacNN also introduced today a simplified version of the MacNN home page -- MacNN Slim Edition. The 'Slim' edition will allow users with slower connections/computers to keep pace on the latest Mac news. A more comprehensive and universal Mobile Edition of MacNN is still in development. The initial stages of MacNN's server upgrades are complete, and MacNN's mail services have returned to normal. We will also restore the 'Related Stories' feature, as it will no longer have a damaging impact on server performance. Finally, MacNN is very pleased to inform users of Microsoft Internet Explorer that initial testing shows that the "MacNN/IE" conflict has been resolved. No further browser crashes as a result of MacNN.com or the MacNN Forums should occur. Note to users dissatisfied with MacNN's news comment system: a more robust solution is still in development, and we expect to replace our current system shortly.
