MacAddict (September 1996)

MacAddict (September 1996)

MacAddict was a magazine for Macintosh computers that was roughly equivalent to something like Maximum PC (called "boot" at the time) for the PC. I was not a big fan of Macintosh computers at the time but I appreciate Power PC based Macs as retro machines today. MacAddict eventually became MacLife which is not as good as far as I can tell. The premiere issue of MacAddict from September 1996 includes: Highlights
  • Just What the Doctor Ordered - What has Apple's new CEO done for you lately? MacAddict's been keeping score. Here are 35 good deeds for which we can thank Dr. Gilbert Amelio.
  • Internet Visionary - Meet Larry Tesler, the man charged with plotting Apple's Internet strategy. What will he do to make the Internet easier for you to use?
  • OpenDoc Rocks - We take you on a visual step-by-step tour of OpenDoc. Find out how it works and why it makes working with your Mac an almost-new experience.
  • Brave New Browsers - Believe it or not, Netscape Navigator isn't the only browser in town. Should you use Microsoft Internet Explorer, NSCA Mosaic or Cyberdog instead?
  • Stand By Your Mac - Don't let Windows users give you grief. Fight back with these 25 reasons why the Mac is still a better machine.
How To
  • Fake a Photo - How to create a photo that tells those little white lies.
  • Organize a Web Page - Lesson one in our "How You Too Can Become a Webmaster" series: Laying the foundations for the perfect home page.
  • Build a Home Network - Want to share files? A printer? A modem? Here's how.
Every Month

  • Letters - What did you say? Are you talking to us?
  • Get Info - News, trends, trivia and answers to those nagging questions.
  • Cravings - We pick the products that are designed to make you drool.
  • Reviews - Power Computing clones, Bryce 2, Bad Mojo, the best and worst CD productions and kids' software reviewed by real kids.
  • Ask Us - It's better than calling the Apple support line. We offer counsel for all of your Macintosh Conundrums.
  • PowerPlay - Our in-depth game section takes you behind the lines of Spycraft, the espionage game. Teasers about the summer's newest games, too!
