About

SchwarzTech is an Apple-focused technology site, mostly written by Eric Schwarz, although some other fine folks have contributed from time to time. While we don’t cover everything that happens, we strive to provide high-quality product reviews, insightful commentary, useful tips, and coverage of the biggest Apple-related news stories, with a few other industry-related ones thrown in.

History

SchwarzTech began operations in 1999 as Eric’s own resource for older Macs and Web design (not necessarily combining the two, but they shared the space). It also served as a companion to his writings on other Mac sites. In early 2002, SchwarzTech merged with a few other smaller Mac ventures, creating MacWeekly. SchwarzTech became a page on the site, and MacWeekly gained a small following, featured many product reviews and articles. Some of these are still in our archives today. In late 2003, those involved amicably split, and most content was reorganized and rebranded as SchwarzTech. Because of this, we moved to the current domain. During that time, we’ve had numerous reviews, opinion articles, news stories, live coverage of Apple events, podcasts (Slide to Unlock, SchwarzTech Radio), and much more. Since 1999, the technology industry and Apple have changed a lot, but there’s always something new to write about.

Support

We try to keep ads and asking for money to a minimum, but if you do want to support us, you can buy a domain through Hover and we get a little kickback. Otherwise enjoy our unobtrusive ads by Carbon.
