SchwarzTech is an Apple-focused technology site, mostly written and produced by Eric Schwarz, although some other fine folks have contributed.

To get in touch, you can email hello -at- schwarztech -dot- net. Corrections, questions, and reasonable complaints are always appreciated. If you feel like this is a place where you should solicit your web design or SEO services, please don’t. The message may not even come through, and even if it does, it’ll be deleted. Oh, and advertising links too.

You can also keep track of what gets published by subscribing via RSS (JSON Feed, too!) or following on Mastodon. We’re also featured on #OpenWeb. SchwarzTech no longer maintains a presence on Facebook or Twitter.


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, the site moved to the current domain. During that time, there have been numerous reviews, opinion articles, news stories, live coverage of Apple events, and much more. Since 1999, the technology industry and Apple have changed a lot, but there’s always something new to write about.


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.
