Posted in Site News
It is with tremendous sadness that I announce my decision to close both NZMac.com and NZiPhone.com on 1 March 2011 as I have been unable to find a buyer for the two sites. I will be keeping ownership of the domain names and I will not be passing on the user/subscriber list to any third party. Holders of an NZMac.com email account will be contacted within the next 24 hours and given until the end of March to move their accounts to another email service. I apologise for the inconvenience that this will cause.
I firmly believe that the sites are of value to the Mac/Apple/iPhone New Zealand community and that both the content and functionality of the sites are something we need here in NZ. It's been a fantastic (and on occasion frustrating) eight years, and I have learnt a lot from the experience.
The thing that I will take the most away from the eight years running the sites is that it has allowed me to interact with a fantastic Mac community in New Zealand and overseas. I want to take this opportunity to thank you all for your support and use of the site over the years. I do intend to post news on both sites in the final month, as I want the sites to go out as they began...providing you with all the news you need on Apple's great products.
Best wishes, Philip Roy
