Are you a Mac user? If so, you are probably not just a Mac user, but also a fan of Apple . A fan that always wants to be in the know of the latest product releases & updates, news & conferences and tips & tricks on how to use your Apple product. Even if you are not a Mac user, you can’t deny that Apple has become one of the world’s most recognized brands. With such a large and growing fan base, you can imagine how many Apple focused websites are out there.
Bridging the Mac Community and Keeping Tabs on the Rumor Mill – That’s their tag line. The site, hosted on Cloud Sites, is a one-stop shop where you can view all the latest Apple news pulled from various websites and blogs. Aviv Hadar, founder of ThinkBrilliant, started MacBlogz with his friend, David Fields, to fill their own void and to catch up on the latest Apple news.
“MacBlogz.com allows users to browse the most recent, important and up to the minute news related to Apple and the hi-tech world from one carefully designed and highly organized website. It showcases top headlines from today’s most respected Mac news sites while at the same time featuring its own unique brand of Mac news coverage, respected opinions and exclusive interviews with industry insiders. This community driven site attracts professionals, hobbyists, fans, enthusiasts, die-hard Apple loyalists, evangelists and plain tech enthusiasts, alike, who rely on MacBlogz to efficiently and effectively navigate the Mac community.”
Macblogz receives over 15,000 unique visitors daily! They are able to bring in that kind of volume by keeping the content very fresh, and delivering it at blazing speeds. Aviv feels that cloud computing has been a perfect solution for hosting MacBlogz:
“We’ve been very impressed with the speed which is very important for us because we have users accessing our site from all over. MacBlogz would have needed 2 dedicated servers, a load balancer and a slave database. I do not have to worry about any of that since Rackspace takes care of it for me. We are proud to host with a company that has a world class name and most importantly to be able to experience Fanatical Support.”
We here at the Rackspace Cloud are fans of MacBlogz too. These guys are “passionate about making a positive contribution in the ever growing Apple and tech online community.”
