The End of Siracusa’s Reviews

Though Apple will presumably announce the next major version of OS X at WWDC this coming June, I won’t be reviewing it for Ars Technica or any other publication, including the website you’re reading now.

John might still review the occasional microwave, but those OS X reviews were pretty special.

The one, long article I wrote about OS X for Ars Technica every year or two has long since been dwarfed by the volume of my audio output.

There is no doubt that John’s audio vastly exceeds his written endeavors, especially in the last few years. But there is something icky about podcast audio. Podcast audio feels almost as ephemeral as a tweet, but even harder to access easily. By comparison, you could flip to any page in a review pretty easily. It’s not too different, content wise, but the experience we have with his reviewing will be different.
