Welcome to MacStrategy

MacStrategy is a web site with lots of free (technical) information and news about Apple products with a specific slant to Europe. Most Apple focused web sites are very USA centric so although we have useful information for American users, we do try to make sure the information we post is also relevant to European users. You can keep up with the latest news, information and software updates via our Twitter feed (see also the right hand column) and our blog (the link to our latest blog post is below). We have many reference articles including some great technical information on the site. Just take a look at our articles listed below, use the navigation menu or icons above or you can go straight to our recently updated/added article lists now. If you're looking for a forum type site we recommend popping over to MacInTouch (albeit they have a very USA centric user base).
