Jeez, people! Take a Valium or something!

Interesting take.

An iOS Hints site sounds good in principle, but I wonder how such a thing will be in actuality. Unless you jailbreak, the bulk of the accessible functionality is provided by apps. So is this going to be just another apps review site? The built-in functionality can probably be described in a couple of weeks worth of hints, and then what are you going to do until the next revision? In fact, that sort of thing would be better suited to a proper Macworld writeup.

The complexity of OS X, and the power it provides is what makes the hints on macosxhints so useful. We'll see what 10.7 brings, but if Jobs is moving on to the next great thing and Apple themselves are going to increasingly neglect OS X in favor of iOS, perhaps Macworld should go the other way and declare that macosxhints has fulfilled its mandate and wind it down.
