I read CNN.com primarily for the home page stories. I check it more than most of the other news sites as it is updated more often. And I read the San Jose Mercury for the local business news and Bay Area news. Wish they still had Dan Gillmor, who just finished up writing some columns for the Financial Times (but is moving on again…)
For Lawyers, there is the MacLaw Yahoo! Group. This is one of the most active legal mailing lists around. Ask a question, get an answer. All Mac lawyers should beloing to this group/list. And Randy Singer of Mac Bible fame, has the MacAttorney Newsletter with over 5,000 subscribers.
And then there are the online Mac communities…. most of which are built around Mac Rumor sites. Of these there are 4 I read the most. MacRumors.com gives an overview of all of the rumors out there. MacSurfer.com has a list of all the latest stories across all of the Mac sites, ThinkSecret often has many of the earliest rumors and is produced by Harvard undergrad Nick Ciarelli. Finally As the Apple Turns is just fun to read and often has information first not found on the other sites. For many more Mac rumor, fix it, Powerbook and IPod sites, see the bottom of the home page of MacSurfer which lists most of these Web sites.
