About Tips from Tony/Subscribe

The Tips From Tony e-mailed newsletter is my way of spreading good cheer and useful gossip about the Macintosh universe. It’s the exact opposite of SPAM – You can always trust what I send you – I will only share great, useful stuff, and you will be happy that it arrived in your e-mail.

In the early days of the Internet, my newsletter had a different name (“Mac*Chat”) and a LOT more subscribers. It was the ninth-largest newsletter on earth, with just under 100,000 readers in 71 countries, on every major land-mass except Antarctica. I had to stop issuing that version, because the e-mail load was killing me. I would get around 1,000 e-mails a week, saying something like ” Hello from Sumatra/Saudi Arabia/Mali! I love your newsletter! Do you mind if I ask you just one question?” My Catholic Guilt kept making me want to be courteous and respond to EVERY MESSAGE!

So, I renamed the newsletter (to “Tips From Tony”) and trimmed the subscription-list down to just the people who knew me personally through my business, here in San Diego County. I’m pleased to say that around 90% of my subscribers KEEP every e-mail message that I’ve ever sent them, setting them aside for later reference. The e-mail newsletter will let you know when there’s something new to find there, and you can come in, read all you want, and even leave comments.
