A few months ago, we hired Trey as our first paid blogger, and we've seen a big improvement on our news coverage as a result of this. In fact, the effort has been so successful that we are ready to hire again. We're turning to our community first before casting the net wider Requirements: You are over the age of 18 .

We are looking for people interested in covering the broad array of Apple products, from iPods, iPhones and iPads to Macbooks and Apple software packages. We also appreciate posts about industry developments that will have an impact on the position of Apple products in the market, meaning coverage of topics like Android will sometimes also be appropriate.
