This is the most difficult, but at the same time, the most exciting story I have ever written. After almost 30 years of reporting on Apple, I am retiring. I guess the biggest question is what happens to The Loop. Daily posts will stop, but the site will remain online, and we’ll use it to host The Dalrymple Report podcast, which Dave and I have decided to keep going.
Wow, I didn’t see this coming, but good for Jim! The Loop has been a massively important site in the Apple blogosphere forever.
It is also maybe the first example I can think of where someone in our corner of the web has ended their blog/channel/podcast/etc. because they’re literally retiring. So often people stop because they get a new job or just get bored of it, but to actually retire? Just a new feeling I’m not used to!
Much love to Jim and Dave Mark for all their work on the site, and best of luck to both of them!
