The title of this column, "The Devil's Advocate", really says it all. John Kheit is an attorney, and he often takes a critical (some might say an overly critical) look at the issues. Also, John has unearthed some rather interesting developments from Apple and Microsoft alike.

Just A Thought is Vern Seward's editorial cyber-home. Vern is an IT guy, though his columns run the gamut from spam, to Steve Jobs, to Biofuel Cells, to the iTMS, to just how much AppleWorks sucks (and everything in between)

The Back Page is the space that Bryan Chaffin carved out for his own thoughts. He suffers from the delusion that there are folks out there who care what he has to say. Topics include just about anything related to the Mac market.

iPontificate marks the kick-butt return of Gary Randazzo to the pages of The Mac Observer. One of TMO's earliest columnists, along with his writing partner Randy Soare in Wasting Time with the Idiots, Gary turns his attention in his new column to the latest news and events in the Mac community.

Computing With Bifocals is aimed at the generation that remembers what the world was like before there was color, Nancy Carroll Gravley covers issues for people who don't care how their computer works, but rather what their computer and the internet can do for them.
