Rob-ART of barefeats.com is asking for donations to help him buy Apple hardware to test. I've used his site often enough over the years-- I chipped in $10 bucks. The link is on his home page if anyone else is interested.

Apple got rid of their Mac hardware affiliate program a few years ago which really hurt his income I believe. Definitely a good guy to donate to. Some of the best (and only) Mac performance reviews on the web.

Rob is the man. I've used his reviews to inform decisions I didn't want to spend my own cash on investigating so many times over the years.

When there's a multiplayer version, I'm going to be on Frost's team. Well, except he doesn't seem to actually need a team...I mean, what's the point? "Hey look, it's Frost and His Merry Gang of Useless Hangers-On!" Or something.

He started that site about 2 years after IMG launched. So many sites have come and gone since..
