2013 was a huge year for iMore. We covered CES, Macworld|iWorld, BlackBerry Live, MWC, GDC, Google IO, E3, WWDC, IFA, and completed a 10 week event all our own, Talk Mobile. We reviewed the iPhone 5s, iPhone 5c, iPad Air, Retina iPad mini, iOS 7, OS X Mavericks, and some award winning and amazing apps. Sadly, we lost Leanna Lofte but gained shared custody of Richard Devine and launched our Mac coverage with Peter Cohen. Collectively, we wrote 4,965 posts containing 1,885,784 words, and produced 7 podcasts comprising 208 episodes, including the brand new Vector. Most importantly, we once again doubled our amazing community — all of you! — to almost 7 million readers a month. That makes us one of the very biggest Apple-focused communities on the planet, which is an incredible honor and huge responsibility, especially when it comes to figuring out... just what the #@(* is next?
Hard as it may be to believe, we're already halfway through the first month of 2014, and CES is already behind us. We have lots more planned, though. Mobile Nations fitness month is being postponed from its usual February start date to some time just before summer. Macworld|iWorld is also later this year, not rolling around until March. So what might we do in between? We'll be celebrating the 30th anniversary of the Mac next week, and Peter's talked about launching some special, Mac-centric projects right after that. Ally also wants to get back to the DIY stuff. Anything in particular you'd like to see?
Richard Devine used to be 80/20 on iMore/Android Central, but because things on the Google side are even crazier than they are here, he's switching to 20/80 from now on. Should we bring on some new blood so we get even more great perspectives and points of view? Should we try to get some established editors or columnists onto iMore and see if we can be even better together? If the latter, which big Apple personalities would you love to see here?
Yes, there'll be a Talk Mobile 2014 — no spoilers! — and we've got a lot more planned as well. But beyond all that, in general, what would you like to see more of — or less of — from us here at iMore in 2014?
