I have long been curating ram prices online and now it’s time for a new approach. I have tried different approaches as the demand for ram prices have declined now that Apple and a lot of other manufacturers don’t allow for ram upgrades to be done by the end user but nothing has really resonated with me to date.

I had thought about just writing articles about Apple and the like, but I am no news site nor do I have the time or interest to grab all the news. Also, my interests are widespread and not just Apple. I am interested in books, photography and other subjects just like you are, and over the course of the day I tend to visit these sites related to these topics and some times they have good stuff that at very least is worth a look and this is where I plan to do this from now on, and link out as much as I can

If you’re interested in just Apple news curated there a a lot of sites that do it better than I ever could like Macintouch, Macsurfer for news and MacPrices and DealMac for deals on Apple stuff and more but I need to have a place to share the stuff I find online in addition to just tracking ram prices and I figure that April Fool’s day is the perfect time to start such an adventure.

From time to time I may write an article or two when I have a thought or idea that I want to expand on further, but I will stick to what I do best – and that’s curate the stuff that interests me – just like ram and memory prices did so many years ago when I first started this site. And speaking of ram prices, I will still track them and you can find the perfect ram for your Mac from the menus on the top of the page just like always. Whether you’re looking to upgrade the ram on a ten year old iBook or the latest iMac (one of the few Apple computers you can still add ram upgrades to) there will still be a memory upgrade price chart for you to check. RAM price updates are not going anywhere.

Apple Sliced is a website that monitors prices and price drops on Apple Apps. It looks like quite the job to keep up on all the pricing drops and there seems to be a lot of stuff to wade through but if you’re looking for a deal on an app, this  might be worth a look. They  also track memory prices too. I thought I was the only one left that was still doing this.

System Folder is a website by Ricardo Mori that I like to drop in on from time to time because it’s a great way to revisit your youth if you were an Apple Fan back in the late ’80’s and early ’90s.
