About the Column
“Mac Potpourri” is a column periodically published on MacPrices (usually on a weekly basis, generally 4x a month, though not necessarily on the same day of the week) that primarily aims to take an assortment of previously published articles from around the web (containing different angles on the same story) with Apple, Inc. as its focus — the company whose products’ prices are tracked daily on this website — which are then, in turn, combined into one single article in order to allow readers to get a better sense of the main idea being presented: hence, the word potpourri in this column’s name.
In addition to those types of stories, “Mac Potpourri” also features original content such as a special series called People Profiles which focuses on individuals who use Apple products in their daily lives (or how those items are used to help others). Additional stories also include commentaries, editorials, and product reviews (as well as an exclusive story from time to time).
