Our congratulations go out to Chris Breen, a fixture in the world of Apple journalism over the past few decades at both Macworld and MacUser. Breen made the word official on his personal blog, saying “Just a note to say that I’ve left Macworld to work for a Cupertino-based technology company you may be familiar with.”
Breen’s departure comes after parent company IDG laid off a number of employees in September of 2014, shuttering the 30-year-old Macworld magazine and leaving a much smaller staff in place at its home on the web.
With his move to Apple — where his new position is unknown — Breen is giving up his life as a well-known writer, podcaster, and musician:
Thanks, Chris, for all of the amazing work you did for Apple users over the years. May your best years be ahead of you!
