MacLaunch the Internet's first portal site targeted exclusively at Macintosh users, was announced today.

MacLaunch will be officially open to the worldwide Macintosh user community on Wednesday December 1, and is the brainchild of New York-based firm, Mac Portal Company.

A Mac Portal Company spokesman said: "The site is dedicated to providing a wide range of Mac-centric online information and communication services.

"It picks up where standard Internet portal sites fall short for the Macintosh users. MacLaunch combines news, opinions, software updates, shopping
opportunities and a fully searchable database of Mac-related Internet sites."
