Written by MacHighway Team on February 19, 2019

Today, 55.1% of the global population are internet users. That represents a whopping 1,066% increase from 2000!

Written by Chris Graves on September 11, 2014

It’s the seventh major change to our web site since we started the company in 1997.  I think it looks great, but we’ve also made changes that go far more than skin deep.
