We'd like our readers to start paying for Daily Maverick

More specifically, we'd like those who can afford to pay to start paying. What it comes down to is whether or not you value Daily Maverick. Think of us in terms of your daily cappuccino from your favourite coffee shop. It costs around R35. That’s R1,050 per month on frothy milk. Don’t get us wrong, we’re almost exclusively fuelled by coffee. BUT maybe R200 of that R1,050 could go to the journalism that’s fighting for the country?

We don’t dictate how much we’d like our readers to contribute. After all, how much you value our work is subjective (and frankly, every amount helps). At R200, you get it back in Uber Eats and ride vouchers every month, but that’s just a suggestion. A little less than a week’s worth of cappuccinos.

We can't survive on hope and our own determination. Our country is going to be considerably worse off if we don’t have a strong, sustainable news media. If you’re rejigging your budgets, and it comes to choosing between frothy milk and Daily Maverick, we hope you might reconsider that cappuccino.

We need your help. And we’re not ashamed to ask for it.

Apple is marching ahead

On Monday, Apple announced it had had a really, really good quarter. The sales of its recession-busting iPhone and new Mac computer models helped Apple’s revenues grow to $9.87 billion, from $7.9 billion last year, while net income grew from $1.14 billion to $1.67 billion. The analysts’ consensus was also beaten, maintaining Apple’s mythical status among shareholders and pundits alike.  Apple sold 7.4 million phones, 10.2 million iPods and 3.05 million Macs in the quarter. If there was a downside to such stellar results it was that Apple had trouble maintaining steady production lines to satisfy stratospheric demand for its products. The next major milestone for Apple is probably going to be a launch of the next big thing, dubbed iTablet by industry watchers. Although Apple wouldn’t even admit it is working on it, all indications point to the project being a stellar success that might redefine personal computing. Read more: The New York Times
