The Quality and Integrity of our Journalism

Journalistic integrity and trust are Architosh’s highest aspirations, and the online publication continues to win over the respect of the tech industry’s leadership, supporting our mission (see footer) by offering praise and endorsement.

Anthony has established himself over the years as a reference and authority in the world of 3D and CAD in general, and on the Apple platform in particular. His in-depth knowledge and understanding of the industry’s evolution and debates, his never-ending passion and his talent to communicate have positioned Architosh as a leading source of information that I often used in my work. Anthony is also an excellent partner who knows how to accommodate vendors’ communication needs while preserving the independence of objectivity of his website.

Jacques Sedille, Senior Manager, Apple


Anthony is a dedicated professional that is very knowledgeable of the CAD and Macintosh markets. He writes well, has the highest integrity and is great to work with.

Tom Lazear, CEO, Archway Systems, Co-Founder of VersaCAD


I appreciate Anthony’s integrity, knowledge, and candor. He was always willing to provide articulate, accurate assessments of market conditions and the technical challenges facing architects. He possesses a talent for strategic thinking.

Tad Shelby, Business Development Manager, HP

Austin Miller, Head of Marketing, Strata


Let’s start with the positioning on the main page! The pull quotes are great and the article is nicely punctuated with graphics. We even sent Steve Jobs to the site and he liked the article (really)…class job.

Thanks so much for forwarding that link. I have to say your review was one of the most thoroughly analyzed and well-worded ones I’ve read in a long time. Simply fabulous! It was a pleasure to read it. Thank you.

Reader Reaction to our Journalism

Praise from our readers has been overwhelming throughout all 19 years on Architosh. We love to hear from you directly and value the good and the bad. Here are a selection of comments from our readers:

I am delighted to have just discovered Architosh via your review of Strata 3D CX 8.1. I must say, it seems so rare to find reviews with this caliber of writing these days, especially in the archviz/3d space. Reading this article brought me back to the days when print magazines reigned. Keep up the great work. 

Jacob Perl


Thanks for the great interview. You produce a great service by such interviews. Insight into the minds of industry leaders is fantastic and provides a forum for technology and its application in the design world outside of just the Mac community.

Ralph Byrd


Brilliant site. Love it. Excellent work.

Thank you very much for the recent articles/editorials on this topic. I strongly support this effort. Not only do I personally prefer using Macs but I run across other scientists and engineers who would prefer to use them. Regards.

To whome it may concern: Awesome Mac-based CAD resource!
