NbC Announcement: A new era

September 2, 2009 at 7:20 pm

thumbnail1Netbook Choice has been around for exactly six months today and we’re using the opportunity to announce some changes to the site. The main change, and one that might disappoint some of our readers, is that we will be substantially reducing the number of news articles that we publish.

Over the last six months we have strived to bring you the latest news on a daily basis, however we have begun to question the value of this going forward. There are already some very good tech sites & blogs that provide excellent coverage of netbook news on a daily basis. As even some of the biggest tech sites cover the most mundane netbook news, often it feels that we can add little value to what’s already out there.

We still plan to cover news, but only on the most important announcements. Also, we will look to keep you up to date on exclusives and anything that hasn’t been covered yet by other sites. Going forward, our main focus will be on reviews & impressions for both netbooks and netbook accessories. This is an area where we feel we can add value over existing sites. We are also planning some further developments, although we’re not ready to talk about that in detail just yet.

I know this news will disappoint some, but rest assured the site will still be around and our passion for netbook technology continues unabated.

    Sorry to hear I won’t be seeing as many daily news articles, but I’m looking forward to seeing reviews and other detailed reports!

    Also sorry to hear this Tej. But I do fully understand, the big tech sites seem to cover ever single crumb of netbook news now days.

    I’m glad the site isn’t closing, but just changing directly slightly. It’s nice to have another netbook site run from the UK 🙂

    Cheers Matt! Don’t worry, it’s definitely not closing, there’ll just be less news articles that’s all.

    We’ve got to keep flying the flag for Britain! 🙂

    Good going Tej ! This is a wonderful platform you’ve created for gadgeteers to drop by and seek an honest tech opinion. The UI is very easy on the eye too. Cheers ^clunk^ !!
