The PC Magazine Network Launches New Online Solutions
The PC Magazine Network, which includes PC Magazine and PCMag.com, has expanded its technology media brand with the launch of three new Web offerings. GoodCleanTech, Security Watch and mobile.pcmag.com--a mobile version of PCMag.com--have now been added to the publisher’s online portfolio.
“Consumers now enjoy limitless media options, yet only a finite number of trustworthy outlets,” says Lance Ulanoff, editor-in-chief, vice president of content, The PC Magazine Network. “The new PC Magazine Network properties provide users a trusted resource for the necessary information to make them savvier consumers.”
GoodCleanTech offers consumers reports on the latest environmentally friendly developments in computers, automobiles, energy/power and more. In addition to reports, visitors to the site also will find news, tips, advice and ideas on how to decrease their environmental footprint. The second of the Network’s new Web sites, Blogs.PCMag.com/SecurityWatch, provides similar types of information, such as news and advice, on the topic of tech security, including updates on the latest viruses and other security threats.
The PC Magazine Network developed mobile.pcmag.com through a partnership with Chicago-based mDog to deliver PCMag.com content to mobile devices. The mobile site is a free service that operates from any cell phone.
“Site users tell us all the time they want a version of PCMag.com they can check out on their PDAs when they’re in a store, so they can see what we thought before deciding to buy a product,” says Robyn Peterson, vice president of product management and CTO, The PC Magazine Network. “Now it’s a reality.” Mobile offerings include reviews and feature stories, and users have search capabilities.
“... With mobile.pcmag.com, [consumers] can receive breaking news anywhere,” adds Ulanoff.
