Since 1982, PC Magazine which is now owned by Ziff-Davis, has provided useful information in the computer technology arena. But the once popular magazine has fallen on hard times, and the last printed issues will cease to be published next January, 2009.

Ziff-Davis will continue the magazine online as PC mag. The article also states that:

Gadget and PC shoppers stay online now, preferring sites such as AOL’s Engadget, Gawker Media’s Gizmodo or CNET to print. Ziff Davis will follow that model and PC Magazine will become PCMag, part of a new network of sites called the PCMag Digital Network. The Network will also include ExtremeTech, Gearlog, Appscout, Smart Device Central, GoodCleanTech, DL.TV, Cranky Geeks, and PCMagCast.

I believe that other magazines may follow by also discontinuing their printed magazines as the economy continues to slow in 2009.

Comments welcome.
