    Default The end of PC World?

    It will be a sad day for technological publishing if they do decide to scrap PC World (as hinted in the Business section of today's Herald. I for one look forward to receiving my monthly copy of PC World. If Fairfax decide to scrap it, will this mean that this wonderful forum will also bite the dust?

    I spotted the news story on it with interest, having been a contributor to PCW for quite some years, and a moderator on this forum for a while. Things have certainly moved on. Part of me is surprised that Fairfax aren't trying to sell the pubs, but maybe they have and failed. It is a very different world from even five years ago. I just watched an awesome documentary on bulletin boards called BBS, and it was an excellent example of how fast things can change.
    I would be pleasantly surprised if pressF1 endured beyond the life of PCWorld.
