Ziff-Davis throws out baby, bathwater, Berst
Taking a quick break from his Christmas shopping blitz, Andy pointed out to me a Wired news report (now redirected to wired.lycos.com, appropriately enough) that says Ziff-Davis will be selling off its computer magazine unit. No kidding:
The unit publishes PC Magazine, the world's No. 1 ranked computer trade magazine, PC Week, a computer industry weekly and PC Computing, the second largest US computer consumer monthly. It also includes Interactive Week, an Internet weekly magazine, and Yahoo! Internet Life, a popular Internet consumer magazine title.
It seems computer mags are indeed dead.
