This is the fate of all large computer hardware sites, eventually, IMO. Tech is a commodity now and has been for quite some time. And you don't see thriving websites reviewing and discussing the merits of toilet paper and laundry detergent, because no one cares.
I don't think that it is people don't have interest in tech, there are large YouTube channels dedicated to it. That is the issue more than anything, is people started consuming news from YouTube.
