Another tech magazine down for the count

Falling sales and increased internet numbers are sighted as the reason for PC World Australia's demise. TechCrunch's Duncan Riley says "where exactly is the appeal, particularly in tech, of reading a magazine that reports on news that is 6-8 weeks old, or sometimes even older than that?" I think he's just about nailed it! It's hard to compete with the speed of publishing in an internet world and add to that the customizable alternative, rss feeds, and paper is hard pressed to keep up. I'll still miss my Business 2.0 as it was my chance to get away from the PC for an hour or two but as long as Wired keeps publishing I'll have one publication to turn to.
