Technology hub CNET is bucking the trend of moving away from print launching a magazine.
A statement on the site said of the move:
Every phone. Every car. Every tablet. Every smartwatch. Every gadget has a story.
For nearly 20 years, CNET, through our pioneering online news and reviews site, has told stories of the technology, the people, and the companies reshaping our lives. We’re proud to have created a digital destination that helps everyone – from tech novices to enthusiasts – stay current, discover new products, and learn how they work.
We’ve grown up with the Web and understand its magic. We know the power of online photographs, slideshows, deep and trusted reviews, and broadcast-quality Web videos. Our work reaches tens of millions of readers each month in all the ways consumers expect to find information – on computers, tablets, and smartphones.
So it just makes sense that we’d take our expertise and deliver it through another medium we know our readers care about: print. Today we are proud to introduce the new CNET Magazine, available now in the United States and Canada.
Surprised? That’s the point. While others are running away from print, we’re embracing it to do what we’ve always done -tell stories in fun and compelling new ways. Our quarterly magazine showcases original work you’ll find only in the magazine, each piece reported and crafted by CNET’s talented writers.
