After little more than three decades in print, PCWorld magazine is discontinuing publishing with the current issue in order to focus on its online and digital versions. The last issue will be March 2018.
The decision was announced in December by publisher Ziff Davis, which acquired PCWorld in late 1994, and it comes less than two years after former CEO Paul Goldstien died at the age of 50.
PCWorld launched in August 1990. It was originally aimed at business users but over time began focusing more on technology products and services. The magazine's first editor-in-chief was Peter Farris who had previously been an editor at Electronic Engineering Times. He was followed by other notable editors such as Stephen Baker, Michael Gartland, and Erik Sherman. All told, they helped build a team that included more than 80 journalists at the time of its closing.
PCWorld covered news, reviews, and analysis about computers, tablets, and smartphones. It also featured stories about various industry trends including green computing, Internet of Things devices, and virtual reality. The last article published in the magazine was an interview with Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg. It appeared in the January 2018 issue under the title "How Mark Zuckerberg built a social network that won't die".
IDG publishes PC World, a global computer magazine, monthly. Since 2013, it has only been available online. It provides guidance on a variety of topics connected to PCs and associated devices, the Internet, and other personal technology products and services. The print edition was first published in January 1992 by IDG Inc., who acquired the publication in October 1994.
PC World is part of a group of publications that also includes PC Magazine, Computer Shopper, and Mobile Computing. The magazines are all owned by IDG, which also owns Web sites such as CNET and ZDNet. Other than printing an occasional special issue for distribution at retail stores or specific events, PC World does not have a physical presence at locations where it can be read in print or on paper plates. Instead, it is delivered exclusively through web-based media players, such as Zinio and Google Play Newsstand.
The print version of PC World is priced at $59.99 per year and the digital version is free with registration. Additional content is available for purchase within each issue. In addition to covering hardware reviews, games tests, and software recommendations, PC World also offers tips on how to save money, eat well, travel safely, and live a healthy lifestyle.
In June 2015, it was reported that PC World would begin testing a mobile-only subscription service under the name "PC World mCommerce".
Ziff Davis Media stated on Wednesday that its 27-year-old flagship, PC Magazine, would no longer be published in print and would instead be available online exclusively. It is the most recent of numerous magazine publishers to discontinue print editions as advertising declines and the cost of publishing a paper version rises. The last print issue will be December 2013.
PC Magazine was launched in August 1989 by WIRED editor-in-chief David Pogue and industry analyst Stephen Baker. The first issue included an article by Pogue on how computers could help save the environment titled "Losing Earth: Why our obsession with gadgets is destroying our planet." The magazine focused on technology products for consumers and professionals. It included coverage of emerging fields such as mobile phones and digital cameras along with reviews of established products. In addition to reviewing new technologies, the magazine also included articles on practical topics such as how to use new devices efficiently.
The magazine's early issues were printed on low-quality paper and were priced at $49.95 each. These prices were intended to draw in more advertisers by making the magazine affordable to small businesses. Over time, Ziff Davis changed the printing process from glossy to matte and reduced the price to $29.95 per issue. By 2001, when it merged with ZDNet, PC Magazine had annual revenues of $75 million.
In February 2004, Ziff Davis sold PC Magazine to a group of investors for $70 million.
Print publications have been phased away in favor of online media throughout the previous few decades. It's the way the world works these days. The majority of people prefer to read the news online rather than in paper. Print publications, on the other hand, appear to have a future. Every year, millions of magazine copies are distributed in the United States alone. There is certainly a market for printed products.
When you purchase a printed product, you are usually buying a copy of the magazine or newspaper. If there are no copies left in stores, there will be no one available to sell it to. If you want more than one issue of a magazine, it makes sense to buy them together rather than trying to find them separately. Magazines are priced based on how many copies they can make from their printing. If they cannot sell enough copies, then they will not continue making more issues.
Most newspapers are published weekly. This means that they only appear once a week, on a fixed day. Some papers may take longer to publish but most only have a small number of pages per issue so they cannot include much additional content without going back to reprint earlier articles. Magazine publishers work with different frequencies depending on how many issues they want to go into production each year. Some print only monthly or quarterly while others produce a new issue every week.
Magazines are expensive to produce. This is part of the reason why they tend to have shorter lives than newspapers. When a magazine is done, all its contents are published.

In August 2007, it ended print publishing. The firm has a collection of over 110,000 articles and over 300 unique characters. Weekly World News was reintroduced in 2009 as an online and social media newsletter. Neil McGinness was the editor-in-chief from 2009 until 2018. In October 2018, Eric Minton was named editor-in-chief.
It is published by World News Daily, which also publishes the similar but separate magazine The New American. Both are widely believed to be subsidiaries of the Nation of Islam led by Louis Farrakhan.
The weekly newspaper began publication on March 15, 1982, by founder William Randolph Hearst III. It was originally called The World News Report and was printed on yellow paper with the subtitle "A Publication From Behind the Iron Curtain".
The original idea came about when Ronald Reagan was elected president in November 1980. Reagan had been associated with Hollywood during his time as a movie star and was thought to be anti-Communist. The weekly newspaper was expected to expose what Reagan had done in the past that made him suitable for leadership positions within the government. However, after reading the first issue, Reagan's staff felt that it was too critical of their new leader. They ordered all distribution to stop immediately. After this initial failure, William Randolph Hearst III decided to change direction and focus the newspaper on politics instead.
