Another Popular Computer Magazine Ceases Publication

Written by Amit Agarwal on Oct 2, 2009

personal computer world It’s time to bid farewell to Personal Computer World, a monthly computer magazine from UK that has been in publication since 1978. What you see on the right is their 30th anniversary issue that came out just last year.

The magazine publishers say that the current economic climate and declining revenue from advertisements are partially responsible for the closure.

Advertisement and copy sale revenues have declined in parallel with the contraction of the monthly personal computer magazine market, to the point that the title is no longer economically viable.

Tim Anderson, who has been writing for Personal Computer World since ’93 adds that "PCW found itself caught between the demands of an aging readership which had grown up with the magazine, and that of a new generation."
