I have three or four nerdy/techy/gadgety websites that I check out every day to keep on top of the latest technology.
I guess more folks spend money on mobile phones and tablets because that’s 90% of what they cover. I cannot tell you the last time I saw a review on a desktop computer but there has to be a little more than zero people still buying desktops, no?
I prefer creating content for the blog on my desktop wayyyyyy more than I do on my cell phone, laptop or tablet.
The limitations of small screens, less computing power and weaker applications make desktops so much more convenient to work on.
But I’m not sure why they get ZERO love on the tech websites. Does anyone else feel the same way?
Do you even consider buying a desktop any more? If so, where do you get your desktop computer info and what tech websites do you read on the regular?
See, I’m not sure if they are dying or just not being reported about.
My theory from a while back when tablet’s started to take off was that most teens will probably end up with tablets and be happy to simply consume content on them. Because they are just fine using tablets and cell phones for info they don’t feel the need or can’t justify the purchase of a more powerful desktop computer and hence don’t get into the creative side of computing as much.
I guess what I’m wondering is if the complete lack of desktop computing coverage is warranted. Is virtually no-one buying desktop computers any more?
I understand that tablets and cell phones are way more prevalent among teens and I get the obvious portability advantages of a laptop, but don’t working people and creatives still buy more bang for your buck and more powerful desktops?
Again I’ll go back to the main point- are there so few people buying desktop computers that they warrant virtually zero tech coverage?
I feel like that because there’s basically no one out there doing it that someone could carve out a niche with a desktop review site. That’s how far away from desktop computing we’ve got in my mind. That it would actually be considered a niche category in tech media coverage.
