Private Frazer’s Law of computing magazines states that every eighteen months there will be half the number of titles that existed previously and that each will carry half the number of ad pages.

Further vindication of this rule is the demise of PC Utilities magazine. Their website summarises the problems for the whole category:

Over the last few years, there has been a significant decline in demand for printed monthly computer titles …. Whilst we have explored every avenue to keep the title running, recent store closures and low sales figures have meant it is no longer financially sustainable.

Now they’ve turned it off, perhaps they could turn it back on again and see if it works?
