Hexus and Bit-Tech Closing up Shop
They say all good things come to an end. This true statement has bitter sweet meaning that is often referenced when it is time to say good-bye.
It would seem that two of the largest tech and hardware review based websites in the UK are closing up shop and will no longer be updated.
This news seems to have come as a shock to some however, it would seem the era of the tech and web review websites is slowly coming to an end and having Hexus and Bit-Tech close down is just adding to the vast number of similar websites doing the same. A couple years ago we had to say good-bye to HardOCP and The Tech Report and several smaller sites have also stopped posting updates.
It is sad to see them go but with dwindling ad revenue, the rise of social media and "tech" tubers all contributing to a shift in how marketing departments are handling the news and products. In the past marketing is about spreading the word and it has become much easier over the years to the point where websites and web magazines are no longer relevant.
I feel there is still a purpose to having a tech related website. The trick is being able to adapt and change else, you'll be left in the dust.
