More End of Print Notices

Following on last month’s announcement of the imminent closure of the print version of the Christian Science Monitor comes news that Ziff Davis is to move PCMag to an online only model. Not entirely surprising given the subject matter, but a significant shift from the 80s when it was a mammoth (400+pages) printed publication. Interesting note in the paid content piece covering this story:

… the revenues on the online side have grown an average of 42 percent yearly since 2001; digital is about 70 percent of the revenues for the PCMag brand, and overall is profitable.

So someone’s making money online.
