Technology may no longer become focus of motherboard competition
     Tue, May 20 2014 | 9:03A | Business / Industry | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Competition in the motherboard industry is expected to gradually turn to focus on each player's brand power and channel relationships as newly developed technologies are becoming similar, according to sources from channel retailers in China. With Intel having released its new 9-series chipsets including the Z97 and H97, motherboard players have been aggressively pushing into the mid-range and high-end gaming industry, looking to boost gross margin performance and promote their technology leadership. The moves have created strong pressure on Asustek Computer, which has been occupying the market for a while. Currently, Asustek and Gigabyte Technology are competing fiercely in China's tier-1 to tier-3 cities, while their competition in tier-4 to tier-6 cities is evenly matched. For 2014, Gigabyte is trying to raise the shipment proportion of its gaming series products and its cooperation with China-based Tencent Games is expected to help steal demand from Asustek's ROG series. As for Micro-Star International (MSI) and ASRock, raising profitability has become their priority for 2014 since the two firms are unlikely to increase their shipments significantly.

The Tech Report 15 years on - time for Subscriptions
     Mon, Mar 17 2014 | 9:01A | Business / Industry | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We've been independently publishing The Tech Report for nearly 15 years, and today, we've come to a crossroads. You see, TR has been supported primarily by advertising sales since its beginning, but that business has been difficult for a while, for a number of reasons. Yet reader enthusiasm for the site remains incredibly strong. Our challenge has been finding a way to enable the community to support us. We didn't think any of the existing models were right for TR and its community, so we did what we've done in the past in tough situations: we innovated. What we've come up with is somewhat unique, and we think it's the best attempt of its type so far. Folks can pay what they want to support the site and get some nifty extras.

Changing Apartments in Manhattan? Maybe you should call 'You Move Me'
     Thu, Mar 06 2014 | 11:51A | Business / Industry | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In tech, as in any business, you have to know you can't do everyting yourself or know all the answers. It's just not possible to be an expert on everything... The good IT Admins know a lot, the best IT Admins know when it's time to call in a consultant who specializes in the issue at hand.

The tricky bit is knowing WHO the heck to call when that expert help is urgently required. Run by a long time colleague to PCSTATS, Cameron Robinson, NYC's 'You Move Me.com' is one such company to call, that is if you're changing apartments in Manhattan and want a moving crew that's there with the mind set to make sure things go right. :-)

www.pcstats.com

Don't take our word for it, see for yourself on NYC's 'You Move Me' FaceBook page - and no, this is not a "please click Like" ploy. Just a heads up on a company run by an outstanding fellow we know you can rely on.
