    I believe its to do with the name reflecting the sites content encompassing more than just 3d/Video info, guides and reviews...

    But I am sure Julio will post a news entry with full details soon enough ;)

    quite right. its a much more of an all encompassing technical one-stop. I dare say i'd have very little to write about or post on if it was just 3d cards and games....

    What?!? We would get some peace and quiet ;)
    I'm sure we will all get to know and love the name just as we do with 3ds *sob*
    When you consider how popular gamespot is this could be quite a good move for 3ds.
    TechPlanet could also have been a good name.

    Techspot?

    I must say, the sudden name change caught me by surprise.

    I liked the old name though :(

    But I suppose it will be saving me 3 keypresses to type in the new URL. :)

    Re: Techspot?

    I didn't see it until after I'd checked 2 of the forums... And only then because the Opera Suddenly said "TechSpot OpenBoards"...

    Guess I'm not that observant today...:rolleyes:


    As for the name change... I'd grown very much to like the name "3dspotlight"... But the new name doesn't sound that bad.. :)

    Just hope Julio keeps the old URL up as well, as many sites link to our guides, forum threads etc...

    You Remember...

    You Remember Julio said (before the contest) that a business deal was in the works; but couldn't announce it yet.

    Nope, people would have to make do with your inferior intellect in place of my superior one. ;) :) ;)

    I imagined it would be something similar.

    Supposedly Techspot is a more growth potential name if I recall Julio correctly.
    Makes sense, I mean like check our forums, we get 2 million or so hits a month (Last time I asked) but our Forums are still comparatively inactive. I mean, there's a good few sites out there in the few hundred thousands that seem to have much greater forum activity & all.

    if i remember correctly, long long time ago, 3ds was a site for gaming news.
    as time going on, it become more and more like a computer news site.

    I think when Julio initially setup it was a Rendition fan site.
