    Like I mentioned, in the short to long term there should be further possibilities for growing which means more content and who knows what else.
     
  6. Butter it up!

    These guys are just trying to butter up the content. Meaning they won't say, "What we are really going to do is track what you do when your on our website." "more content" meaning more crap to try and sell us! Listen if techspot is hurting in the bandwidth department/ money department just cut down on the stupid picture idea, and stay true to the fundemental function of this site which is just to report tech news.

    Techtracker is not a spyware company, looks like you haven't even visited their website or read the press release, so next time please inform yourself better... they are independent publishers just like us, they own websites www.versiontracker.com and www.macfixit.com.

    They have also partnered with Betanews.com and Computing.net as well as with us, independent websites like ours can do much better in an united front for selling advertising as well as investing in technology, other than that, I keep complete ownership of the site.
