Yes, it took some time, but we finally managed to launch a new face for our site. We have cut down the flashy trimmings, focusing TG Daily on what counts – our articles. What you see today is our first step as a publication that is completely independent from Tom’s Hardware. It is the foundation from where we will grow, adding new features every few weeks over the course of the year. We have lots of ideas to make TG Daily faster, easier to read and more useful.Yes, it took some time, but we finally managed to launch a new face for our site.

We are aware that there are lots of great websites and blogs out there publishing lots of articles, videos and images every day. We are proud to have grown to the size we are today, but tech news publishing is changing faster than ever before and that of course means that TG Daily has to change as well. This new layout provides a glimpse of what we believe TG Daily should be and how news reporting will evolve in the foreseeable time.
Many of you are already aware that TG Daily has cut its ties to Tom’s Hardware at the end of last year. You can still find some news of TG Daily being published on Tom’s Hardware, but we will be heading into a different direction, leveraging our experience and partnerships to bring you unique and extensive news coverage of people, companies and events that shape the IT industry and the way we use technology in our jobs and private life.
So, what is different in this new layout?
A much simpler layout than the previous TG Daily will ensure that you browse through our articles much faster than before. We will put a greater focus on images and videos to go hand in hand with our text, which will allow you choose the media that suits you best and will provide the information you are looking for faster than before. We plan on increasing the usability of TG Daily continuously – which will include more opportunity for you to participate in our coverage and more ways to receive our content on different platforms.
Beginning immediately, we are also adding article series to our regular coverage. Every Monday morning, we will highlight one personality in the IT industry. Rather than interviewing people, we have sent out questionnaires with 10 personal questions revealing a very different side of unique personalities you may have read about in interviews. We are starting this series today with Rahul Sood, founder of VoodooPC and chief technology officer of HP’s Voodoo business unit. We are also bringing back our Trendwatch series, analyzing pricing trends in the IT industry, providing you with a guideline, which technologies are good deals and which are not.
Usability of course also includes advertising. While we cannot get rid of certain advertising forms, we have cut down advertising on TG Daily significantly, removing distractions from our content.
Of course, we hope you are coming along for the ride and letting us what you like and what you don’t like. Feel free to send us your thoughts. We cannot reply to every email, but every email is appreciated and will be read by our team. And if you would like to be part of TG Daily and our journey, feel free to drop us an email. We are expanding and we are always looking for great people to join our staff.
