PC World, stylized PCWorld, is a global computer magazine published monthly by IDG.[2] Since 2013 it has been an online-only publication. It offers advice on various aspects of PCs and related items, the Internet, and other personal-technology products and services. In each publication, PC World reviews and tests hardware and software products from a variety of manufacturers, as well as other technology related devices such as still and video cameras, audio devices and televisions.

The current editor of PC World is Jon Phillips, formerly of Wired. In August 2012, he replaced Steve Fox, who had been editorial director since the December 2008 issue of the magazine. Fox replaced the magazine's veteran editor Harry McCracken, who resigned that spring,[3] after some rocky times, including quitting and being rehired over editorial control issues in 2007.[4]

PC World is published under other names such as PC Advisor and PC Welt in some countries. PC World's company name is IDG Consumer & SMB, and it is headquartered in San Francisco.[5]

Some of the non-English PC World websites now redirect to other IDG sites; for example, PCWorld.dk (Denmark) is now Computerworld.dk.

History[edit]

The publication was announced at the COMDEX trade show in November 1982, and first appeared on newsstands in March 1983; Felix Dennis set up Personal Computer World which he later sold to VNU, and established MacUser which he sold to Ziff Davis Publishing in the mid-eighties. PC Magazine was also acquired by Ziff Davis.[6]

The magazine was founded by David Bunnell and Cheryl Woodard, and its first editor was Andrew Fluegelman.

PC World's magazine and web site have won a number of awards from Folio, the American Society of Business Publication Editors, MIN, the Western Publications Association, and other organizations; it is also one of the few technology magazines to have been a finalist for a National Magazine Award.

Many well-known technology writers have contributed to PC World, including Steve Bass, Daniel Tynan, Christina Wood, John C. Dvorak, Stephen Manes, Lincoln Spector, Stewart Alsop, David Coursey, James A. Martin, and others. Editorial leadership has included Harry Miller, Richard Landry, Eric Knorr, Phil Lemmons, Cathryn Baskin, Kevin McKean, and Harry McCracken.

In 2005 the show Digital Duo was slightly rebranded and relaunched as PC World's Digital Duo and ran for an additional 26 episodes.

As of 2006, PC World's audited rate base of 750,000 made it the largest-circulation computing magazine in the world.[7]

On July 10, 2013 owner IDG announced[8] that the magazine would cease its 30-year print run. The August 2013 issue was the last printed of PC World magazine, future issues would be digital-only.[9]

Countries[edit]

Based in San Francisco, PC World's original edition is published in the United States however it is also available in other countries (51 in total), sometimes under a different name:

Controversy[edit]

In May 2007, McCracken resigned abruptly under controversial circumstances. According to sources quoted in Wired, McCracken quit abruptly because the new CEO of PC World, Colin Crawford, tried to kill an unfavorable story about Apple and Steve Jobs.[10] Crawford responded, calling media reports of McCracken's resignation "inaccurate."[11] CNET later reported that McCracken had told colleagues that IDG "was pressuring him to avoid stories that were critical of major advertisers."[12][13] On May 9, Crawford was transferred to another department and McCracken returned to PC World until his departure in 2008.[14]
