PC Magazine is the #1 Tech Mag in the Philippines


Hinge-Inquirer Publications has just posted a press release on the recent Synovate Consumer Survey for the months of June to August 2006.

Here is a snippet of the PR:

According to the Synovate survey PC Magazine Philippines reaches 157,703 readers, making it number one in the technology category. Following closely in second place is the three-issue-old Game! Magazine, the Philippines’ first online gaming magazine, with 148,873 readers. Both titles are published by Hinge Inquirer Publications (HIP), an Inquirer Group company.

The local version of PC Magazine is the recognized bible and reference publication of the computer industry here and abroad. PC Magazine Philippines incorporates the latest and most locally relevant material from its foreign counterparts, but also focuses on subject matter made by and for the Filipino PC aficionado, a combination appreciated by its readers, according to the Synovate results. Game!, on the other hand, focuses on the fastest-growing tech lifestyle category today – online gaming, particularly on locally available games. (source)

Okay, just to disclose, I have been a contributor for PC Magazine Philippines and I also do miscellaneous editorial work for GAME! Magazine. It is rewarding to belong to a technology editorial team where all three titles made it to the TOP 10.

I mentioned three magazines right? What’s the third, then? Well, Mobile Philippines of course, that ranked number 10 in the top tech magazines for the said period of June – August 2006. This is also considering that this was the time when the magazine had undergone a transition in title from “MPH” to “Mobile Philippines.”

Now how about that … 🙂

congratulation PC Mag. you really have lived to the fact of being the IT mag authority in the phils.

i still remember what jayvee had said three years back during his talk over one product launch in enterprise tower stating, “we were fiddling gadgets even when we were just fetuses…” and now, we see the making of it, Mobile Phils ranked one of the top10 mags in the country. congratulations.

and of course, there is no such job as satisfying as something that coaxed you to play and writing down what you have your opinion on it. congratulations also to Game Mag as well.
