UK’s Dennis Buying PC Geeks Site

UK magazine publisher Dennis is buying computer review and mod tutorial site Started in 2000, the site focuses on hardware reviews and features as well as PC modifications, and also has a forum. Dennis will add it to brands that include, KnowYourMobile and the digital-edition iGizmo; the publisher already had some of’s bases covered, but not so much modding. It’s Dennis’ first deal since buying The First Post this summer to give some online legs to weekly news review mag The Week, and is yet another instance of a small, homespun web publication becoming valuable to a big media player – was initially run by enthusiasts and didn’t turn professional until five years after its debut.
