Join the experts who read Tom's Hardware for the inside track on enthusiast PC tech news — and have for over 25 years. We'll send breaking news and in-depth reviews of CPUs, GPUs, AI, maker hardware and more straight to your inbox.
What does this even have to do with tech? This site is about computing - not modern lifestyle, like TomsGuide.Reply
Thanks for the feedback. We define Tom's Hardware as a site for tech enthusiasts, many of whom like to build things other than PCs and / or share those experiences with their kids. In the weeks ahead, you'll be seeing more content that appeals to makers and to parents.Reply
Many of the projects on here are tech-related (for example, the Lego Batmobile is programmable). We're trying to reach out to people with new types of content and see how this goes. One of our new core values is "fun." If we see people aren't reading stories about a new we're trying, we'll adjust accordingly.
In the weeks ahead, I might stop following this site. Anandtech has a broader computing focus, anyhow. I never could get Toms even to review any of the growing trend of SFF PCs based on Celerons or Pentium Silver. Some of those could be good HTPCs or for home automation. It's like Toms Hardware has no interest in anything besides gaming (and mining) PCs, these days.20985699 said:Thanks for the feedback.

I have also suggested adding some coverage of home servers. That's a whole DIY area that's been completely neglected by this site, for years.
And I can't remember the last time I saw any reviews of wi fi routers, on here. That's some information I could actually use right now, in fact.
My only complaint about that was you barely scratched the tech aspects. The article was free of any specifications & details not available on their website. There are moders and probably a few hackers on this site who might like to know what's under the hood.20985699 said:Many of the projects on here are tech-related (for example, the Lego Batmobile is programmable).
Speaking of neglected areas, what about the charts?Reply
If someone has CPU or GPU X and wants to know whether it's worth upgrading to Y, the Charts were great for that.
Good point. Working on revising the hierarchy pages and doing new articles on when to upgrade.Reply
"There's a model drone that doesn't actually fly."Reply
Yeah why on earth is this on Tom's Hardware?Reply
What the frik Tom's Hardware?Reply
First idiot "guides" like "how do i create partition", "how do i connect monitor", "how do i PC" and now article's completely unrelated to computer hardware?
When you gonna change the misleading "For the Hardcore PC Enthusiasts" into "Just another pseudo PC tech news site loaded with obnoxious ads that's about everything and nothing just to rack up views and funds for country restricted giveaways that you will never be allowed to participate in"?
Personally, I enjoyed the article.Reply
For those that want articles related to just PC stuff, here ya go! :)
What the hell?Reply
