TechTV is no more

TechTV, www techtv.com is gone. It no longer exists. Too bad, the site had number of great tips on digital cameras and Photoshop. It's a real shame. Comcast just doesn't get it, this is one of thousand reasons why Comcast should be disappear in the dark.

Making a long story short, Comcast bought TechTV and they put together TechTV and some other similar show and created new one; it's typical downsizing, cost reduction. Some shows from TechTV continue to air, but they just made a major change in the website. As you can guess, (99% of)major corporation does not get this environment, Web; when they touch, it gets poisoned and will be destroyed ...(eventually).

It's really really bad. I was just checking the news site for the last 5 minutes or so, but there is really nothing except for flash ads and banner ads; no content, no video clip, it's just horrible.

Oh, man. I hope they don't cancel "Robot Wars!"

My 4-year-old is majorly addicted! He runs around talking about "TechTV's Robot Wars" all the time. And he turns EVERYTHING into a "robot," (eg empty cardboard boxes that get pushed around, stomped on, etc).

I'll see if I can get some. Actually, I'm amazed I don't have some already. Every time I call his name, he says, "But daddy, I don't want you to take my picture again!"

It was actually a good idea to merge the two TV stations. (TechTV and G4)

Why? Because they both showed too many reruns and had too few shows to make up their own channel, combining the two channels which are both on decently similar topics will give them a larger show variety and less reruns.

By the way, TechTV, as most of you knows, covered electronics in general basically, G4 was 24/7 gaming.
