Now days there are lot of how-to websites launches from big companies. On May 05, 2008, I listed down Three best How-to websites: Quamut.com, About.com, and Howstuffworks.com launched by companies like Barnes & Noble, Inc., The New York Times Company and Discovery Communications respectively. But these sites are general and cover almost all areas.
Today, I am talking about Pc.com from Intel Corporation. It provides us valuable resources on computers and the amazing things you can do with them. In this site you will find informative articles, news, videos, and more. It also has shop section where you will find Intel processor-based computers.
“Today, consumers are forced to visit multiple sites to track down information and they often rely on the sales person at their local computer store for a recommendation,” says Matt Robley, PC.com site strategist in the Sales and Marketing Group (SMG). “Our goal is to simplify the process and provide consumers with one place to go learn about technology and have their questions answered online.” Here’s what makes PC.com different from the approximately 47 jillion other technology sites that offer PC info of one kind or another. Pc.com is a simple one-stop-shop site that among other features, offers:
- Third-party ratings and advice on PC models
