Presenting NextPowerUp

Presenting NextPowerUp, our sister tech-publication in the works, designed with a bigger canvas. TechPowerUp established itself as one of the top PC hardware publications thanks to our pursuit for quality reviews and relentless news delivery. We decided it was time to put these core ideals to use, in addressing the much larger consumer electronics and gadgets markets, without disturbing TechPowerUp's focus on PC enthusiast content, one of its hallmarks.

NextPowerUp is designed to keep you up to speed on the latest in over 20 markets (and growing), each with its own content channel, and editors hand-picked for them. These include Audio (personal, home, professional, concert), Business, Cinema (filming, production, exhibition), Desktops (pre-built desktop PCs), Displays (signage, projectors), Gadgets, Gaming (games, game development, gaming industry, consoles), Internet (the business of WWW), Networking (social networking), Notebooks (notebooks, Ultrabooks, netbooks), Phones (of all shapes and sizes), Photo & Video (cameras of all shapes and sizes), Politics (industry soap-opera), Robots (outside assembly lines), Science (popular science, space exploration), Software, Storage, Tablets, Televisions (TVs and technologies built around them), Transportation (wheels that don't run on fossil fuels), and Wireless (Cellular carriers, commercial WiFi).

Sounds good? We're looking for talented and motivated people who would like to join us on our journey into the post-PC era. There are various positions open:
  • Writers for news, articles, editorials, and interviews, in any single (or a combination of) channel(s) listed above,
  • Channel Editors who along with writing, can marshal writers and oversee their work in a particular channel of their area of expertise,
  • Web Designers who work with our web developers to incrementally improve the design, usability, and functionality of the site,
Working for us pays, and can be as materially rewarding as it is intellectually challenging. We are a virtual corporation, and working for us (full-time or part-time) will not require you to move. Interested (and serious) candidates can write to btarunr[at]techpowerup[dot]com with CVs, and answers to the following questionnaire:

1. In less than 270 characters (use a word processor to count), come up with a crisp, catchy, and concise paragraph on any one of the following recent developments:2. To supplement your CV, informally tell us a bit about yourself (to the extant you're comfortable with, we won't judge you on that). Tell us how you developed a passion for the area(s) of interest you'd like to work with us for.

just loaded it up to check. looks good on the first gen ipad.


i'd say it looks better on the ipad than it does on PC, which might actually make sense with its different target demographic.

I love creative writing and feel that i have a relatively good understanding and command of the english language, as well as a fairly comprehensive technological background. I have been frightfully busy just this last week, however, i am in the process of creating a submittal for one of the job opportunities mentioned in the original post.

It's a very exciting time right now to be a member here, and it's more than a privelege to have TPU offer us members such a fantastic opportunity to get involved!

How could one not be impressed i ask?

Kind regards from David.

I'm planning on sending in an application soon. It's the end of my University semester right now so I'm getting hammered with assignments and exams, after that I will send something in.
