    I didn't know this.
    Good for forum visibility (traffic) too.

    One thing I have noticed different and that I LOVE about TPU is that NPU don't encompass my whole browser window. I know with that layout it may not be possible but if it can be changed please do. :)

    Oh yeah, congrats!! I will check it multiple times daily as I do with TPU. :) :toast:


    Haha I just noticed I now have two *PU mini circle logos right next to each other (without a name next to them) in my bookmarks bar. Looks like red and green christmas bulbs, fitting, and intentional? :O 8) :p

    looks great, brillant idea keeping this place targeting PC enthusiast content and another site for the massive amount of other tech around, cant wait to browse thumbs up :)

    I smell another site added to my home page

    Nice work Wiz. I am liking it and added it to my homepage. Btw do you plan to bring a redesign to TPU? I think it deserves a redesign. It didnt get a major redesign ever since its launch.

    changed it so that the original page content reappears when you clear all text from the search field

    once we got everything else figured out, i'll look into that

    A pole on mobile OS but no mention of Windows Phone? Site seems biased already. Seriously, Symbian is on its way out and what mainstream phone have we seen with Bada?

    I really like the scope (large diversity of "channels") that is planned for the site.

    Suggestion for the future when more channel content comes into play :
    Make each of the four rows that display content channel specific, and give them forward and back buttons so that a user can scroll sideways through the channel's content.
    Allow the users' to customize which 4 channels show up by default on the home page for them (using cookies or whatever).

    The home page is a bit busy at the moment, but I am confident the web designers and developers will address aesthetic issues as time goes by.

    I just love the current site design and everything about it. Just add something like video to hardware reviews and it's perfect :)

    Front page seems to have taken a page from The Verge, without the crazy color schemes. It also introduces to the reader a little information overload on the front page, though that would depend on the reader if he/she would prefer that or something else.

    Anyways, good job TPU! Huge potential for NPU.

    I'll stick to my usual Engadget/The Verge/GSMArena for my gadget news, doesn't mean we can't have another one. All the best with the new site guys :toast:

    The website might be great, but to me it is like a very usual platform (not wanting to say copied idea from other websites)
    The website should have been special somehow
    Even though your success is 100% guaranteed

    Awesome it works much better now. :toast:

    I would think that the articles on the home page need to take a new approach for organizational and flow purposes. Just my opinion.

    Now that you have officially "announced" and therefore "launched" it... you really need to get the content flowing. It becomes quickly stale when it stagnates. Only a few articles are appearing day... or at least so it seems from the landing page. And today, Saturday, it is the same content as when I looked yesterday. That's not OK for a consumer focused site where you will get most hits on evenings and weekends. Get your content aggregation working much faster.

    I also think you need to rebrand. Nextpowerup is very ok to the TPU community. To the wider world? Not.

    Btw the page wont open 100% on a 1024x768 display

    Also, as a presentation to get work, look at my website.
    If you are interested pm me

    that's by design. we decided for fixed width this time and wanted to cater to more modern screens, instead of having a super narrow piece of content in the middle like other sites.

    the site is still usable on 1024

    that really alienates mobile users, as well as netbook users. my netbook is 1024x600, and my iPad is 1024x768.
    lemonadesoda says thanks.
