Computer Shopper Magazine (in its 26th year of print), a monthly guide to new technology - had his time and function (and we remember the time, when the local postman refused to delivery, because the book was to heavy).
Barry Briggs (President of CNET) tells us, that the magazine has been sold because - being the only print magazine at CNET - it could not make it to the full potential within the company, but insists that Computer Shopper remained the premiere magazine for technology enthusiasts in a highly competitive and rapidly-changing industry.
CNET Networks will continue its focus on interactive content. (Release on financal result 2005)

The transaction is effective immediately, financial details were not disclosed.
