PC Advisor joins the Netvibes Universe

IDG UK added to worldwide RSS champion

Thanks to a new partnership between PC Advisor’s publisher IDG and personalised homepage pioneer Netvibes, you can now keep up with all our stories via RSS feed with a special customisable Netvibes module.

Click on the Netvibes link in PC Advisor's left-hand navigation panel, and you'll get a special "Universe" that brings together and delivers on a single Netvibes page all of PCA’s rich online media, including RSS feeds, websites, podcasts, videos, blogs, photos, stores and widgets, which can be remixed according to each user’s personal preferences and interests.

You can move these feeds about the page, remove ones that aren't of interest and add from a wide range of world-leading content providers, such as the BBC, Guardian, Time, Channel 4, and Wired.

IDG UK joins these content providers at Netvibes, with Techworld, Macworld, ComputerworldUK and CIO also providing top-quality tech news feeds. Other feed providers include The International Herald Tribune, Die Welt, Les Echos, Le Figaro, Le Monde, L'Equipe, 20 Minutes, Elle France, El Pais, El Mundo and Rockol.it in Europe; Agile Media, ChinaVenture, eNet, HiPiHi HoodongWiki and Sports CN in Asia; and USNews and World Report, Topix, USA Today, Entertainment Tonight, Glam.com, The Washington Post, ContentNext Media, and the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation in North America.

“This is concrete proof that the future of all media lies in deep personalisation. No other Internet company can claim as many officially branded content partnerships in this many countries and languages,” said Tariq Krim, CEO and founder of Netvibes. “What does this mean for audiences? Your favourite content, your way.”

“Personalisation, customisation and interoperability between content platforms is a reality of today’s Web. By partnering with Netvibes in Europe, we are widening our reach and offering new and existing users the ability to access IDG content via Netvibes’ exciting new Universe feature, which aggregates RSS content from our leading brands such as Computerworld, Techworld, Macworld and PC Advisor into customisable, manageable and themed modules,” said Kit Gould, managing director at IDG UK.

"Channel 4 is committed to making its content available across multiple distribution platforms so our users can access it whenever they want,” commented Louise Brown, Head of Operations at Channel 4 New Media. “Netvibes is leading the way in helping users receive personalised, relevant content when, where and how they want it and we are delighted to be working with them on innovative ways of making content from the entire Channel 4 portfolio easily available online."
