theres nothing new and nothing original about the whole site. its copycat thru and thru.
this has nothing to do with you, thats just the first thing i thought of when i saw the site.
start over, theres so many kool things that could be done with that url.

I'm thinking hardcore tech reviews: hardware, software

Or... current technology happenings that are like underground... development of new hardware or crazy space exploration crap, there is a Radio Show here locally called Tech New Mexico and they do troubleshooting, hardware reviews, interviews, all kinds of neat shit.

I agree... waste of a nice domain.

im not going hard on him, i just am telling him im not going to critique his site cause it is the default skin for virtuanews, so its not his. i mostly look at design, i would go to content, but that is not his either.

Chris:
I plan to offer reviews into the existing site.

BBN:
I am going to redesign it; we did this skin to release to people at VirtuaNews, something away from the default skin.

I am converting some skins to ipb:

Be original and get a team of people who can make a site from scratch man.

On another note, VirtuaNews uses XML feeds and parses them. Why don't you take the XML feed, parse it yourself, and you choose your own headlines. If you do that you could concentrate on headlines your site would be interested in. I think your site as a whole is bought. Nothing original.
