Town Hall: How Do You Want M2M, B2B, and Other Industry News?

One area we’re looking to expand heavily into, is B2B and M2M news. PhoneNews.com has cornered a bit of a niche in catering both to industry insiders, and to consumers at the same time. While we report to consumers, we report in a manner that continuously improves the industry. That’s why some of our highest-volume readers are the carriers and manufacturers themselves.

So, we have a bit of a difficult decision to decide, and we’d like your input. Covering inside-industry news could quite easily bore you to death. Our current plan is to create a separate, sub-site that provide news that consumers don’t care about, but the industry does.

We know this is a fine line to walk. Some of you care about spectrum swaps, tower co-location, and the latest M2M applications. Most of you, probably not. We’re going to provide a lot more of that coverage soon… but we want your input on where to put it.

Do you agree with our current plan to put this expanded coverage in a separate place off the main page? Or, do you want to see it all, in it’s often-times-very-dull-and-boring glory? Sound off in the comments.

    Chris,

    We’re all big boys and girls here. I think we could handle any news you put out, all on the same site.

    You guys get more flak from your readers than any other site I follow, and you handle it well. Keep up the good work.

    To be honest, I used to love this site (and its sister sites). I enjoyed coming here for regular opinions from Chris and insider information. However, now I go mostly to Gizmodo for the tech news I like, since the stories won’t show up until much later here. I moved CentralGadget to the bottom of my feeds, as I guess that isn’t updated anymore.

    I don’t care if what you say matters to the industry or consumers, as long as I learn things I didn’t know previously.

    So what happened? I’m curious about the crud you guys have been hit with.

    It should all be on the main page, and maybe you can figure out a way to allow users who login a way to “filter” and “customize” the content to their liking. I have a love hate relationship with your site Chris. I respect what you are trying to do but sometimes feel you go further then you should and allow your opinions and views to taint your reporting and thus your journalistic integrity. I would really like to discuss this and a few ideas I have with you at your leisure. The contact information above is accurate.
