I CAN’T REALLY believe that it’s already August and 2020 has almost slipped by. My last few notes were really about the impact of Covid-19, and how the HWM and HardwareZone team has been coping. Now I can’t speak about other markets, but I have been quite fascinated at how fast the tech industry has settled into the new norm.
If you’ve been reading through the past few months of HWM, you’d probably have noticed that the TEST section of the mag has been decided thin, no thanks to the pandemic’s global impact on planned launches as well as logistics to get products into market. But this month, we’ve started to see a resumption in activity for tech events as well as a semblance of normality in the supply chain. The only difference is that everything is now online (and I do pity those who crave physical contact).
So I’m happy to say that products are starting to find their way back into the hands of our editorial team - which I hope you’ll be able to tell from the increased volume in this month’s TEST section - and that we can go back to focusing on the things that matter, like beauty filters, super cars and videogames. Covid-19 might be here to stay, but so are we.
