Internal struggles at Tom's Hardware go public
Tom's Hardware has changed in the Avram Piltch era. In recent months, some veteran staff have jumped ship and many others are desperately looking for a life raft before the full implementation of Tom's Hardware 2.0, a Google SEO driven site. These sites, like Tom's Guide, don't break new stories but rather identify trending topics and then quickly build content to match. Purch has an internal team scrubbing the internet each day that assigns stories to different teams inside the company.
The Tom's Hardware 2.0 formula has not sat well with veteran journalists and editors that continued the twenty-two year legacy of Tom Pabst.
