Ziff Davis Inc.

(Ziff Davis, Inc., New York, www.ziffdavis.com) A leading integrated media company that serves the computer and consumer lifestyle markets. Its offerings include the PCMag.com and ExtremeTech.com websites, Gearlog gadget blog and Cranky Geeks video program. It also includes Ziff Davis Labs, which provides benchmark testing of computers and electronic devices.

Dating back to 1982, PC Magazine has been the most successful computer publication in history with every hardware and software vendor coveting a PC Magazine Award for Technical Excellence. With paper publications increasingly difficult to justify, January 2009 marked the last issue of the magazine in print, superseded by a searchable electronic version online.

In 1927, Ziff-Davis was founded in Chicago by William Ziff, Sr. and Bernard Davis. It evolved into a highly respected publishing empire that was sold to Forstmann Little & Co. in 1994. Within a year, it was acquired by Softbank. Ziff Davis Media was formed in 2000 when Willis Stein & Partners acquired it from Softbank, which sold its Ziff-Davis properties to several companies. In 2010, Ziff Davis Media was acquired by former Time executive Vivek Shah and Boston-based Great Hill Partners. See ZDNet and Ziff Davis Enterprise.
