With the spectacular growth of BleepingComputer it has become evident that the scope of interests has expanded. Emerging technologies have contributed to the expansion of interests as well. With this in mind we have decided to add a completely new forum category, to modify a lesser used, existing forum and add two new forums to all ready existing categories.

The new forum category is called Gadgets. you will now see it listed on the main forum page between the Hardware and Software forums. The new sub forums for that category are Cell Phones, iPod & MP3 Players and GPS Devices.

The modified and lesser used forum is one that used to be known as Apple/DOS/PDA/Other. As you can see we have removed Apple from this forum. Apple computers and Apple related operating systems can now be discussed in their own forum now known as Mac OS.

Last but not least, as I mentioned earlier, we have grown and our base of interests have expanded. We have decided to diverge a bit and add a completely new type of forum in the General Topics area. This is the new Home Improvement and Repair forum.

Since these are brand new forums, not all have been 'seeded' with existing topics from elsewhere. So you may see a forum that is completely empty and in need of a post. Only the new Mac OS forum has been 'seeded' as of this post. We hope you will enjoy our new changes and find them to be a useful and positive direction for BleepingComputer. We hope that you like our new Gadgets Category and that the new forums cover topics that you may find interesting and fun to discuss.

The staff here also would like to thank all of our members for making BleepingComputer such a wonderful and welcoming site for those visitors who need help. THANK YOU to each and every one of our BleepingComputer members!!!!

Enjoy your new forums.
