Q: What popular online tech publication delivers original, fresh, daily content based on MS Windows, Internet, and technology trends to an army of 250,000+ computer enthusiasts world-wide?
Infopackets: A History
In early 2001, infopackets.com made its online debut in the form of a weekly online publication based on MS Windows. Soon after, a series of how-to guides were compiled to help ease the ever-increasing demand of frequently asked computer questions (FAQs) from our website visitors.
As the number of guides grew larger, an online information kiosk was created. The kiosk serves two purposes: to efficiently catalogue our most sought after FAQs, and to provide visitors a means to download our guides via email in a print-friendly manner.
Our guides (affectionately known as "info packets") remain extremely popular today and account for a majority of traffic to our site -- second only to the daily swarm of traffic generated by 250,000+ returning newsletter subscribers.
Infopackets: Mission Statement
The website name infopackets is short form for "information packets," and its meaning is based upon the TCP/IP protocol: a method of communication used by computers on the Internet to transfer data between one another.
Our company name, "Computer 411," is derived from the helpful and friendly North-American three digit telephone service "411," which assists callers in acquiring on-demand information. Put together, both the company and website name exemplify our mission statement:
The goal of infopackets is to provide computer users of all skill levels with timely and well-sourced information based on MS Windows, Internet, and technology trends.
