I'm sure I'm not your only reader -- but I have to wonder how many readers actually want to re-read the same "news" several times a month -- and how many 2012 readers want to read a "news" article that was written in 2010 (or earlier), not updated, and has been incorrect for many months before you reposted it for the third or fourth time.
The basic problem centers on two facts:
1. "Tech" information is only valuable if it is accurate
2. "Newsletters" are only valuable if they contain NEW material. (That is what the NEW in NEWS means)
Lately Tech Republic has been scoring rather low on both counts.
