Site closure

The Guru

Guys it is with great sadness that I announce that the Smartphonegurus.com (SPG) website will be closing with the intention to shut down operations on the 30th of June 2018. We've had a great 8 years under that name, and it total have been running way back from when tekguru.co.uk was created in December 2000, so a total of 18 years is not too bad at all.

Alas times a have moved on and smartphones are no longer niche devices requiring support but are now common commodities which most folks are now able to use without assistance. User attendance has collapsed in latter years with only the core team holding on and keeping us alive. Personally I'd wish to thank those guys for staying with the site and more importantly for becoming friends. The site and myself would not be what we are without you. It's been a fantastic ride and within that process I've been a Microsoft MVP and got involved with a great number of fantastic projects.

Anyway as we are now officially winding down I've disabled new membership registrations and turned off guest posting.

So two last things:

  • If anyone has any live subscriptions please ensure you end them by the end of June (or before if you wish us to close earlier). 
  • If anyone does want to keep in touch with us there is a closed / hidden SPG Group on Google+ if you wish to be linked in then drop me a line.

So as a great man once wrote, "So long and thanks for all the fish!"
