The Trusted Reviews Group has agreed to acquire the well-respected tech site www.Recombu.com
Recombu.com was founded in 2009 as a mobile news, reviews and comparison site by Jamie Harwood and Andrew Lim as part of UK Web Media. Since launching the site has been home to an all-star team of writers and videographers behind it, including former Top Gear host Rory Reid and YouTube “TechSpurt”, Chris Baraclough.
The site will be relaunched as part of the Trusted Reviews Group and will be covering all the latest tech news, reviews, and deals, but with a few new additions.
Product reviews will be unscored with the best buys highlighted as “Gold” purchases and the true best-of-the-best getting the hallowed “Platinum” badge.
Best of will be reader voted, letting our community of readers decide which products they are most excited about.
The site will be run by Trusted Reviews’ editor Alastair Stevenson, who’ll be backed up by deputy editor Max Parker, commercial editor Thomas Deehan and reviews and evergreen writer Adam Speight.
Trustedreviews.com was acquired back in May under a new subsidiary company of Incisive media, led by Managing Director, Chris Dicker. Commenting on the deal, Chris Dicker said “It has been a very busy few months with moving away from TI Media but also looking at future strategic growth areas. We see Recombu.com as a complementary business to TrustedReviews.com and Whatdigtialcamera.com but one that has heritage in broader verticals.”
