There’s nothing worse than running a technology news site, seeing a bit of news about something important, going to the official company Web site to look for the press release in their media section, and not finding anything other than old press releases. What possible excuse is there for the press release section of a major corporation to not be updated immediately when a press release is sent out?
I’ve seen this happen time and time again, and even when I get a press release by email I’ll usually want to link to the full thing online. When I email the PR person back asking them where it is on their Web site, the response I usually get is “Oh, we’ll have it up in a few days”. Not acceptable in the world we live in today.
