The Newsweek network, Part 5: Winavo and Bizu

Here are some IBT Media sites that are no longer functioning, although they can still be viewed in archived form:

1.  Winavo.com 

Winavo.com was a tech site, and archived pages show the latest posts were made in March, 2014.  The About page said:
Winavo is a technology blog dedicated to the latest PC news, product launches and the intersection of all Microsoft platforms. We aim to provide the latest information about Windows 8 smartphones and tablets. We also cover the latest Xbox and Xbox Live news.
The header had links to DroidReport and MacRage, so it appears Winavo formed a trio of tech sites for IBT Media:


An old Contact page lists four editors and reporters:  Michael Nunez, Heriberto “Lobo” Rivera, Jordan Mammo, and Eric Chiu.  For some reason, the same four names appear on the Contact page for NatureTimes.com, which was a bit confusing when I first stumbled onto it.

Another defunct website is:

2.  Bizu.tv

Bizu.tv was dedicated to streams of business videos.  An archived page from April 4, 2015, says:
Alas, dear friends, Bizu.tv is no more. 
Thank you to our viewers, content providers and advertisers over the last two years, it has been a great ride.
Bizu.tv was featured in the 2014 IBT media kit, on a page describing video opportunities.
