Ziff-Davis Media's annual DigitalLife Expo – held each fall in New York City's Javits Center – is canceled this year thanks to "poor economic conditions." The last two years had a significant gaming presence (2006 and 2007) and, facing a lack of interest in the show in 2007, Ziff's "apparent strategy was to put more of a focus on gaming for the 2008 edition" according to CNET. DigitalLife Vice President Paul O'Reilly said in an e-mailed statement, "Hopefully, a bigger and stronger DigitalLife will return in 2009."

So, if you had September 25-28 circled in your 2008 Hot Men of Ziff-Davis calendar, we'd recommend you spend that time with some of this fall's bigger games. Seriously, what were you thinking anyway? September has Rock Band 2, Spore, Star Wars: The Force Unleashed, and Mercenaries 2 (on August 31). You'll be quite busy.
