Follow Friday 5: Tech News
Each week I pick 5 key folk to follow on the web (and Twitter) based on a selected topic.
Keeping up on the latest technology isn’t as easy as we’d like. Fortunately, there are some key sites that keep us in-the-know. From the latest mobile devices to computer software, these guys feed us the news, reviews and opinions of key players in the industry.
Note: I much prefer getting my tech news via RSS. However, if you don’t mind getting fed the headlines as they happen in your Twitter stream, give them a follow.
- Engadget (@engadget) These guys write a great deal about mobile devices. Why should you care? Because you want to know how to better cater to customers. Also, why not use reviews and data to make your own decisions? Visit site ->
- Mashable (@mashable) While their Twitter account posts everything “Mashable”, there are great tech articles posted daily. Or, you can avoid the extra stuff and just visit the Tech & Gadgets section of the Mashable web site.
- Gizmodo (@gizmodo) This controversial source (their the ones who possessed the stolen iPhone) for tech news covers a broad spectrum. Learn about the latest Windows and Mac OS, including browsers and release notes, as well as the latest in smartphones and tablets. Visit site ->
- Wired (@wired) Wired covers a variety of topics – cars, multimedia, entertainment and tech. I find most all their articles interesting, but if you want to read specific topics, they have web site sections for Tech Biz and Gadgets.
- Lance Ulanoff (@lanceulanoff) He’s the editor-in-chief for PCMag.com. He also follows other tech stories and shares accordingly. Lance keeps me updated on the latest in PC and Mac news, as well as mobile devices and other gadgets. You can read all his PCMag.com articles here.
As always, there are plenty of folk worthy of mention. My picks are based on current trends and my experience. Got a must-follow tech-related account to share? Comment below.
