    Hey guys I was wondering where you guys get updates on tech news. I want to be up to date with the latest technology with a decent opinion, unlike CNN.

    I like theverge.com, loopinsight.com, arstechnica.com, and Mobile Nations websites.

    http://mashable.com for me, although lately it covers a lot of off topic stuff, but it's still a good site.

    Mashable has gone downhill. I haven't had the desire to visit that place in a very long time. I feel the same way about The Next Web too. I used to like that place, but their new layout has really ruined the experience for me.

    The Verge is made up of a few people that left Engadget and probably a few other places. I really like their editorials. They're a huge breath of fresh air considering I'm so used to the one shot/awful pieces written over at TechCrunch. They're a very quirky bunch too. On The Verge, 90 seconds, and their podcasts are fun. I think the one thing that really makes them stand out is that they don't rely on Facebook/Twitter for interaction and use their own system. There's a lot of us who keep their website open on our browsers 24/7 and comment on pretty much every news story. The forums are really fun to hang out at too. They also have a best writing of the week feature where they pull editorials from around the web for you read then or later on Pocket/Readability/whatever.

    I know that sounds like a huge advertisement, hahaha. They also have great mobile apps for Android/iPhone. For being only a site that has been around for a little over a year, they're way ahead of everyone else IMO.

    I agree with you about The Verge. Their editorials are truly amazing compared to other tech sites.

    Not necessarily a news site per se since their page is simply a portal to watch or listen to their shows, but love the TWiT network.

    Engadget and TUAW are two of my favorites. I also love LifeHacker.


    Of course....my MOST favorite would have to be the site in my signature... :p;):eek:
