    Engadget for almost everything. I hardly even actually read Macrumors.com anymore - I just go straight to forums.macrumors.com and solely use the forums.

    TheVerge. Only if I'm specifically looking for something not covered by MR.

    The Verge, but Ars Technica reviews science articles and for me is more valuable.

    I banned Gizmodo since the iPhone 4 thing, and Engadget has no charisma after Topolsky left to start The Verge

    I use The Verge more but if I could only pick one it'd be difficult, although I do prefer the VergeCast and the Verge Mobile Show and the 1-10 scale in their reviews

    i share the same opinion when it comes to engadget.

    curious on why there isn't much love for techno buffalo.

    to me, not a fan of rettingers review style. I would put pocketnow over technobuffalo.

    I generally go to The Verge for other tech news not related to Apple, but when it comes to phone reviews I prefer TechnoBuffalo. I think Jon is a really good reviewer and he actually has some personality, so the reviews don't seem like they drag on.

    I lurk on MR the most but I prefer gizmado for gaming while for other things I use Techno Buffalo.

    Verge and Anandtech but Flipboard brings up some of the others in the technology category.

    I choose Engadget, simply because the layout of the website is the easiest to follow. The articles took a hit for the worse a year or so back when a lot of the original staff left, but I've noticed they've gotten better recently.

    I really like Jon's phone reviews. For tech news I come here for Apple, Android Central for android, and Engadget for a little of both.

    I had never heard of either, but after checking out both sites I like The Verge better. And added it to my bookmarks as well. Thanks.

    Me neither. I read Mac news on other sites. I come here just to hang out in the forums. I've been here for ~10 years, so there's no point changing!

    This website has one of the most interesting, outgoing, and intelligent communities on the internet. My personal experience. :D

    I get most my news from Engadget and IGN. For reviews, I really like the Verge but I absolutely hate the layout for general news.

    I used to frequent Pocketnow, Brandon Miniman does excellent video reviews (the best, in my opinion). I stopped when Brandon stopped doing reviews.

    For forums I split my time between here and notebookreview.

    I have been reading Gizmodo for two years, but following the newest comment system redesign (introduced yesterday), I left and settled on The Verge. It reminds me of the Giz of old, actually, with good, in depth articles.
