    Actually, I don't read technology blogs per se. Technology itself is not my primary interest - although I'll keep abreast of it. Rather, I am more interested in its impact on society and other matters.

    This means that I will read them for a specific reason. For example, if there are political (either national or international) or economic decisions and actions concerning tech, I will track down an article or two from a tech perspective to see what they have to say.

    Likewise, if there is a product which interests me, and I wish to find out more about it, (and it need not necessarily be an Apple product - my most recent trawl concerned Astell & Kern's MP3 player), I will take a look at some of the tech sites.

    I just use the subscriptions in Safari. The only non-primary Apple blogs I subscribe to are Re/Code and The Verge.

    There's a lot of other great tech websites out there, I just don't want to be subjected to every little article about little things. I already have all the hardware I want, I just want to read about new things that'll push it farther.

    And I found that using s RSS reader doesn't really make any sense. Most tech "news" happens during the day, isn't something that accumulates maybe more than 10 news stories on any given day, and you never read the full story most of the time.

    Reeder is very good though. I used it until I realized how much time I was wasting marking things as read and dealing with half working feeds that were nothing more than links to the full story and other articles.

    Other than this one, all mine are photography related.
