Top 10 Technology Websites

If you are someone like me, a professional tech blogger and an aspiring technology brat, then you too may be on the constant insatiable hunt for the top-shelf, most substantially sound technology site. And let’s face it, it is sometimes difficult to truly sort through the subpar from the extraordinaire with how saturated the market is with the prolific amount of the run-of-the mill, overly ordinary blogs currently flooding the internet. Therefore, I took it upon myself (your welcome) to sift through all the rot, mundane material to find the “cream of the crop” of tech websites. Mainly, I did this selfishly to have better sources to draw my research from in the long-run. However, I’m also interested in supporting my global community with quality reading material. So stop wasting your precious reading hours on mindless web surfing for salient source material and start actually… reading! Below are the top 10 (truly) best technology websites you’ll find.

 

LifeHacker

A simple, no frills, direct technology website. The content is well written and original, which is hard to come by. Apart from tech news, it has an extensive array of subjects ranging from gadgets, business tips, product deals and consumer tidbits, as well as productivity techniques. There are some articles peppered throughout the site one would expect to see in a “Psychology Today” magazine such Patrick Allan’s write up on “How to control your temper before you loose it“. In brief, you won’t be let down.

CNET.com

Sophisticated and sleek are the first words that come to mind when entering CNET.com. Definitely catering to the high-brow, business oriented readers. CNET has a flashy (not to be confused with flash) website that retains a subtle form of competence, order and class. Excellent source for users wanting to learn, as it offers a “How To” drop down menu for it’s readers.

Engadget

What I enjoy about Engadget is the sense of authenticity. Their articles are not recycled from other sites. When reading any one of their copious write-ups, it seems as though the writers are really doing the foot work. When it comes to sampling and reviewing products, these guys put the time in. Great place to go for gadgets and reviews.

Ars Technica

Something I really appreciate about this blog is the simplicity in the navigation bar. Often times with many tech sites it seems they have so much to say and share they will bombard the reader with anything and everything all at once. However, with Ars Technica all their articles are neatly compartmentalized into clear, concise categories. Whether it be information technology, business, gaming, hacking or reviews, this site is bound to satiate your proclivity for hard earned amusement.

Gizmodo

While the blog layout might seem a bit disorganized, the voice behind the writing is poignant and savvy. The best part about the content on this blog is the witty humor. If you are a tech geek who is looking for some more textured, personalized content, where you can actually hear the voice behind the written word, Gizmodo might just meet your fancy!

All Things Digital

All Things Digital is a Wall Street Journal technology blog. Well organized and the go-to for more information-hungry tech nerds. Articles are written by reputable sources the educated reader can trust. Writing is extensive and thought provoking with excellent opinions and commentary pieces. One of my favorite features on this blog is how it offers a “Companies” section, allowing the reader to find specific coverage on any major tech company.

Boy Genius Report

More of a blog than a developed website, the Boy Genius Report makes it’s content accessible to both the everyday internet troll as well as the hardwired tech nerd. Their topics run the gamut of business, cars, ebooks, gaming, hardware, opinions and celebrities. The review section encompasses a wide array of products, with a particular focus on Samsung and Apple.

Download Squad

A Huffington Post technology blog that provides up-to-date news coverage on big news in technology. Great source for those who are already admirers of The Huffington Post. While it provides pointed news in tech, it also publishes a handful of more eclectic articles that one wouldn’t expect to run into on a tech website/blog. One of its most admirable attributes is it’s reviews on downloadable applications of Windows, Mac, Linux and mobile devices.

Electronista

Advertises itself as a source that covers “gadgets for geeks”. Provides news, reviews, forums and services in a very basic and clear delivery. A bit of a “no bullshit” website. Not for the pop-culture techies – no glitter or frills are found here.

Wired

A little quirky, but without a doubt interesting, Wired is full of eccentrics and variety. You never know what you might come across in any of their featured sections. Whether it be a review of an iphone design or a design of a ziplock bag, Wired will most likely have it covered. This site draws interest from the rationalist, to the innovator, to the obscure tech rule breaker.
