View Full Version : Where do you follow the news?

So, as we all know, technology moves at a very fast pace. Since I'm in R&D I need to follow these advances as closely as I can.

My two favorite sites are IEEE's spectrum (http://spectrum.ieee.org/) and NewScientist (http://www.newscientist.com/).

Where do you get your tech news?

I have a number of RSS feeds on my Google.com/ig homepage:
- SlashDot - http://rss.slashdot.org/Slashdot/slashdot
- Digg - http://digg.com/rss/index.xml
- Wired - http://www.wired.com/news/feeds/rss2/0,2610,,00.xml
- TechCrunch - http://feeds.feedburner.com/Techcrunch
- CNet - http://news.com.com/2547-1_3-0-5.xml
- TechDirt - http://www.techdirt.com/techdirt_rss.xml
- LinuxToday - http://linuxtoday.com/backend/biglt.rss

Between all these it covers most news I care to see. I also have about 20 podcasts I listen to weekly, though much of the news there is outdated by the time I hear it, unless I can listen to TWIT on Monday morning.

Outside of these I try to catch MSNBC.com plus the websites for a few local newspapers for local news.

The only news I ever followed were the scientific type from Scientific American magazine.

I find tech news pretty boring, myself. PBS' Newshour is the only news program, tech or otherwise, that I watch.

I like InternetNews.com (http://www.internetnews.com/) :popcorn:

www.arstechnica.com and www.physorg.com are my two favorite websites for news, specifically tech related.

CNet/ZDnet also typically has a lot of news, but I highly dislike the blog-like news attitude I feel from a lot of their news. I typically read through the sources, ZDnet just helps make me aware of something new.
