I spend a good amount of time checking news about technology and lately I have found these tech blogs to be a big waste of time. Usually they repeat news from each other, deal with cell phones (don't care), and talk about non productivity focused tablets (like effing yoyos in middle school).
- Gizmodo - they went for the quantity over quality model
- Laptop Magazine - they mostly cover tablets and cell phones instead of laptops, they are also super filled with adverts
- GottaBeMobile - cell phone stuff I don't care about
- Slashgear - like a Gizmodo
- Netbook News - mostly news about tablets instead of netbooks
Anyone who has tried to stay up to date with the latest knows that most of the internet is spam... so eliminating these time wasters is a good thing.
