The EFM team love talking tech. We live it and breathe it, and use what we learn to craft better and better mobile and lifestyle accessories for our valued customers.
We don’t just love talking all things mobile technology and its future though. We enjoy reading about it too, and with so many tech blogs out there we’re never short of reading material.
Our shortlist of the 5 best technology blogs will either add to your ever-expanding tech reading list, or help you dip your toe into this constantly evolving industry.
Even if you’re a novice in the world of tech blogs, you’ve probably heard of (or had a read of) Gizmodo.
This online giant, launched in 2002, adds new and interesting articles constantly. While mobile technology and gadgets are just one of their areas of interest, you can also find invaluable information on computers, science, cameras, cars and games on the US and Australian sites. There’s also a heap of user reviews, making purchasing your next device easier. Their slogan is simple - “we love technology”.
Example article: “Pope endorses ClickToPray App”
TechCrunch is a huge name in the technology news sphere, discussing everything from business to startups to the hottest news straight from the Mecca of tech, the Silicon Valley. Founded in 2005, TechCrunch looks at our favourite industry from a more analytical angle, perfect for those of us who always keep one eye on new and exciting brands. Three million Facebook followers can’t be wrong.
Example article: “Robots learn to grab and scramble with new levels of agility”
While not as much of a household name as our top two, TechVibes is as deserving of the attention it garners. Featuring industry news and even jobs, this Canadian website has grown from strength to strength since its inception in 2002. It’s even set up its own awards show for “the best and brightest in the tech space.” Paying it forward - we like their style!
Example article: “Drones are the latest tech powering Canada’s mining industry”
Wired’s place on many lists of the best tech blogs is a given - and for good reason. This American website, which has regional versions for foreign markets such as the UK, puts a firm focus on business, culture, science, mobile accessories, security and even transportation. Wired is a godsend for tech heads, and they are as into smartphone technology as we are - so we obviously approve!
Example article: “Is big tech merging with Big Brother? Kinda looks like it”
Futurism deserves a nod for its hot off the press technology and science news as well as its direct focus on how it’s shaping the future. If you live for sci-fi and what the future will look like as technology advances, Futurism is the online destination for that insight.
Example article: “Holograms are resurrecting dead musicians, raising legal questions”.
