I run a tech site. It’s just a small blog where I will occasionally post news and videos and such. I have never intended for it to be one of the huge gadget blogs, don’t consider it a ‘contender’ or anything like that. I just enjoy writing. I also run a very specific site targeted toward HTPCs and home automation, two of my hobbies. As a result I surf tech sites a couple times a month looking for cool new gadgets or software that I might be able to use or that I might want to post about.
Gadget Advisor is a relatively new site but one I seem to be going back to on occasion for the news and gadgets. What got me hooked was an article on the Logitech Harmony universal remote. Being an HTPC freak I enjoy reading about stuff like that and I will sometimes get a severe case of gadget envy at the same time. I wouldn’t use the Harmony simply because I use my own hardware/software solution that incorporates my HA stuff but if it weren’t for that it’s a pretty cool remote.
What’s nice is that it’s not just some junk site. There is one article about online backup services that I agree with and I actually use their top pick. I used to think it was stupid to backup online but now that I’ve been doing it for a few months I wouldn’t do anything else. I still do occasional backups to DVD but it’s a pain to back up 40GB of info to DVD. I don’t have the time or the patience for it.
One article that’s been at the top for a few days is about the best Firefox extensions. Doesn’t really apply to me anymore since I seem to be using Chrome almost exclusively but it’s still informative nevertheless.
Anyway, if you like tech stuff go check out the site and let me know what they think. I may start linking to their feed on one of my tech sites pretty soon.
