Wired is a monthly American magazine that has an online edition, Wired.com. The topics covered by it are related to the impact of technology on culture, economy and politics. The content also features news about design, science and tech gadgets. It is owned by the publishing conglomerate Condé Nast Publications and published in San Francisco, California.

Engadget

Engadget is a multilingual technology blog network that offers daily news about mobile gadgets and consumer electronics. In its development, the form of the website is getting closer to that of an online magazine. The website is considered as one of the best tech blogs. It is owned by AOL.

Lifehacker and Gizmodo

I am presenting these two blogs together not only because they have a common owner in the face of Gawker Media but also because they perfectly complement each other in my opinion. Lifehacker covers topics mainly related to software and lifestyle, often presenting articles taken from Gizmodo when it comes to tech gadgets. Gizmodo gained great popularity in 2010 when a scandal broke out in connection with the loss of the iPhone prototype in a bar. The phone had fallen into the hands of Gizmodo’s editors. We know how sensitive Apple is regarding the protection of all details relating to iPhone.

The Verge

It is an American tech and news media network operated by Vox Media. Although it started operating in 2011, it has managed to gain popularity and to establish itself. The media offers news, product reviews, podcasts, broadcasts and an entertainment show.

The Next Web

This blog offers tech news and covers all topics related to new technologies, business news and tech culture as well as news related to the latest tech gadgets.

Digital trends

The website has set the goal of building up your lifestyle, of course, with the help of tech news and mobile computer technologies, gaming devices, home theatre equipment and more. It contains information about cars, music and photography.

NY Times' Bits Blog

It is a blog to one of the most popular newspapers covering news related to start-up companies, tech leaders like Apple and Google, corporate news, government initiatives in the field of high technology and everything related to how the Internet is changing the way we are living and working.

CNN.com Tech

This is a place for tech news without specialised and complex terminology where technology meets the life of the ordinary reader. Its content presents in plain language a wide range of topics related to computers, innovative technologies and the Internet.
 
I do not claim that the list presented above is finished and complete. It only raises the curtain to a world which, as is clear, will become even more important in our lives next year. It is clear that the items of tech news are taking leading positions and media that we mostly relate to social and political news are starting to present them.

I will briefly introduce you to two popular journalists. One of them is known for his publications in specialised editions and has his own successful tech blog and the other is writing and making reports for a large media that is not specialised in tech news. I will present them through their own interesting and topical publications.

Tom Foremski



In 2004, Tom Foremski was the first journalist to leave a major newspaper, namely the Financial Times, to start living as a blogger and freelance journalist. He launched the popular blog Silicon Valley Watcher, which analyzes and covers the rapid development in the high-tech valley.

In one of his recent publications, Tom deals with the commercialisation of social media and with the fact that Facebook and Google are tending to sell traffic to company pages within the respective social network. When money buys traffic, user experience is of poor quality and very mediocre, as concluded by the journalist. It is interesting to note the prediction that the World Wide Web, as we know it, built of multiple pages, is gradually disappearing. The content carried by social media and mobile applications is changing the nature of the Internet due to the expansion of mobile technology in the face of smartphones and tablets.

Dan Simon

A CNN correspondent in the Silicon Valley, Dan Simon aims to inform CNN viewers and readers on the latest developments in the field of technology. Dan began his career as a freelance journalist and then subsequently joined CNN and has been its correspondent in San Francisco for five years already. In 2011, he turned to tech news.

Here Dan Simon talks about Amazon's plans to use flying drones for delivery to its customers. The publication, in addition to the technological dimensions and innovative thinking, makes us think about the displacement of people by robots, a fear we have faced mainly in fantasy novels and films.
