There is a problem, we as designers have. We need to stay updated on the latest trends in web design and development. That’s time-consuming enough, but definitely mandatory. At the same time, most of us like to stay on top of the tech news not necessarily too closely related to the web, because – confess – we are all techies. Are your clients not asking you about the latest and greatest? Mine always do, expecting me to certainly know what’s up around IT. It’s a dilemma. You need to know, but have no time. Techi.com has you covered…
Techi.com: Techmeme-like Concept, but Leaner, More Focused
We have Techmeme, I hear you say. That’s true, but let’s be honest. Speaking of economically consuming only the most important tech news, Techmeme is not really where you should go to. They overwhelm you with even the tiniest bits and pieces on any given tech news. If you are like me, you’re bound to delve in and get lost in the river of information way too quickly.
Techi.com goes a different way. Our friends from WebdesignerDepot and Mighty Deals bring this resource to you. They curate not each and every source out there, but concentrate on not missing anything, while at the same time avoiding information overload. Personally I have never missed any vital tech news while following Techi.com. Give it a try. I’m sure they will convince you, too. And you’ll be surprised with how little time invested you’ll still be completely updated. Just to keep things straight: Techi.com does certainly not steal any content, but sends you over to the original source after having shown a short teaser.
Techi.com: Not Only Curating, Offering Exclusive Content Also
Besides curating the most relevant sources in the tech news universe, Techi.com has a whole army of tech writers on their payroll. These writers deliver exclusive content on a daily basis to enrichen the already good information density with in-depth analysis, discussions, insider’s thoughts and more.
The website itself is minimal. Initially you’ll see the latest articles in chronological order. With the top navigation you can directly access the exclusive articles, written by Techi staff, or go for the popular articles. A free text search field gives you access to all of Techi.com.
