What are your favorite Tech News or Science News websites?
« on: September 19, 2014, 06:30:23 AM »
I am looking for some new resources for the Weekly Tech/Science News Roundup and hope you guys may be able to point me to some lesser known, but good sources!

For my current list, I use the following list (Sometimes others, and not always all):

Tech News:
  • BBC.co.uk
  • Wired.co.uk
  • Endagadget.com
  • TechCrunch.com
  • TheRegister.co.uk
  • CNet.com
  • TechRadar.com - No longer used as they have become 99% about Apple and don't really feature much else...gets really boring really quickly.

Science News:
  • Iop.org
  • Sciencenews.org
  • Sciencedaily.com
  • BBC.co.uk
  • Newscientist.com
  • Sci-news.com
  • Science.nasa.gov
  • IFLScience.com



Sooo, you guys got any I can add to my radar?! :D - I mainly need some cool Tech News websites as I do have a fairly extensive list of Science News sites already, but...the more the merrier!

I often check Hacker News, mostly the comments, which are sometimes more insightful than the actual content linked.

(I use hckr news as an interface, because it shows submissions by time, so you can see what was posted since your last visit.)

ArsTechnica occasionally has breaking tech news. I find the site to be more interesting than some of the others listed in this thread.
