In this article, I’ve compiled seven such tech publishers and websites that you should follow to keep your passion fulfilled and help you gain more knowledge on technology:
So, let's get on with these tech websites one by one:
1. The Verge
Launched in the year 2011, today, The Verge has become one of the widely-read and globally recognized technology news website. The website is based in the U.S. and is owned by Vox Media.
Authors at The Verge mostly publish feature stories, news, product reviews, guides, etc. in easy-to-understand language. The modern look and design of the website also add up to your easy and flexible reading experience.
Apart from the latest tech happenings in the US and around the world, the website also publishes entertainment content. What I like on the website is the clear category of all types of content that you can read, such as 'Science', 'Entertainment', 'Reviews', etc.
Further, the website currently has around 2.6 million followers on Twitter who actively engage with the content shared by The Verge. You should follow this website if you want to read about topics related to hardcore tech, product reviews, entertainment news, etc.
The second website I have on the list is TechRadar. This is yet another popular technology publication but originating from the UK. Here, you'll mostly find content on tech news and reviews.
Although based in the UK, they have several teams of writers and editors working from Australia and India.
The best thing about this site is that it automatically detects your location and based on that fetches the relevant content and deals.
It is owned by Future plc and was launched back in the year 2008.
For example, if you’re visiting the publication from Australia, it will show up the Australian version for you without having to toggle it.
If you want to know in detail about the product reviews, guides, and in-depth stories, I’d strongly suggest you bookmark this website and start reading regularly.
You can easily find various categories about which you want to read articles on. These include TVs, laptops, gaming, car tech, wearables, and of course, smartphones.
If you want to know about the latest technology and business trends, then TechCrunch can be an ideal website for you. TechCrunch is an American website that publishes content related to startups and technology.
TechCrunch is not for every tech enthusiast out there. It caters to a specific audience and that audience mostly reads Startup and Technology news.
Here, you’ll find an in-depth analysis of the hot topics related to a product or technology. The website has the main office located in San Francisco.
It was launched in June 2005 and is currently owned by AOL and Verizon Media.
The website has a massive fan following of over 10 million tech enthusiasts from all over the world. It’s due to the awesome tech content they already have and publishing it for many years.
You must follow the website if you want to stay updated with the technology and startup news.
4. Digital Trends
The fourth website where you can keep an eye for everything technology is Digital Trends. As the name suggests, on this website you will find exciting and informative pieces on tech news, product reviews, great how-tos, guides, etc.
It majorly covers news related to lifestyle products and information on various consumer electronics products.
I’m sure that once you start reading this website, you’ll get awesome how-tos and descriptive articles on various exclusive devices and software. Further, they also offer great deals on gadgets and smartphones.

For all those who want to consume India-centric tech content and don’t want to miss out on important updates from the global tech world, you shouldn't miss following Beebom.
6. XDA Developers
Just don't go by the website name.
Although they call themselves founded by developers for developers, it is actually useful for every tech enthusiast. If you're a smartphone enthusiast like me and want to get updated with the latest and useful news on Android, then you must bookmark this website.
Not only they offer great in-depth pieces, but they're also among the first in reporting the leaks and rumors.
The best thing about the website? They have a separate section called 'Forums' in which you can find how-tos, guides, popularity, etc. of a specific device.
Based on the popularity and things that others have shared about a smartphone, you'll decide whether to go for it or not. It's also a great section to solve a problem that you find to be facing with your device.
7. The Hacker News
The seventh website I have for you is The Hacker News (THN). Again, don't go by the name, it is a legitimate website. In fact, they have a verified Twitter account.
Anyways, talking about the website, you could have guessed that they produce content related to hacking. And that is absolutely right.
THN can be your one-stop solution if you want to read news and articles related to the latest cyberattacks and data breaches from around the world. It is also a great website if you want to learn more about cybersecurity and its related fields.
The website was launched in the year 2010 and has been publishing the content since then to educate people on the best and safe use of the Internet.
Based in India, THN currently has around 8 million monthly readers, coming from all sorts of industries and fields. THN has grown to be the internationally recognized website on hacking and cyber attacks.
I have recently started reading the website, and I think I'm enjoying the type of content they're delivering. You should bookmark this right now if you have a slightest of interest in cybersecurity or hacking news.
