Top 5 Technology Sites

Updated on June 29, 2009


I've been an avid technology geek ever since I was a small boy. I would get my hands on just about every gadget and gizmo I could find.

I've always thought that they were cool because they help you do things that you couldn't do before in a better way.

In the age of the internet other technology geeks have emerged and they have started new sites and blogs to update other technology geeks with cool news on gadgets. The following are, in my opinion, the best 5 sites for a tech geek to follow.


Gizmodo is a great site for your technology news and stories, where it updates its stories every few minutes.

What makes this site stand out from the rest is because it adds humor and sarcasm to its writing, while maintaining its serious side.


In my experience, Engadget has gotten the important news to me first, before any other website on this list.

While it does lack guides and humor, it does give out prizes to its readers every now and then.

Engadget is actually the largest site, and it banks in the most visitors out of every other tech site. Engadget's own Joshua Topolsky appeared on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon twice very recently.


Boy Genius Report is another tech site that people should depend on, but shouldn't make it their primary gadger site.

BGR posts news, but not nearly as fast as Gizmodo or Engadget, though BGR is often linked on the two sites because in the past it has leaked and unvieled big tech secrets, launch dates, and everything else that has been kept secret by tech companies.

You'll notice a "BGR" on some leaked images and such, because BGR actually puts those on the leaked images that they get to prevent other sites from stealing them without giving credit to BGR. This says a lot about BGR's credibility.


Wired is a tech site which is an expansion to Wired the magazine, which obviously indicates that it's the oldest out of the 5 other sites.

Like BGR, it doesn't update with much breaking news or normal news very quickly. It does, however, look the most appealing out of the 4 other sites.

What makes Wired stand out from the rest, is that it contains lots of video game news, while sites like Gizmodo and Engadget have "sister" sites that only do video games (Kotaku and JoyStiq).


CrackBerry is the best site out there for BlackBerry users.

CrackBerry seems to be very friendly with RIM, and they usually get their hands on BlackBerry devices before any other site, many months before the devices are released.

CrackBerry is very good at reviewing BlackBerry devices and accessories, and it should be your primary BlackBerry headquarters.
