In The News: Part Two – Top Tech Sources

By Technology One Comment

As a tech enthusiast, I’m continually keeping updated on the tech news that not only interest me but improves my quality of life. Most mornings and late nights, I can be found searching for new videos and scrolling through apps to find the latest content. Today I want to share with you the news apps that help me stay up to date with the latest news from the tech world.

My Top 5 Favorite News Apps on macOS and iOS

  1. YouTube – YouTube is my number 1 source for all things tech related! The ability to subscribe to channels, combined with cross-platform apps, makes this the easiest service for me to use. I’m usually watching these channels from my MacBook Pro, which is stationed at my desk most of the time, the Apple TV in my room or on my iPad. See Part One for the top 5 channels I subscribe to on YouTube.
  2. Google – Unless I know exactly which website I’m going to, I rarely open Safari on my iPhone, instead I use the Google app. As an avid Google search and GSuite user, the company has built quite a profile on what my interest are; not to mention the data that they collect via YouTube. Therefore, upon launching the Google app, I’m welcomed with a screen that includes news stories that I might be interested in reading.
  3. Apple News – For the last month and a half, I have been running the public beta of macOS Mojave, which introduces the ability to modify iOS apps for the Mac by porting their News and Stocks apps. Prior to using Mojave, I hadn’t given Apple News much thought, however, I have very much enjoyed this app on the Mac and I’ve started to use it on my iOS devices as well.
  4. Twitter – Twitter is great for following multiple companies and media outlets, such as CNET and 9to5 Mac. This allows you to have quick and easy access to news from the brands and media that you are most interested in.
  5. Facebook – Similar to Twitter, most brands and tech news channels have Facebook pages. I’ve ranked Twitter higher on this list due to my personal use preferences. I tend to use Twitter solely to follow brands and people in the public sphere, while I use Facebook and Instagram for personal connections as well as to grow my business.

In The News: Part One – Top Tech Channels

By Technology No Comments

As a tech enthusiast, I’m continually keeping updated on the tech news that not only interest me but improves my quality of life. Most mornings and late nights, I can be found searching for new videos and scrolling through apps to find the latest content. Today I want to share with you the YouTube channels that help me stay up to date with the latest news from the tech world.

My Top 5 Favorite YouTube Channels

  1. CNET– CNET is one of the most well-known technology media outlet, as it’s owned by CBS. This tops my list because of their “3:59 Podcast”, which they stream live on YouTube at 12 pm EST / 8 am PST Monday through Thursday.
  2. EverythingApplePro– As an Apple fan, I enjoy hearing the latest rumors and seeing concept renders. EverythingApplePro provides us with easy to understand reviews, rumors, and incredible renders.
  3. ZONEofTECH– ZONEofTECH is one of the largest tech influencers and channels in the UK. Daniel’s passion and knowledge of tech make this channel both entertaining and informative.
  4. Linus Tech Tips– Linus Tech Tips offers a wide variety of hardware, software and service tips, and reviews. Linus is my go to when I’m doing in-depth research on a non-Apple device or services, such as VPNs.
  5. Brian Tong– I have been following Brian Tong since his career as a reporter for CNET. Recently, he launched his own Youtube channel, keeping much of the same format from his former shows and podcasts. I appreciate his thoughts and insights into the world of Apple, and I find his Apple rating system very amusing.
