One of the best sources of computer technology... at least back in 2008 or earlier, it was... is Digg. Sure, it has lost ground to competitors like Reddit and even new challengers like Pinterest in terms of popularity, but that only means it has gone back to its roots after its overexpansion of categories (and its power user wars) led it to nearly become irrelevant. With that said, CNET is the true computer news source; it's the site that other sites like Reddit, Pinterest, and Digg regularly quote. It's in fact the leader of technological news on the Internet for many, many years. It even delivers tons of tech reviews and downloadable software samples from the CNET-run Download.com, all the while maintaining an effective SEO related marketing technique.
The Best New Sources for Computer and Technology
While CNET is, according any hardcore computer geek worth his salt, the best of its kind when it comes to technological news (many tech-savvy programmers have the site bookmarked as their primary tech news source, in fact), ZDNet comes a close second. It offers many opinion pieces from renowned tech-savvy staffers plus its reader base regularly interacts with the site by posting their two-cents on comment-enabled articles. If you want your tech opinion heard, then ZDNet is the tech news site you're looking for.
Even mainstream news outlets like CNN, BBC, and MSNBC are getting into the tech news act by delivering pages with technology sections that are updated regularly (and many other tech sites quote them and their reports to add a touch of authenticity to their sources). Many readers have fun comparing articles of the same topic across these many different news sites to see what sort of "bias" these domains run (or which one is the most objective).
Google News and Yahoo News are currently delivering quality scoops straight to their sites with no in-between. This means that when it comes to getting the latest news on the dot... even by the second... you can bet that Yahoo or Google News would be on top of the situation and the important news event before even CNN catches wind of it.
