Lots of digital natives have turned to social feeds like Twitter to keep up with the daily flow of tech news, but if you rely solely on social media then you can miss some of the most important stories when you're not looking. To help you filter out the noise and catch the top tech stories, I produce a daily newsletter that goes out to over 100,000 of my closest friends in tech.
In writing the Tech Sanity Check blog, I look for the big developments and the most important trends. I don't usually spend my time reporting the news. Instead, I constantly scan the headlines and read a ton of articles looking for the next big thing. Since I've constantly got my head in the news every day and I'm always trying to sort out the stuff worth reading, I enjoy pulling together my list of the critical stories to watch.
Give the Tech Sanity Check newsletter a try. I'm committed to making it a worthwhile read every day. You can click the link above to sign up immediately (if you're already logged in to TechRepublic) or follow the steps below to subscribe:
