In today’s world, technology is everywhere, but it’s hard to keep up with all the gadgets, gizmos and even just the new jargon that comes along with all that electronic razzle-dazzle that’s supposed to make our life easier.
That’s why I like two specific writers that have regular columns to keep you up-to-date on some of the best tech stuff that’s out there — and they’re written for you and me in plain-English. No high-brow acronym-filled pages. Just good recommendations and honest reviews of things that you could probably use in your e-life.
The two guys I like are Walt Mossberg of the Wall Street Journal and Steve Wildstrom of Businessweek. They cover most of the “hottest” gadgets that are in the news, but they do testing and provide some real honest advice about all of it with both pros and cons.
Most of Mossberg’s Personal Technology columns are available on WSJ.com free for you to read, although some are kept behind gates at the subscription-based site.
As for Wildstom’s Technology & You column it’s available online, but the print version has been around since 1994. He’s got a podcast that he puts out every Thursday if you want fresh insights every week.
BONUS TIP: You can get a subscription to BusinessWeek magazine’s digital version completely free right now.
