Keeping up with technology is a job in itself. Technology changes so rapidly, youâ€™d be out of the loop in a manner of minutes if you didnâ€™t keep up on the latest news. I wanted to share with you some of the magazine publications I read on a regular basis.
eWeek â€“ One of the best resources for up-to-date technology news. Recently I read in eWeek that Toshiba was recalling memory chips on some laptops. Turned out it was one I owned. I responded immediately to Toshiba and received my new chip all thanks to eWeek.
VARBusiness â€“ VARBusiness is all about working in vertical markets – a very lucrative strategy. Their articles are very engaging. I just read a fantastic article on Appleâ€™s deceptive tactics towards their own resellers. I mostly enjoy the “Systems Building” section in the back sponsored by TechBuilder.org.
Information Week â€“ My favorite is the “News Scan” section. They provide brief tech news stories – just enough info to understand what’s going on without all the extra stuff.
Maximum PC â€“ This magazine is great for the ultimate PC enthusiast. Every article, review, etc. is cutting edge. MaxPC never gives you the same â€˜ol articles on tweaking Windows like some other PC Mags do. One of my favorite articles was how to create an HTML active desktop.
These magazines are just a few I subscribe to and try to read on a regular basis. You know the old saying, “Knowing is half the battle”.
