A Brief Blog Profile: Digital Trends
by Thomas Hynes
There's a reason Digital Trends is such a successful technology blog. (And by successful, I mean they boast more than 40 million monthly readers.) Sure, they publish often and on a variety of issues. Sure, they regularly feature "trend leaders" on their blog. But, one thing that stands out in their mission is the promise to "speak your language." After all, the best experts in the world aren't worth much if nobody can understand them.
And again, this site really does cover a lot of ground. You can read about the best android games or even the best laptops. And if you're not into the whole comparative thing, maybe this felt tablet cover is more your thing. Or maybe, you'd like to read about how Men in Black 3 got its awesome special effects. What's cool about Digital Trends is that they cover all this kind of stuff, but also dive deeper into technology's issues. For instance, there's this report on how web traffic is due to quadruple (QUADRUPLE!) by 2016. And there's this piece on the RIAA chastising Google for not doing enough to protect against piracy.
The truth of the matter is there are a lot of angles to technology. Their goal is to not only inform, but to " make it easier for people to make smart choices about the products and services that touch their everyday lives." And after taking a look around the site, you can see there isn't a whole lot they're leaving out of the conversation.
