But his site is not just about Apple, it’s about the latest technology news in electronics and communication in general.

The Guardian Tech Pages
If you’re after a more mainstream alternative for the latest news in electronics and communication then consider The Guardian’s tech pages.
The Guardian is one of the few mainstream newspapers which is not behind a paywall and still allows users to browse and read for free without a subscription.
The Guardian’s tech pages offer a range of content. From classic reviews of all the latest products, there’s also opinion columns and expert advice from their own team of respected reporters.
Politics and Tech
What’s different about The Guardian’s tech pages is that they offer a perspective on the political nature of the tech world as well as just the positive side.
The Guardian’s biggest tech story of recent times was the revelations of former National Security Agency (NSA) worker Edward Snowden.
His evidence that the government had been using mass survivance techniques sparked an international debate about the power of governments and the complicity of big tech to maintain these programs.
Other stories they run include long reads about the future of society and how bitcoin and the blockchain look set to change the world, for better or for worse.
Not everyone knows how to use technology to its full potential as soon as it comes out. For some people figuring stuff out on their own is a key part of the excitement of owning a new technology.
Others need a little help along the way and want to know that they are using their machines to the best of their abilities. This is where how-to geek steps in. Their stories include ‘What is Google Pay and what can you do with it?’ and an explanation of how to hide the menu bar on the recently released Mac OS BigSur.
They have sections on Windows machines as well as Apple devices and also on smart home devices.
The smart home is the future of all our homes, especially since we are all now working from home.
What’s great about How-to Geek is that it recognizes this and allows us to compare smart home tech side-by-side. It tells us what a smart speaker is the best solution for what you want to do. The site has 3 clear sidebars within the smart home section of comparisons, explainers, and smart speaker reviews.
