There are news websites out there that have their own "technology" section where you can get your quick news fix on what's happening in today's technology world. Aside from that, you also have websites such as The Verge, Engadget, and CNet that gives you behind-the-scenes look at upcoming devices and first looks at what's coming up. During events such as CES or Apple's Keynote are widely covered by many of these websites. There's also technology news podcasts that also count as getting your news too.

Where do you get your daily news fix on technology? If possible, what do you follow mostly? Computer news? Mobile? The latest in tech?

I usually get my tech news from the tech podcast, Tech News Today, which uses a multitude of sources such as The Verge, Engadget, TechCrunch, AllThingsD, CNET, ZDNet, etc.. since I'm not very selective on where I get tech news from, I usually watch the show to be in-the-know on the latest tech news, and I say they do a pretty good job at it.

And they link to their sources as well when reading them so you could get a full version of the stories they showcase on the podcast.

Love that URL. The quality is very hit-and-miss, though.
Doctors Without Borders: one of the few charity groups you can rely on to actually do real good in the world.

"The trouble with fighting for human freedom is that one spends most of one's time defending scoundrels. For it is against scoundrels that oppressive laws are first aimed, and oppression must be stopped at the beginning if it is to be stopped at all." - H. L. Mencken, unsourced

"There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there always has been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that 'my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.'"- Isaac Asimov, Column in Newsweek (21 January 1980) [source]

I use my local news website and they have a awesome tech reporter.

BBC is has a good tech section, and best of all is cNet. These three sites are the main ones I use.

Also forums that share news about the tech world.

My favorite evolution series

I use Gizmodo AU. It's not perfect, but I like the layout (of the Australian site - the US one is horrible) and the two sister sites, Kotaku and Lifehacker are pretty handy, so I like having them all linked (same account, links to relevant articles across the network).

While I don't use it often, the Verge gets major points for beautiful design and polish.

I like to use sites Kotaku, Lifehacker, and Gizmodo. I especially like all the tips and tricks for my electronics I get from Lifehacker.
