Expert-Recommended Resources
1. Apple News
Apple News is a good aggregator of various online new resources—it’s what I use when I’m in bed trying to wake up and digest what’s been going on around the world. It offers a good selection of topics, and there’s a lot of information on current events that can be casually and quickly consumed.
2. BetaKit And The Technology Headlines
I love BetaKit for Canadian tech startup news and The Technology Headlines for killer features and profiles on tech entrepreneurs. Additionally, I follow many of the top venture capital firms to stay current on their latest releases, trending companies and new investments. – Amanda Dorenberg, COMMB

3. Business2Community And CustomerThink
I like visiting the sites Business2Community and CustomerThink when I want to learn about new developments in the tech industry as well as get helpful marketing advice. They frequently upload new content, so these are excellent resources if you like getting rapid-fire updates. – Thomas Griffin, OptinMonster
4. Computer Weekly
The British publication Computer Weekly has evolved very successfully from its start as the world’s first weekly IT newspaper in 1966 to today’s digital offering, which covers the latest global tech news. I particularly follow the “IT Management” section for updates on governance, legislation and regulation.
Twitter is an incredible resource to follow tech developments because of the speed and customizability of the flow of information. It enables you to learn about whatever is most pertinent to your field constantly and instantaneously.
6. Google Alerts And Google News
Google Alerts is a customizable content change detection and notification service. It will send an email to a user when it finds newly published results—including Web pages, news articles, blogs or research—that match that user’s selected search term(s). It’s an easy way to keep track of news on a specific topic. Searching for a topic of interest on Google News is another quick way to learn about new developments.
