Tech is what we do. So, tech is what we read. Here’s a look at a few of our top favorites:

Pocket-lint
First, it’s tough not to love the name. Second, it has straightforward, easy-to-digest reviews.

Gizmodo
Satisfies our inner nerd and covers a wide range of technology.

TechCrunch
Typically has the best scoop and breaking news. Plus, nearly every client reads it and wants to see their name on its’ pages.

CNET
Great for hardware reviews. Never make a purchase without checking here first.

ReadWriteWeb
Always on top of tech trends and the impact they have on the industry.

CIO
It’s critical to know what’s important to influential IT leaders; there’s no better place to get that perspective.

AllThingsD
Great all-around tech company news source, but even better because it’s joyfully snarky (per this example).

Engadget
Can’t beat its Windows Phone app, making it easy to stay on top of the latest news and insights while on-the-go.

Popular Science
No better way to read about the future now. And to quote a ‘Foiler who will remain nameless, “Because it’s my life, and I’m a dork.”

New York Times Tech Section
All the tech news that’s fit to print on a national level.

AnandTech
Info and reviews on the latest computers, components and other electronic accessories.

Business Insider
Some of the best attention-getting subject lines in its daily email alerts and one of the author’s top go-to sites. 

USA Today Tech Section
Great barometer for when something truly “goes mainstream.”

Techmeme
Aggregates the top tech stories from most of these sites onto one page. You can’t beat the ease of accessibility when running from one meeting to the next.

Also frequently found on the browsers: The Verge, Mashable, VentureBeat, GigaOm, InformationWeek, Computerworld, Lifehacker, Wired and PCMag.

P.S. So as not to think we’re playing favorites, the sites are in no particular order – just the order they hit my inbox from my fellow ‘Foilers.

Happy tech surfing!
