It’s hard to remember a world without blogs. Originally a sort of online journal full of mundane personal updates, web logs have morphed into an extremely powerful form of communication.


They were once shunned by the mainstream — now they are the mainstream.


Whether it’s breaking tech news, an insider’s point of view, or irreverent humor you’re seeking, there are an infinite number of blogs on any subject whose authors will be happy to oblige.


It shouldn’t be any surprise that the tech world embraced the blogosphere far before every newspaper in the country started making their writers blog alongside their standard news stories. As a result, there are blogs that are so great, so informative, so current — you’d be lost in your tech career without them. Here’s some we monitor daily. Add them to your bookmarks!



If you haven’t heard of “The Social Media Guide,” you just might be living under an old Commodore 64. Updated constantly, and nearly always entertaining, Mashable takes the worlds of Twitter, Facebook, entertainment, news, and everything else techies are talking about and, well, mashes it up into the kind of blog casserole we just can’t get enough of.

如果你没有听说过“社交媒体指南”,你肯定是生活在老式Commodore 64(Commodore 64是Commodore International在1982年8月发行的8位元家用电脑,以595美元发售)的年代。更新及时,并且几乎总是很有趣,Mashable汇集了Twitter,Facebook,娱乐,新闻和任何其他科技人员在谈论的事情,并将它们混搭起来,我们总是看不够。


Pretty much known as the TMZ of tech after they paid for a “lost” next-gen Apple iPhone — the fallout became front-page news across the world. Scandals aside, Gizmodo’s been a must-follow site for a long time, with tons of relevant posts, a youthful vibe, and some of the funnier commenters on the Internet.



If you’re looking for what’s next, look no further. Om Malik’s creation has grown into one of the largest blogs worldwide, and it’s all due to focusing on what’s new. News and analysis on Web 2.0, technologies and startups, social media, gaming — you name it, GigaOM has it covered. That’s what happens when you have a team of 12 technology-obsessed writers (six of which have authored over 100 posts each).

如果你在寻找接下来会发生什么,不用看别的。Om Malik的创作已经增长为世界范围内最大的博客之一,并且因为它只关心新鲜事。Web 2.0时代的新闻和分析,科技和创业公司,社交媒体,游戏——你叫得上名字的,GigaOM都有。这些都是由12名痴迷技术的写手组成的团队的产物(其中6名每人贡献超过100篇文章)。


In online terms, 10 years is a lifetime and 20 is an eternity. How long ZDNet has been in existence makes this go-to tech website (formerly “ZiffNet”) an anomaly among blogs. Founded in 1991, formerly on CompuServe and Prodigy, ZDNet was purchased in 2000 by CNET (CBS Interactive), and reports on a variety of tech news. While they focus heavily on the usual suspects (Apple, Microsoft, Google), ZDNet also features product reviews, software downloads and tons of news and analysis on tech businesses and issues.



Younger than ZDNet but no less influential in the world of Web 2.0 and tech startup news, TechCrunch is big. How big? Try No. 2 on Technorati. And TechCrunch isn’t just the second-biggest tech blog, it’s the No. 2 blog overall behind The Huffington Post (Mashable is currently No. 3). And why is TechCrunch so big? They have a huge team, their own “network” of sites (including MobileCrunch, TalkCrunch and CrunchGear). Mix in a clean-looking site and just the right amount of techy gossip and you have what should be an industry leader for the foreseeable future.

作为比ZDNet年轻但是影响丝毫不亚于ZDNet的Web 2.0世界的科技创业新闻,TechCrunch是巨大的。有多大?在Technorati(一个著名的博客搜索引擎)搜索一下第二名。并且TechCrunch不只是第二大的科技博客,它是排位于Huffington Post之后第2大的综合博客(Mashable现在是第3名)。那么为什么TechCrunch如此庞大?它们有一个庞大的团队,它们自己的网站“网络”(包括MobileCrunch,TalkCrunch和CrunchGear)。混达成一个界面清爽的网站以及数量刚刚好的科技八卦使其在可预见的未来成为行业的领导者。

Computerworld Blogs

More and more of the best “blogs” are actually websites that compile several different bloggers, and Computerworld’s blog is no exception. Remember those mainstream media sources that realized they needed to add blogs to remain viable? Computerworld — one of the oldest and most respected IT magazines — is a great example. CW has plenty of great blogs to choose from, but our favorite is the aptly named “Apple Holic” by Jonny Evans.

越来越多的最佳“博客们”实际上是整合了几个不同博客站点的网站,Computerwold的博客也不例外。还记得那些意识到他们需要添加博客来保持活力的主流媒体资源吧?Computerworld——最老的和最受尊敬的IT杂志之一——就是一个很好的例子。CW从很多优秀的博客站点选择文章,但我们最喜爱的恰好还是Jonny Evans的"Apple Holic(苹果迷)"。

Official Google Enterprise Blog

Sure, this blog’s name isn’t exactly the catchiest in the blogosphere, but who cares? Nobody who works in IT (actually, nobody who lives and works in 2010) can go very long without interacting with something related to Google. This is the place to find out everything about the search giant, the apps they’ve created, and information about the company.


The Unofficial Apple Weblog

What’s a list of blogs without one of the many different sites devoted to Apple gossip? After all, Apple might have surpassed Microsoft as the world’s most valuable tech company while you’re reading this article. So after checking out the Official Google Enterprise Blog, be sure to check out The Unofficial Apple Weblog to make sure you stay up-to-date on both of the most glamorous tech companies out there. Of all the blogs devoted to following Steve Jobs and his company’s creations, TUAW perhaps does the best job at balancing good writing with nice graphics and pictures.


How-To Geek

Even the best IT “geeks” can’t possibly know how to do everything. That’s why we love this site, where you can find out how to remove hyperlinks from Microsoft Word Docs, review products, and play a ton of free games, all on the same site. Geeks unite!



Even if ITBusinessEdge.com weren’t an Inside Tech partner, we’d still give them a shout-out. An all-encompassing site that happens to have some of the better tech blogs out there, ITBE is essential for those in the tech industry. After all, one of the toughest (and most exciting) parts about working in tech is that it’s ever changing.

If you want to stay on top of tech issues and trends affecting your company and the tech industry as a whole, you better pay close attention to ITBusinessEdge.com.

虽然ITBusinessEdge.com不是Inside Tech的合作伙伴,我们仍然要把他们晒出来。一个包罗万象的网站碰巧有一些更好的技术博客,ITBE对于技术业界人士来说是必须的。毕竟,技术工作最艰难(也是最令人兴奋)的部分就是它是在不断变化的。小睡几日你就可能错过关于你正在做的东西已经过时的新闻并且你曾经认为是王者的公司可能已经被别的什么人收购了。如果你想要总览影响你公司的技术事件和趋势以及高科技产业,你最好密切关注ITBusinessEdge.com。
