I thought I'd share a couple more ways to get your daily fill of geek news:
Digg is a tech 'news' site much like Slashdot but with a twist. Users submit stories like normal, but instead of an editor choosing what makes it to the front pages the users do. You can scan through the pile of recent submissions and click on "digg this story" to vote on what you like. The stories with the highest votes make it to the front page, or to the front page of a particular category. Pretty cool.
If you don't know about this one yet, you should check it out. It is basically a Ďone stop shopí web based RSS aggregator for about 300 of the top tech sites. As Iíve already mentioned before I prefer to use a web based RSS solution over an installed client package. This allows me to get the latest headlines at a glance from anywhere I can access the Web (PC or mobile). A few clicks later and Iíve got tabs opened for all the stories Iím interested in. For general RSS feeds Iíve just been using my.Yahoo.com tuned to my favorite sites etc. Daily Rotation is much like that only dialed to 11 on the geek scale. You can configure your preferences like format, font, desired sites etc. and it will drop them in a cookie for you. Heck itís worth checking just to see the impressive list of tech sites you never new existed.
