I like Tech News. I reckon you know that from watching “Dr. Bill – The Computer Curmudgeon!” The more tech news outlets, the better, as far as I am concerned! So, this site is quite interesting to me… and I like what I see!
“We couldn’t be more pleased to share what we’ve been cranking away on for the last several months.
Although much of the editorial team here has been publishing content and covering events on This Is My Next, our true work has been preparing The Verge for this moment.
We’re focused on bringing you — our extremely savvy and frankly very handsome readers — the best and most comprehensive coverage of the consumer technology world. Not just the nuts and bolts, 24-hour news cycle stuff, but more in-depth coverage, bigger stories, and content that goes further.
We’re going to do that on a new product that we’re really psyched about. A site that’s not just a stagnant, fixed entity, but an evolving, growing piece of technology. We think of The Verge (and its underlying CMS) as something akin to an app. A piece of software that is being constantly developed and updated. Today we’re launching with The Verge 1.0, but 1.1 and 1.2 are just around the corner.
We’re launching with awesome tools like StoryStreams, which help us tell a narrative in a way which no one else can. It’s a technology developed in-house that allows us to stitch together disparate parts of a story in a logical timeline, and it’s incredible for reporting news.
We’re launching with design-focused, beautiful reviews and features (you can see some examples here and here). We’re launching with a robust product database with thousands of entries (and counting) and fantastic comparison tools (here, for example). We’re launching with a fast, smart community commenting and forum system, one that ties directly into the rest of our site and lets reader voices be heard in a meaningful way.”
