Every Thursday the digital NY TIMES provides tech-savvy readers with a treat: David Pogue’s wry, whimsical, but highly informative blog which offers sprightly perspectives on “personal technology.” From iPods to printers to cameras to “personal projectors,” his column, State of the Art, takes us behind the scenes of new developments, product utility, and items to avoid until they go into 2.0.
There are also enteraining short videos (sometimes shown on CBS’s Sunday Morning broadcast) that illustrate the highs and lows of using technology for both entertainment and educational benefit. Part comedian, part musician, part technologist, Pogue’s wit and verve offer a nice antidote to deadly serious densely written analyses. The best part is he knows what’s he’s talking about AND he never talks down to those less initiated. Thanks, David!
