How Do You Stay Informed?

How do you "keep up" in the tech world? Other than here at Seven Forumns where do you look for information? Websites? Pod-casts? Magazines?

The Web is a glorious thing! Most of my up to date information comes from searching web, going to newegg.com and tigerdirect.com And of course SevenForums is a great way!!

I subscribe three English (one American, two British), a German and two Finnish IT-magazines. I am member in four different IT guilds or associations. On the net, I visit as often as possible on Seven Forums, Eight Forums, TechNet, Answers @ Microsoft, Linux Users, Mac Users. Subscribing about 20 different IT RSS feeds.

Lately I've noticed two members of Seven Forums have become my major sources; I enjoy checking Jan's (JMH) latest Windows news, and Corrine's security news. Not to mention news posted by Airbot, Shawn, John, Jacee and many others. Seven Forums really is a good place to keep yourself informed.

I usually use YouTube for review and other tech stuff, I am a subscriber to Popular Science and WIRED magazine.
For tech videos I rely on Linus Tech Tips:
YouTube - LinusTechTips's Channel
And NCIX Tech tips:
YouTube - NCIXcom's Channel
And of course Trubritar:
YouTube - trubritar's Channel

As a side note NCIX is the best computer company in Canada IMO. other than that I usualy stop by the closest Micro Center and Fry's Electronics.

Sure.

From USA I subscribe DevPro Connections (former asp.net PRO). From Germany the IMO best local PC magazine Chip, and from UK Windows: The Official Magazine and PC Pro. I do not subscribe but because of the memberships in different guilds or associations I additionally receive monthly copies of MSDN Magazine (USA) and Linux Magazin (German).

The Finnish one is Tietokone. First lesson in Finnish: tieto (FIN) = knowledge (ENG), kone (FIN) = machine (ENG), combine these two words and you get tietokone (FIN) = computer (ENG)
