I’m always on the look out for new technology. And not just for use on my motorcycle.
To keep abreast of new technology coming, my main source of information is the internet. Plus I occasionally pick up a magazine or stumble across and interesting newspaper article. I also subscribe to a Which?. In addition to providing excellent general UK consumer advice, Which? has an excellent technology section featuring new technology and comprehensive product reviews including tests to help consumers work out the new technology that is best for their needs (according to Which? “News and views without the hype”).
From time to time I also check out Engadget but mostly access this through their smartphone apps. These apps are available on all popular smartphone platforms (iPhone, Android, Windows, Blackberry etc).
There are probably plenty of other websites and resources out there and everyone has their own favourites but these are the ones that I use and I find sufficient for staying current of what is going on the world of new technology.
Yesterday an email from Which? appeared in my inbox that caught my attention regarding the IFA 2012 show which started on the 31st of August and runs through to the 5th of September.
To learn more about the IFA 2012, the largest consumer electronics trade show in Europe held annually in Berlin and showcasing the next wave of new technology that will hit our shops before Christmas, have a quick look at the Which? Tech Daily blog or IFA announcement from Engadget.
If you don’t think of yourself as a tech nerd then at least have a look at this video to see some items you might like to add to your Christmas wish list. I wish I’d known about the IFA 2012 sooner as I’d have made every effort to get along for a proper look myself (I’ve never been to Berlin). Well, there is always next year I guess!
