Just because summer is changing into fall, doesn’t mean our readership becomes homebodies after work.
However, we do admit that with shorter daylight hours we editors do spend at least 45 minutes more reading tech news. We compress the top tech articles into snackables gleaned from CNET, Reddit, Mashable, Techcrunch, and Engadget to name a few.
Why? Because we hope to inspire you to join the maker community such as a Maker Faire near you this Fall!
Allow our blog to distill tech news into 4 tasty bites. For more information, check out the Twitter handle or click on the link under each image.
