They are the type of species who have tried to outrun this information world with their vast informative articles.

Plus in 2008 only, they also acquired 'PaidContent'.

4. ZDNet



ZDNet another tech blog, which for me should capture the fourth position of the best tech blogs. Founded in 1991 by CBS Interactive Media with the help of Tech Republic and Smart Planet.

Between 1991 - 1995 ZDNet was basically a subscription based dig. service company, which used to offer computing information to CompuServe.

But post 1995, the growth chart of ZDNet was worth watching.

They launched ZDNet News.

Not only this ZDNet is also present in Japan and UK.

And the final spot for the best Tech Blogs for 2015 goes to TechCrunch. It is an online publisher for startups and tech news. TechCrunch has its roots in UK, China and Japan. It had a french connection too.. but due to some issues it folded down.

So these were the 05 best Tech blogs to follow in 2017.

Apart from this, I would also like to mention one more blog as a newcomer, which might give these well settled sharks a run for their money.
