That’s right, four years ago, on February 1st 2010, the first Nifty Tech blog post went live. While technology has come a long way since that first post, it is remarkable how so many of those early posts are still relevant today. For years is long time in the technology industry, but I don’t think we’ve had a single Nifty Tech pick that has gone by the wayside. If anything, most of the products have managed to improve since the original reviews. And while things have been slow in the past year, we’re not done yet…
The pace has slowed down here at Nifty Tech Central, but not for lack of cool tech! Honestly, it is the people who have failed, not the technology. Our staff has branched out in their personal projects and discovered a measure of success in writing fiction. We’ve also each had personal events that have kept us from looking at the world of technology around us. But there are still new articles in the wings, waiting for those final touches.
One of the hardest things to do when getting a new review ready is make sure that we’ve done our level best to fully research each product. Sometimes, the process of verifying those last details and presenting that information for you, the reader, is very difficult to coordinate. In these cases it isn’t enough to tell you about a product, we need to show you why we are so taken with it. That involves an extra effort that doesn’t always come easy.
While we have slowed down a bit, the Nifty Tech Blog is not dead. You can still look forward to new articles appearing in this coming year: new reviews, editorials, and guest reviews. See you soon!
