Happy Birthday, Nifty Tech Blog!

by Doc Coleman - Nifty Tech Editor February 2, 2011 Announcements

A year ago today, the Nifty Tech Blog launched with our first review of Delicious Library. So much has changed in a year. Since that time we’ve published 29 other reviews,  43 Follow Friday recommendations, and 5 editorials. In February 2010, the blog was a one man show, hosted in a corner of my .Mac account space using iWeb. Now Scott Roche has joined the staff, and we’ve had contributions by Odin1Eye and Philippa Ballantine, and a crossover event with Tee Morris’ Bird House Rules. We moved our hosting to Blogger, and thanks to the generous contributions from our readers, we’re getting ready to move to our own servers and to stand up a WordPress version of the Blog.


Help Support The Nifty Tech Blog

Have you been enjoying The Nifty Tech Blog? We certainly hope so. And we hope that you’d be willing to give something back. We want to bring you more features, more reviews, and better on site services. But we just don’t have the resources to do these things on our own. We’ll continue to do what we can, but there are a few things that you could do to help us bring you the reviews and features you’ve enjoyed up to now, and make things better for the future.


July Poll Wrapup

by Doc Coleman - Nifty Tech Editor August 2, 2010 Feedback

July’s poll has come to an end, but before we look at the results, I’m afraid I’ve got a little administrative news to impart. I’ve been working to provide a special review for tomorrow, and coordinating everything is going to take a bit more time than expected. So instead of tomorrow’s review showing up at 12:01 AM, it is going to be delayed until 7 AM. It shouldn’t be any later than that. And hopefully, you’ll enjoy what we’ve got in store for you.


July’s Poll: How tech savvy are you?

by Doc Coleman - Nifty Tech Editor July 11, 2010 Feedback

The first of the June polls is over, although there are a few more days for the second one.  I’m glad to see that more people are participating, although it is still a really small sample. But the results are kind of interesting.  I asked what missing feature would inspire you to buy a new iPhone 4, and a full half of the responders said that there was no feature missing. For half of them that was because they would never buy an iPhone of any kind.  For the other half the iPhone 4 already has all the features they’re interested in. The half of all responders who wanted a new feature to entice them to get an iPhone 4 all wanted a choice of carrier other than AT&T. One wanted Verizon, one was happy with anyone BUT AT&T, and the remainder wanted their new iPhones to be completely unlocked so they could go to any carrier they wanted.
