GottaBeMobile Makes InformationWeek’s Top 60 Little-Known Technology Web Sites

There’s nothing like a little "atta-boy" to get your day off to a good start.

InformationWeek has compiled their Top 60 Little-Known Technology Websites, and wouldn’t you know it, made the list!


The list is grouped by technology focus, but is not ranked.

This Web site delivers news, reviews, and commentary on everything related to mobile computing, such as tablet PCs, ultra-mobile PCs, operating systems, software, accessories, and connectivity. The "staff" is made up of editors that run the site, and several contributing writers who deliver the material in a very conversational way, often in first-person. While GottaBeMobile provides a lot of opinion, it’s a good place to find reviews, specs, and pricing on the hottest mobile gadgets.

One very cool aspect of GottaBeMobile is the InkShows, a whole series of podcasts and blog entries on various topics that incorporate screen recording software for demos of products. It’s not clear how big the Web site’s following is, but it must be substantial enough for them to be selling T-shirts, mugs, messenger bags, and other GottaBeMobile gear.


One caveat: The Web site contains a lot of useful content but the user experience could use improvement, especially when it comes to loading time — homepage often takes way too long to load)


IW mentions the load time of our homepage as a negative, and it is something I’m well aware of and working on. I believe we have outgrown our blogging engine, dasBlog. I’ve been in the process of looking at some more powerful blogging engines that can handle the amount of traffic and content we pump through. Stay tuned.

Thanks for sending the link to us, Sumocat. You made our day!

And, of course, a huge thanks goes out to Warner, Sierra, and Matt. They are an awesome team to work with.
