Techland – Techland offers “the latest in nerd news, gadgets, culture and games.” Is there something new here? Not really; it is a tech/gadgets related website just like Engadget and Gizmodo. So why are we featuring it on our Weekly Faves? Because despite Techland’s familiar feeling, its content presentation is well executed. Posts are a blend of technological concepts and terms with wittiness and an amusing approach. Also, Techland’s color of choice is a huge hit in my book. Another reason Techland got a Weekly Faves spot is that it’s a new site on the scene. But rest assured, the Techland team has been swimming in the tech pool for quite some time, and it simply relocated from Nerd World to Techland.
As you know, we feature ten new Weekly Faves every week, and at the end of the year our team chooses the most amazing sites of that year (see which sites rocked in 2007 and 2008). This year the AMF team will publish its list of top 40 websites the company was most impressed by, and you, the users, will be invited to place your votes and select the absolute top 10 that made 2009 stand out – so stay tuned. In the meantime, you can enjoy Techland’s vote of the Top 10 Gadgets of 2009.
