The best websites in the world…ever. Vol.2

My favourite websites are all content related, though set in different ways.  The three I have chosen are www.zgeek.comwww.trustedreviews.com and www.carmagazine.co.uk.

I have been reading and commenting on Zgeek for a number of years.  It is basically a forum where the homepage serves up news that the users have found around the web.  The content does swing towards the more nerdy side (who would have guessed from that name eh?) and some posts result in flame wars.  All in all it is the first website I log onto when I wake up after I check the day’s rankings.  It is a bit old-school social media, but it is not just posting comments or stories: you can vote for stories and people can give or take away ‘rep points’.  Woohoo.

Trusted Reviews
This is a news and reviews site for all things tech.  I love reading about gadgets almost as much as I like buying them.  There are a lot of review websites online, but not most of them are a bit second rate.  I trust (had to put that in) these guys reviews and almost always agree with what they have said.  I have made many a purchase based on what this site says and have not been disappointed.

They have recently added comments onto the end of their articles allowing for a bit of user interaction with the author, and it really is one of the best I have seen.  Great website, just wish they would say iPhone less…..

This is the website for the UK Car magazine (says so in the name…).   Being in Shanghai I find it difficult to get hold of all the car magazines I used to get (Car, Evo, Top gear, Auotexpress, etc) and this website gives me a dose of those articles.  I look at the other sites including www.evo.co.uk and www.topgear.com but find that Car is the one that is updated most regularly.  It also allows for interaction with the authors in the form of a comment section.  Not sure why I like reading about cars so much when it has been 5 years since I have owned one…..

Well there you have it.  A lot of people use MySpace and Facebook or the BBC, but the above sites are where I head as soon as I am on a computer.  I have been going to them for years, and if they keep up the good content I will continue to go to them.
