Sometimes missing out on the latest tech news and features over the weekend can’t be helped: you had dull life chores to take care of, you promised to take the kids to that amusement park, you really needed to get the garden under control, your hangover prevented you from functioning properly.
There are many reasons why you might not have been able to keep up with the latest-and-greatest happenings from tech land in the last 48 hours. It’s ok, we’re not here to judge your excuses. We’re here to pay attention so you don’t have to.
New York, meet the world’s tech scene
5,000 Tech leaders are coming to NYC this November to learn and do business. This is your chance to join them.
So, put aside those promises to try harder next weekend, make a coffee and spend 10 minutes catching up on what you’ve already missed. And while we’re happy to keep you informed on tech news, we make no promises on helping with your garden.
