Interested in learning more about Digital Humanities? Or technology in general? How do you keep up with the latest? Here are some pointers (primarily for those working in Classical Islamic Studies).
Which tool should I use?
- https://arstechnica.com/ I find its ‘tech’ section best, and mostly leave out the other categories. Its writing certainly has a more technical knack to it, but their opinion is usually highly informed.
- https://www.cnet.com Has reviews on nearly any device, including comparisons. Often fairly informative.
