    How can I make The Gadgeteer better for YOU?
    I’d enjoy more side-by-side comparisons of gadgets. Many times its difficult to understand whether some new gadget is competitive.

    Which do you enjoy reading most? News or reviews? Reviews

    Which do you enjoy reading most? News or reviews?
    This is a tie – but maybe leaning a tad more towards reviews.

    Kids tech type stuff (I have lots of tech savvy Grandkids).

  8. 1.I would enjoy more reviews (with detailed comparisons when appropriate).

  9. How can I make The Gadgeteer better for YOU?
    I really like the everyday carry stuff and the travel based reviews. So I guess go on vacation more?

    Reviews – especially ones that provide the links to comparable products and reviews – yes, I am lazy
    What should we write about next?
    Home automation and IoT stuff, more prosumer wifi, drones and camera, smart speaker ecosystem, EDC stuff (more of it from more people?), organization methods, note taking

  10. How can I make The Gadgeteer better for YOU?
    Feature a “throwback” type of review. Maybe post an old review, and put a new twist on it. If you were reviewing a Palm IIIC today, what would you look for?

    Which do you enjoy reading most? News or reviews?
    News items.

    What should we write about next?
    The demise of tablets.

  11. How can I make The Gadgeteer better for YOU?
    I like reading about new tech, but I also still use old stuff, so maybe some stories about using the new with the old.
    Which do you enjoy reading most? News or reviews?
    Both as the particular topic interests me.
    What should we write about next?
    Phone that are 1 or 2 generations old, and still good devices, things to do to refresh those old devices.

  12. How can I make The Gadgeteer better for YOU?
    I really appreciated the note of “review” or “news” in the article banner. I’d suggest every news article should have a bit about why it’s important, innovative, or worth my time- not just it exists.

    Which do you enjoy reading most? News or reviews?
    I prefer the reviews, because if I’m interested enough to read, I’m likely interested enough to buy. I trust your reviews more than the ones submitted by bots on sites.

    What should we write about next?
    There are some great competitively priced products out there, and I’d like to hear about ones you have found that fill in for the uber-luxurious ones we sometimes hear about. I love great headphones, but $900?! I love awesome organized bags, but I’m not likely to spend $400. What have you found that is great, and filled these voids for less? Thanks!

  13. 1. How can I make The Gadgeteer better for YOU?
    -Feature gadgets that work well for women who want to carry them in a small purse, wristlet, or in a pocket of a comfy dress.

    2. Which do you enjoy reading most? News or reviews?
    -Both as they are always informative!

    3. What should we write about next?
    -Gadgets you’ve purchased that were a waste of money because you never maximized the use of them. I mean, who wants to waste money?
    Or, write about gadgets you found you purchased more than one of because they were so great!

  14. 1. How can I make The Gadgeteer better for YOU?
    -> By making a 360° view of the gadgets and also keeping a ask questions box to solve our doubts on a gadget.
    2. Which do you enjoy reading most? News or reviews?
    -> Mostly reviews because it gives a good idea about the product
    3. What should we write about next?
    -> about phone reviews

  15. 1. How can I make The Gadgeteer better for YOU?
    More hands on reviews!

    2. Which do you enjoy reading most? News or reviews?
    Reviews. I love the way the reviewers incorporate the devices into their everyday lives, just like I would use them.

    3. What should we write about next?
    More tech toys (drones, action cameras, etc.)!

  16. 1. How can I make The Gadgeteer better for YOU? – More products!!
    2. Which do you enjoy reading most? News or reviews? Reviews
    3. What should we write about next? Devices for cutting the cable

  17. How can I make The Gadgeteer better for YOU?
    Would love more video review and long term usage reviews.

    Which do you enjoy reading most? News or reviews?
    Love reviews over news items.

    What should we write about next?
    Would like more EDC gear from Gadgeteer reviewers so we can see what they use daily for themselves.

  18. How can I make The Gadgeteer better for YOU?
    I love it the way it is now. I learn of new gadgets not discussed in any of the other sources I read.

    Which do you enjoy reading most? News or reviews?
    Both! The news is not just a rehash of a vendors press release and the reviews come with the assurance that someone has actually tried to use the product.

    What should we write about next?
    Keep covering tools that assist me in my constantly mobile office environment. Thanks.

  19. How can I make The Gadgeteer better for YOU? I love learning about new tech. I would appreciate follow up reviews to see about longevity of products.
    Which do you enjoy reading most? News or reviews? Reviews are better
    What should we write about next? The next best IT thing

  20. 1. How about adding special sale discount for readers for the products you reviewed. Also more giveaways!
    2. Both but prefer reviews.
    3. I don’t know really.

  21. 1. How can I make The Gadgeteer better for YOU?
    More drawings !
    2. Which do you enjoy reading most? News or reviews?
    Reviews
    3. What should we write about next?
    I, too, am interested in an all-in-one device, so anything that
    might meet that criteria.

    I am already subscribed

  22. How can I make The Gadgeteer better for YOU?
    I would really like a standardised format for reviews. Some reviews really suck while some like yours really draw me in when I read them. Please set a house style like media houses do.

    Which do you enjoy reading most? News or reviews?
    I really cant tell the difference. I thought we only got reviews here.

    What should we write about next?
    I think you have covered most of my interests and still do. I would love to see more of the readers, writing devices and media viewing devices. Like, I would love to know, what is happening in video streaming devices currently? Since everybody is leaving Netflix, is there one device I can buy so that I can have several services like disney, amazon and netflix on the same device? I force my fire hd 8 to do netflix. Is there a better device for this? Can the chrome wachamacallit do this? can it buffer several gigs of episodes so I can watch them later?
