Short on time, but need your daily tech news fix?!

CNET has something for you! Tech Today - Your daily tech news app.

Hello everyone,

I know most of you are on the go and busy for most of your day, and sometimes catching up on important tech news is a challenge. If this sounds like you, I have some great news.

CNET just released a new app called Tech Today for iOS that delivers the 10 biggest stories of the day from CNET. I've been using it myself for a few days and I'm impressed with the simplicity of the app, as it gives me just the right amount of tech news, stories, and opinions, during my commute to work. So if you don't have much time, but still want a simple way to catch up on important tech happenings each day, this is the app for you.

Please give it a try and download it here for your iOS device.

Once you have given it some use, your feedback is super important to us. So if have anything to say, good or bad we want to know so that we can improve on it for you. Your feedback is appreciated.

While I know many android users are asking why is this app only for iOS users, well for starters this new CNET app is just the beginning--like a trial ground to see how folks use it and for us to learn more of what people like/dislike about it.

Once we have learned from the feedback given to us by iOS users, we can then improve, modify, or reiterate on the app to make it even better. Once we have a solid app, we will then go down the path of building this app our for more platforms like Android.

We just want to make sure that we build a refined app so that it is useful and a solid product that most users would enjoy using, so this is just the beginning.

So please give it try and share your experience with the CNET team. We're all ears. Grin

Thank you for your time, we do hope you enjoy using it!

Hi quirky3450,

You can manage all your CNET newsletter subscription from your CNET profile here:

In the future if you ever need to access your CNET profile on any CNET page if you go the top right of the CNET navigation bar, once you log into CNET you can click on "My profile" or your username to access your CNET profile page. From there you can manage all your site settings, newsletters, and CNET profile and account information.

I hope this helps.
Cheers and Happy holidays!

Not your old Cnet
by cgberardi / December 29, 2016 8:18 AM PST

Is it just me? Cnet has become just one huge advertising site with little bits of nearly original text between the ads!
As a place to come to obtain tech information, the practicality of it is approaching zero.
Did Cnet change management - what happened to make such a dreadful change?

Not entirely my opinion

But I do agree that CNet should have fewer ads and control the qualities of the ads as well.
