Customer Reviews

Weekly tech highlights with a human-interest twist.

If you missed NPR on your morning or evening commute, then this is a great way to catch up. While they do not discuss every tech story that emerges during the week (get a news reader for that), they usually cover the big ones, and present a few human-interest, NPR-style stories that deal with technology. A good listen for those who are not tech-saavy, but want to stay up to date on the technology news makers.

Inconsistent to poor investigative reporting

I love listening to NPR. But when it comes to technology, an area I have deep knowledge, I've found NPR's reporting to often be surprisingly inaccurate and lazy. Too often they quote "analysts" who don't know squat, consultants who are biased by who pays them and even product vendors without much question. Too often they let these quotes stand without a counterpoint from experts without conflicts of interest. And finally too often I hear NPR just plain mistate *facts* about high tech. This lazy, shody reporting unfortunately has me wondering how accurate the non-tech reporting is on NPR.

Wonderful for a quick geek fix

Being an ex-engineer, I'm a bit of a science and technology nut, but job and family can crimp my other passions somewhat. Being able to snatch snippets of different topics when I have 5 or 6 minutes free is just fantastic. Not to mention being able to enjoy the typically outstanding production values of an NPR broadcast. Keep 'em coming!
