Quick Tips — On Reviews

This blog contains articles about solutions that I’ve found and liked.  You may wonder how I make a decision.  Well, if post-it notes on a dart board fail, I start looking at review sites and user comments.  Reviewer sites fall into two categories, review sites with one focus and sites covering a whole scope of technology.  My current new favorite is toptenreviews.  Interestingly enough, I don’t like it because I agree with it all the time.  I like it because it provides a list of ten things in a category.  Probably why they named it top 10 reviews.  Sometimes your biggest obstacle in making a decision is finding several good choices to choose between.  I also like the site because you can usually suss out their reason for ordering by reading 2 or 3 reviews.  This has often meant that the 10th item on their list is the one I want, but it still gives me that item.
