At DesignM.ag we hope to quench our readers thirst for design inspiration and resources. We try to mix it up with different types of posts to fuel your inspirational forces.  But let’s face it.  Sometimes in life we need a little edge, a little spice.  Sometimes we need a change of pace.  Sometimes we need a site that really is “fresh & never boring”.  Consider Techi, an exciting platform that serves fresh daily technology news, funky new design stuff, in-depth editorial articles and reviews.  After spending a few days checking out the content, I’m sold!  They bring a unique perspective and don’t seem to looking for filler content on the most recent trends like some other technology blogs (you know who you are).

Recently they featured a post which I thoroughly enjoyed entitled You’ve Got Fail: Celebrating AOL’s 25th Anniversary With 18 Examples of Fail Specifically I enjoyed the segments which talked about the 2009 Aol rebrand (images below),

and the failed attempt at trying to see if they could completely cover the earth’s surface with their compact disk mailers.

But what I liked most about this post is how I had never considered how terrible this company is. I was fully aware of the fact that they tried to keep customers by refusing to cancel their service but had never put all the failures together in one concise post. Luckily for my entertainment, Techi did.

Just like with any decent tech blog you can expect 5-10 solid posts a day that focus on current hot topics. After thinking about it, all you need to do is browse the headlines to see that the site is providing fresh tech news. Read the headlines for the top 8 posts below.

The site is apparently gaining readers at an aggressive pace. A simple Alexa check shows that in the short 2-3 months it has been up it has already risen to a top 30k site in the world. It is rare to see a site move up the ranks so quickly. Of course, now that 1/2 million DesignM.ag readers have seen it I am sure the numbers will only increase. I’m familiar with the guy behind this project and can honestly say he knows what he is doing. The writers they have assembled have a nice tone to their writing and don’t sound like a bunch of corporate hacks. Get familiar with the name because you are going to see this site more and more.

Check the site out and come back and comment about what you think about it.

Here is a list of some other posts I enjoyed checking out.
