MacVoices #13135: Jim Tanous Launches The New Tech News Site, TekRevue
TekRevue is the newest tech news and information site on the web, and we’ve got the founder and head guy, Jim Tanous, to tell us about it. Jim talks about why, in an already rich environment, he wanted to do something a little different, and what TekRevue will bring to the party. Jim explains what aspects of tech (and not just Apple and Mac) they will and won’t cover, why gaming will have a place on the site, and why he is taking a non-standard approach to hardware and software reviews. The challenges and benefits of covering the tech world when not sitting in the middle of Silicon Valley, how his previous experiences have shaped his journalistic style and more are all part of a discussion about the birth of this new site.

Jim M. Tanous runs TekRevue, a general interest technology site covering the most important stories each day from the world of Mac, Windows, Mobile, and Gaming, along with frequent tips and tutorials on how to get the most out of your technology. He also stops by The Mac Observer each week to drop off a tip or two from the Mac Geek Gab podcast. Prior to starting TekRevue, Jim wrote for The Mac Observer, fixed computers for Apple, installed medical records software for McKesson, and assisted attorneys at a New York law firm. Born in Buffalo, NY, Jim now lives in Erie, PA with his wife and young son, and spends most of his day trying to keep the family’s three cats off of his desk.
