A cool list of Tech News Websites and the Blogs I follow

For many techies who asked me where to get good tech news everyday, here is my answer. "This article is all about the list of websites and blogs you must follow to keep yourself updated on the latest happenings in technology".

Usually, the websites provide the latest happenings in the form of news content and the blogs help you to learn/understand a specific technology or a topic.
Below is a list of around 20 good websites I visit for technology news. (Covers news on Social Media, Inventions, Happenings, Announcements, Hacks and General). Make a habit of opening few of them at least once a day and read the headlines at least. I have not categorized as mostly all are worth reading and mostly talk everything in common.
