I used to be a big fan

What do you like best?

GigaOM has new owner and content as of 8/2015. The site is easy to read and well designed.

What do you dislike?

Since the new owners took over, the new articles are not as good as the old ones. Before being sold, the content was much better and provided more current information and original news and content. The do not provide any deep insight into a company and don't profile emerging to new companies. I would like to learn more about what's on the horizon versus a rehash of Apple's latest OS.

Their reports require a lot more detail and need to include a larger number of smaller and emerging companies in emerging areas.

Recommendations to others considering the product

There are other companies that provide much better reporting of than GigaOM, I was very impressed with the work they did in the beginning but it seems to have declined greatly over the past year or so.

Most unresponsive reporters in the tech blog business

What do you like best?

Site is well designed and they do a decent job of covering companies named Apple and Google.

What do you dislike?

If you company name is not Apple or Google, or you don't have any personal ties to a reporter at GigaOM - then you can forget about getting covered by these guys. They are easily the most unresponsive group of reporters I think I've ever worked with. Not the case with TechCrunch, Pando, ReadWrite, etc.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Don't bother reaching out. You're wasting your time.
