We wanted a name that was two words in total, where one of the words was “tech,” and the phrase made grammatical sense in the English language. Enter Consuming Tech: one of the only two word phrases we could find available. ConsumingTech is designed to be an open-ended name that allows us to evolve along with technology and always cover whatever it is that comes our way in the future. Just because Windows is called Windows today doesn’t mean that Bill Gates won’t change his mind tomorrow, and in fact, some technology experts are predicting as much. It’s also a name that allows us to put all content from previous domains onto the one.
Even though we haven’t got any one brand name in our domain doesn’t mean you shouldn’t take us seriously. We know tech almost as well as anybody.
ConsumingTech also ran the following domains in the past before all of the work became available on this site:
