You can get insightful reviews of everything technical—from keyboards to digital cameras to joysticks—at Street Tech. Intended to avoid the “hype and boosterism” surrounding many tech products, Street Tech reviews are honest, to-the-point, and based on personal experiences. The reviews come complete with a suggested retail price, contact information, and a product rating of up to five batteries. Past reviews are archived on the site by subject. Visitors to Street Tech will also find periodic instructions on do-it-yourself projects, upgrades, and maintenance for computer hardware and electronics. Besides reviews and how-tos, the site has a real-time chat area that allows users to share their experiences and information about the latest high-tech news, computer hardware, consumer electronics, and cool tools. The conferencing area includes daily technology news and reports. Street Tech also keeps participants up to date on the latest books, catalogs, and web sites related to digital technology and do-it-yourself hardware and maintenance. In addition, visitors can learn the meaning of technical terms, such as “jabber control,” by reading the “term of the day” feature.
