Since 2005, Zatz Not Funny’s beat has been the digital lifestyle. We aim to cut through the noise to provide timely and practical streaming media and smart home insight. Our editorial approach harkens back to the independent gadget blog era by uncovering the smaller, yet no-less-meaningful, stories that mainstream media may overlook or have yet to discover. The site is consistently acknowledged as a top tech blog and the team has deep roots within the community – participating in various symposia and events such as CES, The Cable Show, and DEMO. In addition to their writing here, they’ve produced white papers, ebooks, and research reports, with select blog content syndicated to various mainstream media such as USA Today and the San Francisco Chronicle.
