“Liveblogging” and the joys of instant news

It might have been swallowed by the hype surrounding the current World Cup, but this week sees the E3 conference kick off in Los Angeles. It’s the annual gaming industry conference that has mutated into a gaudy hybrid between a fair-ground and a trade show, despite attempts in the past few years to squash it into a more manageable size. What’s caught our eye this year is the abundance of ‘live-blogs’ that are coming out of the big speeches from Microsoft, Nintendo and Sony as well as similar blogs following apples recent press conference introducing the new iPhone 4.

It’s now possible to follow such events on a second by second basis, constantly scrolling down your sony vaio laptop screen searching for new morsels on the latest tech. The process normally involves multiple writers tapping away furiously on their laptops as they watch the keynote speeches conveying not just the facts but audience reactions, opinions and even a few pictures to help the readers at home feel like they’re really there.

It just goes to show the changes that have taken place in journalism over the last few years. All it used to take was a notepad, a pencil and a ‘nose for a good story’ (at least that’s what they’d like you to think) but now it takes a laptop, a sturdy internet connection and a dell 1525 charger. The way that we consume news has changed dramatically and that’s not just for tech announcements but also stories of global importance such as the recent oil spill. That’s why it’s more important than ever to buy laptop battery chargers from a name you can trust so that you never miss a beat. Laptop Power UK are dedicated to providing the best range of laptop battery chargers across a range of brands and models, so you know exactly where to look for a toshiba equium a100-147 charger or a packard bell sadp-65kba charger. In a world where news travels faster than ever, we think the same should be true of laptop chargers!
