I'd like to find one news site that has everything and is relatively fast. I'm looking at CNN now, and I like it but it is pretty big and sometimes slow.

I especially like tech news. I had been just using Yahoo, but they are kind of big on the Hollywood gossip and statistics.

Which one do you guys like?

For tech news, I like.... (in no particular order)

Slashdot
Digg/Techology
Ars Technica
The Tech Report
and my most recent find, Technologizer

For Mac stuff, I like MacNN, Apple Matters, and MacDailyNews (although the latter is an uber-fanboy site, don't dare make an even slightly negative Apple comment there).

For general news, usually CNN or MSNBC.

news.google.com - with no search criteria specified it returns latest stories from various wire services, etc. With search criteria you get what you ask for.

USA Today. Have always liked the organization of the site, as well as the journalists.

The Economist (though that's not really news)

NY Times
CNN

....and facebook...

some of the live feed status messages from some of the Apple fan groups I don't remove from the feed post links to Apple news and non-Apple news related sites (like Apple Insider for one and CNN for the other).

I was using Yahoo! since September 2009, which came into my email, since Rogers (ISP) uses Yahoo for their customer's mail accounts.

Now, I've switched ISP's, which currently use Windows Live for their email, so whatever powers MSN/Sympatico.

I did like Yahoo! though. Had some really good articles.
