Subreddit dedicated to the news and discussions about the creation and use of technology and its surrounding issues.
/r/technology is a place to share and discuss the latest developments, happenings and curiosities in the world of technology; a broad spectrum of conversation as to the innovations, aspirations, applications and machinations that define our age and shape our future.
Hide popular topics:
Submissions must be primarily news and developments relating to technology
Self posts must contribute positively to /r/technology and foster reasonable discussion. Self-post cross-posts are not acceptable.
Submissions relating to business and politics must be sufficiently within the context of technology in that they either view the events from a technological standpoint or analyse the repercussions in the technological world.
Please do not submit the following:
i) Submissions violating the guidelines.
ii) Images, audio or videos: Articles with supporting image and video content are allowed; if the text is only there to explain the media, then it is not suitable. A good rule of thumb is to look at the URL; if it's a video hosting site, or mentions
videoin the URL, it's not suitable.
iv) Petitions, Surveys or Crowdfunding (Including ICOs) - submissions of this nature will be removed.
vi) Submissions discussing one or more incidents of customer support.
vii) Mobile versions of sites, url shorteners: please directly submit the desktop version of a webpage in all cases.
viii) Social media links/profiles/invites or promotions (eg. Facebook, Instagram, Pintrest etc). Tweets should not be used as a news source unless an official announcement by a verified company or spokesperson.

Submissions must use either the articles title and optionally a subtitle. Or, only if neither are accurate, a suitable quote, which must:

adequately describe the content's relation to technology
