Is The Verge your first choice?
I use Google.com/ig as my homepage, by doing this it enables me to insert all sorts of RSS widgets. One of these is The Verge. I've found from that point the first choice I make is clicking through to this site.
It made me think about the clicking behaviour of more of you out there. Do you make this site your first choice for tech news and stories? Or are there other sites out there you go too before popping in here? What draws you to The Verge? The design of the site, the articles, the personalites of the staff?
Not that I'm wanting people to click off The Verge but it would be nice to hear what people choose to get their technology info.
