…Engadget is now king of the blogs?

If you ever had doubts about the fact that the way we get our news is changing, check out the totals from Engadget’s page views on the day of the iPhone announcement: 10 million. That’s right, seven zeros. I myself probably contributed about 100 of those at least as I refreshed in an effort to get up to the minute coverage of the keynote address. As the story points out, “by the time television and newspapers got to the story, the really interested readers were already on to the next thing”. Sure, TV, newspapers and other old world media still bring the news to those who just don’t care to get theirs as it happens, but when it comes to breaking stories, the blog is king.
