Jacqui Cheng, editor in chief of tech product site Wirecutter, writes about its overhaul.
Cheng writes, “As we’ve grown over the last few years, we have expanded our coverage to encompass things beyond TVs, laptops, printers, headphones, and kitchen appliances. We’ve been feverishly adding coverage on outdoor gear, smart home devices, home furniture, and stuff for parents (of both children and pets)—the list goes on and on, and much of it blurs the line between our tech and home coverage.
“That’s why we’ve retired The Wirecutter and The Sweethome names and launched a unified website in their place to be the definitive review source for our readers: Wirecutter.
“With The New York Times Company powering our efforts, we realized that the best way to help our readers is to combine all of our coverage into a single site in order to find high-quality reviews on the things they need. We don’t want you to have to think about which site to go to in order to find running gear, or waste time thinking about where our recommendations can be found for learning & STEM toys. The existing guides that you’ve come to know haven’t gone away — you’ll be able to find them all right here, with plenty of new ones as well.”
