So what’s “Turn On | Press Play” anyway?
It's a publication focused on what's happening in tech and home entertainment. If that sounds generic, it's because it is: everything from technologies and products to content and services falls under the Turn On | Press Play umbrella. So a lot of things to report and comment on, which can be both a blessing and curse for journalists. Not for readers, though!
It's the various points where some or all of the above meet - sometimes to the benefit of consumers, sometimes not so much - that many of the most important developments in digital culture happen today. Those are of special interest to this publication and will always be explored, along with what deserves attention among the numerous products and services competing in the tech and entertainment market today.
New issues of Turn On | Press Play will arrive every Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, with a week-recapping and commenting one on Friday (the only exceptions being national holidays and 20 days during the summer). Special issues are sent out whenever something really important is going down. They're all written by me, Kostas Farkonas, a veteran journalist with 30 years of experience in tech, comms, Internet and gaming reporting.
Here are a few reasons why you’d consider subscribing to Turn On | Press Play.

Avoid the time-wasting clickthroughs. You'll find no stories here based on conjecture, no clickbait-style headlines, no posts of no substance. Just facts, comments and perspective on what's happening now and what's coming next in tech and entertainment.
