What website(s) do you use to stay with it?
For several years I had a subscription to PC Pro which I used to leaf through to help me feel I had my finger on the pulse. Never got round to renewing it at my current school though.
Just now someone handed me a CD printed with Lightscribe, which I'd never heard of although it's been around for ages, and I decided I need to work at this. So are there any websites you glance at daily to see what's new in the IT world...?

I take a peek at TheRegister.co.uk once or twice a day. It's pretty good but I too am looking for other sites which can keep me up to date. I had one of those moments when the Intel i processors come out and I had no idea what they were!

TheRegister mainly. But I also find a lot out via people I follow on Twitter and tech-specific blogs like CouchDB, GeeXboX, Mozilla Labs, Coding Horror etc - they sometimes link to other interesting things.

Slashdot, LWN, some planets of pet projects, CWN and (ironically) the BBC, for the popular view.

To be fair lightscribe has never exactly been a roaring success so I doubt you're the only one who hasnt heard of it!
School has a subscription to PC Pro, plus The Reg and Edugeek. That pretty much covers it for me

Digg.com is one of my favourites. Watching angry Americans rant about everything is fun.

The reg for devlopments, and bit-tech.net for the hardware side of things (more enthusiastic oriented) but it still helps...

I use the Register too, and also look at ZDNet UK | Business IT News, Reviews and White Papers for tech professionals
I also look at the BBC on a regular basis to keep up to date with general knowledge.

Another shout for The Register here.
The Inquirer is good for hardware stuff.
Reddit/r/technology and Reddit/r/Science are also good ones.
I would say The BBC but their Technology stories are usually about a week behind everyone elses.

RSS feeds are your friend - you can check a bunch of sites for interesting stuff in 5 mins.
Internet Storm Center at Sans.org
Securiteam Blogs SecuriTeam Blogs
Bunch of technet blogs - Ask the directory service team, for example: Ask the Directory Services Team
El Reg as discussed.
Bit-tech's alright (recent iSCSI article made me cringe).

The Reg, Slashdot and Arstechnica are all sites that I like to check.

I used to be on Digg all of the time until I noticed that Reddit had the same links submitted but 3 days before Digg.
