The Verge is the name of the new Tech Gadget news site. Right now the group also ex-engadgeters are operating under This is My next. To be honest, I quite like their existing home. Their new home and name is The Verge as per AllThingsD. This Is My Next has confirmed it too. Verge will be launching under its new name in fall and has signed up BMW as their sponsor.
This Is My Next had some great coverage in the recent months and they were the first to break many stories.
Pascal-Emmanuel Gobry has an interesting post on why The Verge will be very popular in France. Verge in French means Penis. I checked in Google translate and it is true, as per the translation. Launching a new tech blog in the world of TechCrunch’s and Engadget’s is difficult. Picking up a name and reserving a domain name is super difficult. In a way I empathize with Verge and just try to picture its English meaning.
