Since 2005, Zatz Not Funny’s beat has been the connected home and digital lifestyle — exploring digital media (even when it’s analog) and the tools used to consume it. Beyond industry news, we also aim to provide analysis and practical tutorials. We’re consistently acknowledged as a top tech blog and remain active in the community – participating in various symposia and events such as CES, The Cable Show, and DEMO. In addition to our work here, we produce timely and relevant white papers, ebooks, and research reports, in addition to select blog content having been syndicated to various mainstream web destinations such as USA Today and the San Francisco Chronicle.

Our goal is to offer useful and timely information. But we do have bills to pay. As such, we employ several advertising methods that include graphical banner ads, contextual ads, and affiliate marketing. The goal is to display relevant information that readers find helpful, versus annoying. We do not accept payment for product reviews, nor do we run sponsored posts.
