Default Pocket Camcorder Articles

Stops a few years ago, Engadget changed things so I don't know if manufacturers stopped or Engadget stopped tagging them that way.

OK, found out what has happened with Engadget and why it is going the way it is. The Chief and a lot of staff left a few years ago according to Wikipedia, and in recent months then new Chief went. It was bad enough to have multiple versions of the sane tag used on different articles (so you could not just go to one or two tags to search all articles on a subject or product) but then they started eliminating useful tags to isolate, and now I'm looking up generic tags and finding articles stopping being lusted, and don't know how to look things up. But I also found that Engadget came from ex gizmodo employees, and the guys from a few years ago have started a new site:

http://www.theverge.com/

If anybody knows of better ones, please let us know, so we can find pocket hybrid cameras etc pocket camcorders news.


These sites have to learn that to make tags truly useful to look up articles, to use the right tag every time, and make a hierarchy of right tags to describe different versions of product subcategories. They could at least put a tag report button to help people let them know if an article is mis-tagged. They could have an auto rate system, that as an article is listed, the software produces most likely tags and the writer verifies and eliminates or adds tags (that the software suggests right versions for again). They could have multilevel of tags listings, from most important level to inconsequential level (For instance, if HP is mentioned as another phone producer in an article on A Samsung Mobile phone).
