I've been a subscriber to the re:Charged newsletter since day one and it has genuinely stopped me from visiting any tech-related websites. I don't have to worry about missing anything and if I don't feel like catching up I can always just delete the email anyway.

Owens commentary on the news always feels on point and puts thing in another interesting perspective. ❤️

Pros:

Very well focused, high quality content

Cons:

The community is still a bit new, hope that grows quickly. :)

I've been a part of Owen's beta over the last few months for re:Charged and I'm a big fan. It's timely, interesting, and relevant content. It's like he knows about the stories that matters to me and cuts through the BS to deliver the relevant parts.

Pros:

Timely, distilled, and interesting news with solid takes on them.

Cons:

There were mobile formatting issues but those are now resolved

I've loved being part of the re:Charged beta group and it's really a phenomenal product. Owen does an incredible job of producing the kind of content I want to read without cluttering it with ads, clickbait, or nonsense. I used to be subscribed to dozens of tech feeds and would just scroll by them all saying the same things. With re:Charged I just see the things I would want to read anyways.

Loving it, happy to be part of this!

Note: Been longer than 1 month but shorter than 1 year. Come on PH :P

Pros:

NO ADS, succinct, great place to discuss

Cons:

Please.

I'm part of the re:Charged community before it was cool and tbh it has been always cool.

The content itself is great, it bleeds @ow's personality which is great! I've been a a fan of the podcast for a while and to get that in a daily basis is fantastic.

Saves me a LOT OF TIME and protects me from autoplaying videos.

Pros:

Great and insightful content - No bs and straight to the point.

Cons:

It cover the highlights of the day, so if some shit goes down during the day you'll only get a digest the next day, I want moar.

I've been a subscriber since the beginning and out of all the newsletter I receive, including the many I accidentally subscribe to, this is one of the only ones I look forward to and mention to friends and colleagues. It keeps you up to date, without having to filter through all the tech news sites there are nowadays.

Pros:

Great content and the only newsletter I actively read and look forward to. Rarely mentions something I'm already aware of.

Cons:

None so far

Email newsletters really are enjoying a resurgance and re:Charged is definitely one of the ones I open every day.

Pros:

Fresh take on the tech news, rarely covers things I already know

Cons:

None so far

I've been using re:Charged since day 1 of the earliest alpha. It's changed the way I approach news - I have learnt to rely on Owen's daily emails to keep myself updated on the tech world. Even if I'm already aware of a news story, what's great is that the daily email is still worth reading.

The community is young but ties the whole thing together. In the time that it's been around, I've already found my own views challenged. It's a lovely, slow-web way to remove yourself slightly from whatever bubble you find yourself in.

It's worth paying for. Stop wasting time trying to play catch up. Rely on re:Charged.

Pros:

You can forget about trying to chase the news and know that the most important stuff will be in your inbox in the morning.

Cons:

Not sure there's anything as yet.
