Feb. 2, 2011 - PRLog -- Consumer electronics shopping site Retrevo.com, today announced the winners of the second annual Golden Retrevo Awards recognizing outstanding feats in independent gadget and tech blogging.

“Retrevo is an authority in consumer electronics and over the years we’ve come across some amazing independent tech and gadget blogs,” says Andrew Eisner, Director of Community and Content for Retrevo.com and former Executive Producer of PC World Magazine. “For the Golden Retrevo Awards, we wanted to honor the people behind the blogs, who are passionate about gadgets, and enthusiastic about sharing the tech that makes their lives better.”

Retrevo’s editors and A.I. engine scoured the web for the best and brightest independent gadget and tech blogs across thirteen categories including Mac, Home Theater, GPS, Mobile Art, Media & Music, Apps, Gadget Mods, iStuff, and Gaming. Over 300 blogs were  nominated for the awards.

Getting To Know The 2011 Winners
“We have a variety of winners this year, with blogs that should appeal to a wide range of gadget enthusiasts,” says Jennifer L. Jacobson, project organizer and Director of Public Relations for Retrevo.com. “Some of our more popular winners like Cult of Mac feature in-depth articles about everything Apple. Gaming Angels is a well known blog by a creative team of gals aimed at showcasing the female perspective on the gaming industry.”

“Our all female volunteer staff works hard to bring readers fun and interesting stories,” says Trina Schwimmer, CEO & Founder of GamingAngels.com. “We love writing about the gaming industry and in the process, we encourage other women to enjoy our hobby too. Retrevo has been amazing in consistently recognizing the work it takes to be an independent site.”

“It’s difficult to stand out among the ten million or so blogs in the world, even when your site is devoted to original, useful content,” says HDTV Almanac creator Alfred Poor. “I started my site more than five years ago as a way to share news and commentary about HDTV and more than 1,400 entries later, it has gathered a following. Recognition like the Golden Retrevo Award helps sites like mine rise above the background noise and reach more readers.”

“I started Just Another iPad Blog because I felt the iPad was going to be an amazing, game-changing device that I couldn’t wait to get my hands on,” says Patrick Jordan, founder of Just Another iPad Blog. “I’ve been so happy and humbled to see that there are a readers out there who share my passion. For me, the Golden Retrevo Award is a great way to stand out from the crowd.”

“I started my blog as a way of providing additional information that’s easy to understand for all of my beginning digital camera students,” says Kathy Eyster, Digital Photography Instructor and creator of Essential Digital Camera. “It’s my way to share more information that I have time to present in classes or workshops. Being recognized by Retrevo for a second year is proof that people want to know what I’m sharing, and that I have a lot of dedicated followers in cyberspace.”

“Winning the prestigious Golden Retrevo Award two years in a row is an amazing achievement,” says Andy Smith Creator of  GeoCache: I’m Not Obsessed Right? and GeoSnippits Videos. “I want to thank all our geocaching fans and GeoSnippits viewers out there. It just goes to show how strong the geocaching community around the world really is and we are very proud to be a part of it.”

“I started The Gadgeteer almost 14 years ago because I’ve been fascinated with gadgets and gizmos ever since I was a little kid, who dismantled anything with a motor or magnet,” says Julie Strietelmeier, founder of The Gadgeteer. “Being recognized for doing something I love doing is the icing on the cake of my life. I love it.”
