Technology News Sites

I am looking for good technology news Web sites. Mainly because CNet (news.com.com) has changed UI again and it seems they did not think too much about usability.
Any suggestions ?

Google's meta-news is pretty good: http://news.google.com/news/en/us/technology.html

BTW, what is that you don't like in terms of usability about the new News.com layout? It does take a little longer than before to load though.

Messy links with non-standard appearance. Now you can't see immediately what article you already visited. Also they changed the rule that defines what kind of articles they show in the righ-side column. Now there are "Most Popular Headlines" instead of chronologically sorted list of all news. I do not know how they set that "Most Popular" criterion.
