Declassifiled has broken numerous stories about the regulatory and product development activities of the tech industry over the last two years. Below is a partial list of the reports from this blog that have received media recognition and the publications where they appeared:
- Kelsey D. Atherton of Popular Science wrote up Declassifiled’s 2015 report about the airborne wind turbine that Google is developing with the support of the U.S. government. The piece also received a mention from MakeUseOf in a follow-up article about the progress of the project.
- Futurism picked up the article entitled “IBM is developing smart glasses for the visually impaired” about Big Blue’s efforts in the wearable device industry. The initiative is one of numerous basic research projects from the Armonk giant that were revealed first on Declassifiled. Earlier this year, this blog broke IBM’s attempt to create a new type of battery for electronic vehicles.
- PCR, the trade magazine for the U.K.’s PC vendor community, covered Declassifiled’s scoop about Nvidia’s virtual reality hardware ambitions. From there, the story spread to DigitalTrends, PC Perspective, Hexus, RoadToVR and numerous other publications in multiple countries. Even some European tech blogs ended up picking up the news and covering it in their native languages.
- Special mention: The above Nvidia report was also the headline story in an online newscast from NCIX Tech Tips, a channel operated by Netlink Computer, one of Canada’s largest consumer electronics stores. The video in which Declassifiled’s piece was covered has received more than 91,000 views to date and counting.
- CraveOnline‘s Paul Tamburro wrote up a Declassifiled story about Sony’s efforts to re-imagine modern smartglasses design. Like IBM, the Japanese giant is paying close attention to the wearable market, though it’s focusing primarily on consumers rather than corporate and healthcare industry users.
And there are many other smaller publications that have likewise stumbled upon Declassifiled’s original reporting and decided to incorporate it into their stories. Two notable examples are the online edition of Ilta-Sanomat, the second most widely-circulated paper in Finland, and Germany’s VR Nerds.
