does technology news only happen on friday

Published Categorized as technology, teletext

RTÉ has a new tech news portal and a fine looking thing it is. the content is of high quality too. its in conjunction with and the site is here.

but my 2KB of woe with this is that, for purchased-in content, why does this ‘portal’ make the old mistakes of web 1.0 in the ajax age, and make Friday the tech news day. news happens when it happens, it can be published on or off site with wonderful CMS and work flow management tools, so why devise a special day for tech news. also the RSS feed from the tech news page is for the business site. but unless the tech news goes daily I wont need the RSS feed that does not exist.

BTW the same issue applies to business news / aertel p130, it happens at the weekend too, ok not as much but it does happen.
