Pinglio was started in September of 2010 with the dedication to covering the latest tech news and constructing easy to read How To’s. It was also important to create a simple layout that provides distraction-free articles with high-quality graphics. We still live by these principles today, and we’re doing it better than before.

What’s the name?

The name choice was random, but it seemed to stick well with our goal here: simple. Our tagline “No packets lost” goes hand-in-hand with our name, and you can read more about that explanation here.
