    Yeah I tried searching from the dashboard, but most of the themes look amateurish.

    I've checked many premium themes, but still haven't found a good one.

    I just need a good theme news theme like the one on the big tech blogs - TechCrunch, Mashable, VentureBeat....

    well those guys fork out some big $$$ to get those, you get what you pay for. so if you want a really good theme hire a designer.

    I would go for Thesis, it is a clean theme, and then modify it a bit via css. But it is premium.

    @Randall, I know the thread is a bit dated but... aadi's theme which I believe is Fresh Life theme from theme junkie. I have a scaled down version of the Fresh Life Theme at The Stocks It's great for SEO too.

    There is a new clone of the 2010 Mashable.com WordPress theme called Mashlife and it seems to be a really nice, well made theme that is actually very affordable at $39 for a single license with multi-site and developer licenses available as well. Here is a screenshot:

    I hope this helps!
