It was the perfect afternoon for day drinking: Not too warm, a pleasant breeze, the weekend within easy reach. On a sun-dappled Los Angeles patio around 3:00 p.m., I found myself pleasantly buzzed from both alcohol and cannabis. But I didn’t even have to resort to chugging a beverage while surreptitiously toking under…
Point-and-shoot cameras are stuck in a bad place between smartphones for most people, and mirrorless shooters for people who care more. Nikon’s new DL range is hoping to change all that.
Did you know you were waiting for an epic supercut of SpaceX’s historic Falcon 9 launch and landing, complete with a suspenseful soundtrack and a victorious cheering scene that looks like it was ripped straight out of The Martian? Probably not, but SpaceX has delivered!

Science fiction has rocked cinemas for a century, and the genre has produced many undisputed classics during that time. But which movies are essential viewing for anyone interested in the genre? We broke down the 50 must-watch science fiction films.
Consider this an obituary for iTunes. The death comes just weeks after the arrival of Apple Music, its apparent heir, which was not well received by the typically loyal public. iTunes was just 14 years old.
The evolution of any smartphone is a long, drawn-out process. But when you cram it all down into a four-second GIF, the results are pretty mesmerizing.
The endless mobile keyboard debate: physical versus digital. BlackBerry advocates and other old-school tech geeks swear by one while literally everyone else has moved on to the other. Tactus Technology thinks there's no reason why we can't have both—in the very same device. Physical keyboards that magically raise out…
Spies are everywhere in pop culture (and real life.) We're fascinated with the glamour of espionage, as well as the gritty reality of spycraft. So this week, io9 and Gizmodo decided to celebrate Spy Week, an examination of all things dark and secret.
The internet is understandably excited about the new Star Wars trailer. I have no problems considering myself a mega ultra super fan. I've made pilgrimages to conventions around the country and seeing new live-action Star Wars footage that isn't the prequels is really exciting. But there's one name that's been…
Aerial drone videos, for better or worse, are here to stay, but it's difficult to be too upset about this filming technique's unchecked adoption when it captures video like this.

Gizmodo—and Gawker Media—are moving. We're packing up our cozy little SoHo walkup and heading to a big new office in Union Square. And according to the architects who are designing it, it's going to be very, very cool.
Gizmodo began as a compendium of gadgets; page after page of strictly hardware and gear. But in the decade since, the ways society talks about and interacts with technology have evolved. This site has, too. And as we continue to, I'd like to know what you want to see us doing more of—or less—along the way.
You're sitting at your computer. At work. Reading this post. Take a look around—what do you see? There's a whole lot of wiggle room where the word "office" is concerned, and, from May 17th to the 21st, we'd love for you to come on over and get connected at Gizmodo's Home of the Future.
When you try to imagine what it will be like to live in the future, you might imagine flying cars, robotic butlers, or floating beds. Will we grow our own food? Will TVs still exist? How will we turn the lights on? Seriously, what will our future homes look and feel like? In a few weeks, Gizmodo—with the help and…
Steve Wozniak just sent this fun stunt caught on video a few years ago: Watch him deliver a Mac to Emma, a girl who freaks out when she realizes her idol is at the door carrying her new computer. As Emma's father says in the video: "This is like having your lightbulbs delivered by Thomas Edison." He's totally right. …
