I Love CES Again

This was my seventh year I've covered CES, and after the first day on the show floor I was ready to wash my hands of the whole spectacle for good. Then I went to the Sands, and all of a sudden I never wanted to leave. » 1/09/15 12:56pm 1/09/15 12:56pm

Welcome to CES 2015!

Oh hello! It's time again for the Consumer Electronics Show, that yearly bacchanal of gadgets, gizmos, and sweaty assurances that this is the year 3D printing will catch on (honest). We're here, as always, to share it with you. » 1/04/15 6:10pm 1/04/15 6:10pm

Our Favorite Gizmodo Posts of 2014

We posted many thousands (!) of stories in this past year, but these are the ones that stuck with us. Some are dumb, some are serious, two are about cults. And each of them of them is worth another look. » 12/30/14 10:20am 12/30/14 10:20am

A Brief History of Brief Histories

We have a long tradition of providing summarized encapsulations of topics that span a large swath of time. Here is an abbreviated chronicle of those bygone days: » 12/19/14 4:00pm 12/19/14 4:00pm

Welcome to Toyland

We love toys around here. We love writing about them, playing with them, shooting each other in the face with them. But while we try to find any excuse we can to share them with you, there are some toys that just aren't quite tech enough to fit on Gizmodo. That's why we've created Toyland. » 10/26/14 8:22am 10/26/14 8:22am

What Do You Want Gizmodo To Do More Of?

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. » 7/25/14 3:15pm 7/25/14 3:15pm

The Site That Tells You if Sites Are Down Is Down

Downforeveryoneorjustme.com is the site we all use to figure out if sites are actually down or not. But right now, that site appears to be down. I think? Is it really down? Or is it just me? I can't tell. » 7/07/14 1:21pm 7/07/14 1:21pm

The Best Gizmodo Stories of 2013

We've posted thousands of pieces in 2013, so to pluck out a few dozen and to call them our favorite is in some ways impossibly arbitrary. But that doesn't mean we didn't try. » 12/31/13 4:08pm 12/31/13 4:08pm

The Gadgets We Really Want This Year

We see a lot of gadgets here at Gizmodo. And as the holidays come barreling towards us, we like to offer some of them up as ideas for gifts you can give to the special folks in your life. But this isn't that; this is the stuff we want. Oh and we want it so bad. » 12/20/13 1:40pm 12/20/13 1:40pm

Undead Teddy Ruxpin and Elmo: Thrift Shop

If Furbies have taught us anything, it's that felt-covered animatronics are not to be trusted—they are to be feared. Especially when two of your childhood icons are revived as hip-pop-spouting zombies, as they are in this nightmare-inducing cover of the Macklemore and Ryan Lewis hit. » 10/23/13 7:40pm 10/23/13 7:40pm

A Saturday's Work at Gizmodo in Mouse Movement

While you folks are doing your Saturday thing and maybe checking out ol' Giz now and then, somebody's gotta write it. That somebody is me, and this is what it looks like. From a cursor's-eye perspective anyway. » 6/22/13 9:00pm 6/22/13 9:00pm

New Faces, New Places

Over the last several weeks, you may have noticed some changes at Gizmodo—and not just the layout. We've been sharpening our coverage of design, concepts, and the objects and ideas that are shaping our world, and growing our team to help us do it. Now it's time to meet the people who are leading that charge—starting… » 5/17/13 1:56pm 5/17/13 1:56pm

We're taking the literal Gizmodo TV show on the literal road to give you guys a chance to see some clips before we air on BBC America on March 18th. (10:20PM after Top Gear!)

YouTube Puts the Final Meta Nail in the Harlem Shake's Coffin

If you somehow haven't had quite enough of the Harlem Shake yet, you might be inclined to surf on over to YouTube and type in "Do The Harlem Shake." And if you were to do that, YouTube'll interpret it as a direct order, and unleash a meta-jig of its own. Can this be the final, referential nail in the viral coffin?… » 3/01/13 12:19pm 3/01/13 12:19pm

Our Best Posts of 2012

Our best stories from 2012 aren't necessarily tied to the biggest news events or the flashiest gear. You won't find the election or the Olympics or any tablets on this list. John McAfee is, though, as is David Pogue. » 12/21/12 3:40pm 12/21/12 3:40pm
