This evening I’m giving a talk to my daughter’s Girl Scouts troop about careers in technology. I’m going to tell them that women have done amazing things in tech. I’m going to tell them that they too can do anything they set their minds to in this arena. But I will be lying to them.
In honor of July 15, known extremely occasionally as the “Day Without Sports” (because no professional sports air on television), NYC-based PR firm MSL Group circulated a list on behalf of Netflix of streamable rom coms and sports movies that both men and women will enjoy. Thank you, Netflix, now go shove your dick in…
“Congratulations on your white penis — because if you have one of those, you probably have a very different experience of the internet,” explained Jon Oliver on last night’s Last Week Tonight. And in this 15-minute video, he explains why that’s the case.
When you walk out of the Älmhult train station, there’s not much to see. To the west is a string of filthy box cars on the railroad, and to the east, a small park with no people. TripAdvisor will tell you that there is only one thing to do in the tiny Swedish village: Go to IKEA.
Tech companies have a pretty awful track record where talking to women is concerned. But after running damage control on horrible campaign after horrible campaign, you'd think they'd try to avoid making the same mistakes again. And you would be wrong. Enter OnePlus' new lovely-ladies-only invite giveaway. Because, as…
The internet is buzzing right now with the latest, greatest (and potentially fake) Worst Thing Ever. Meet Code Babes, the stripping amalgam of everything that's wrong with tech culture today.
Anyone who genuinely cares about anything is bound to sound like a broken record from time to time. If you actually give a shit about a problem (and I don't mean a "problem" like "the co-op is out of Honeycrisps," I mean a PROBLEM PROBLEM), then you don't just lodge your complaint and sit back down while the world…
Ever read the comments on a popular YouTube video? There is no faster way to strip yourself of faith in humanity. It's a cesspool. And this is coming from someone who writes for the Gawker network. We know a little something about rowdy comments sections. YouTube's is worse, but it's finally about to smarten up.
Here at Gizmodo, we celebrate Objectify a Male Tech Writer Day. Join in on the festivities by PhotoShopping our sexiest writer, Kyle Wagner, into the most compromising positions. Think slutty schoolgirl. Sweaty fireman. Sexy Subway sandwich artist.
History remembers technology progressing at the speed of Moore's Law, galloping between semiconductors and clock speeds. But the real challenge has always been getting people to accept it into their lives. And as Alexis Madrigal at the Atlantic reminds us, that has, from time to time, meant overcoming ingrained…
There are now two female staffers writing for Gizmodo, myself and Leslie Horn, and neither of us blew anyone for our job.
Hello there, shopper! You seem like the type who would be interested in some
tablets. Can we interest you in our latest Windows 8
tablet, with the revolutionary
Metro UI? It feels great in
a sultry paid actress's crotch

Nobody likes sexism or the obnoxious jerks who jeer women walking down the street. But there's a pretty good chance that New York's new $20,000 "research" investment in an app to report offending males might not be the best way to do something about it.
CES is just around the corner, which means junk like this is showing up in my inbox. Hey, [REDACTED], did you put a butt in your email to remind me how shitty your products are? Because that's what I'm thinking.
I don't know if Google's motives are pure or not, but this is wrong: They are refusing to advertise CougarLife, a dating site for mature women looking for younger men. However, they accept sites for mature men seeking young women.
In honor of Valentine's Day, here's a mouse pad that no one who is in a healthy relationship would ever own.
