Ever wonder what they get you when you “retire” at Engadget? Last month at a team dinner (my last as editor-in-chief of the site!), my main man and freshman editor Josh Topolsky presented me with this, um, “gold” vintage Casio calculator watch. The nerd humor truly knows no bounds.
I’ve been saving a lot of good stories for my tell-all book about the early days of blogging pro (and I will write that damned book eventually, even if it all seems quaint by the time it’s out), but I know the question of Brian Lam’s and my armistice seems to linger on, and for [...]
So we’re calling the new site gdgt (spoken as four letters, like g-d-g-t, but you can say “gadget” if you like), and we’ve still got our work cut out for us before we have a proper launch. But there was one thing Peter and I knew we had to take care of early on, something [...]
Strange how the timing on some of this stuff worked out: my last day as editor of Engadget is almost exactly one year to the day after Josh, Pete, and I — the first three editors-in-chief of the site — published our letter to Palm. (Naturally, I had to follow it up in my new [...]
It’s true, my last day as Engadget’s editor-in-chief will be late next month (my official announcement is here). Without question, this has been the hardest decision I’ve ever made, but I know it’s the right one. And as much as I’m looking forward to new challenges (and grateful they’re not Motorola-related), I’m also really excited [...]
Been pretty caught up over the last couple of weeks — especially in our iPhone 3G review and coverage — but one lasting memory I’m definitely going to take from 2008 is Bill’s last day at Microsoft. One Engadget commenter made a poignant remark that kind of brought it all home: Who would you rather [...]
Well, looks like my man Mike finally found occasion to write about me (little does he know, I’ve spent years plotting my way onto TechCrunch). Granted, I’m not commenting on that (or any) rumors about my career and future, but it’s never a bad thing to have people interested, right? It’s certainly a lot better [...]
This is Engadget. This is Engadget when Apple launches a new iPhone. Any questions? Thanks again to everyone who stopped by today to read our coverage of the iPhone 3G launch — it’s always an extraordinary amount of fun and a real honor to be the go-to place for big news in the gadget world. [...]
I know Steve is a daily Engadget reader, but I never fully understood why until now.
So last week I was invited to attend and speak at a semi-exclusive pre-trade show press event; not at all unusual or noteworthy in and of itself, but there are some things about it that some might find gray. In the interest of transparency, I figured I’d see what you think. Among other things, our [...]
