What is GIZMODO about?

Gizmodo is a technology weblog about consumer electronics. It is part of the Gawker Media network run by Nick Denton. It’s known for up-to-date coverage of the technology industry and the personal, humorous, sometimes very inappropriate writing style of the contributors.

The blog, launched in 2002, was originally edited by Peter Rojas, but he was recruited by Weblogs, Inc. to launch their similar technology blog Engadget. By mid-2004, Gizmodo and Gawker together were bringing in revenue of approximately $6,500 per month.

In 2005, VNU and Gawker Media formed an alliance to republish Gizmodo across Europe, with VNU translating the content into French, German, Dutch, Spanish, Italian and Portuguese, and adding local European-interest material.

In April 2007, Allure Media launched Gizmodo Australia, under license from Gawker Media and incorporating additional Australian content.

In November 2007, the Dutch magazine license was taken over by HUB Uitgevers.

A Gizmodo blogger captured the first photos from the floor of CES 2007, and according to Reuters, journalists at the (simultaneous) Macworld debated whether Gizmodo or Engadget had the better live coverage of Steve Jobs’s 2007 keynote.

Apple, Inc.‘s Steve Jobs noted that Gizmodo was his favorite gadget blog, further fueling a long-standing feud between Gizmodo and Engadget.

A videographer for Gawker Media, Gizmodo’s publisher, disrupted several presentations held at CES 2008 by secretly turning off flatscreen TVs using TV-B-Gone remotes. This resulted in the videographer, Richard Blakeley, being barred from CES 2008, and any future CES events.

In September 2008, Gizmodo Brazil was launched with Portuguese content.

The current main editor of Gizmodo is Brian Lam.

My question is… How famous is the blog gets after they had found the next generation of the Iphone???

In October 2009, security software developer Sophos detected embedded scareware in fake Suzuki ads hosted on the site. Gizmodo had been tricked into hosting the ads by hackers posing as Suzuki employees.

In April 2010, details over Gizmodo’s possession of a 4th generation iPhone prototype were revealed. The phone was discovered by an unnamed individual who claimed to have found the device left on a stool at Gourmet Haus Staudt, a bar in Redwood City on March 18th, 2010.

As we mentioned from the CES, Lenovo had prepared its first all-in-one multi-technology, and here it is. The C310 offers a 20-inch screen-as we say-compatible with pinches, an AMD Athlon dual-core, 4 GB RAM, ATI Mobility Radeon (unspecified) and as was normal in the brand teams, much, much software (you know, trial versions and other programs come-memory).

As for appearance, color that copper may be accompanied by a keyboard and mouse with so little grace, not to the liking of many, but let’s not forget that here is space. For $ 649 (472 euros) can be yours from April.

T3 is reporting that Mike Tedesco, Microsoft‘s Senior Product Manager for WindowsBU, stated that a version of Microsoft Office for the iPad is “something that we’re looking at.” Tedesco stressed that he couldn’t make any official announcement today, but from the sounds of things, Microsoft is at least considering a version of Office for Apple’s newest creation.

The iPad already has the ability to run a productivity suite — Apple has created iPad-specific versions of its own iWork programs, Pages, Numbers, and Keynote for $9.99 each — but as T3 notes, bringing Office over to the iPad would go a long way toward establishing it as a legitimate productivity device. Whether those Office apps would be bundled together, offered individually, or cost as much as or more than iWork is, of course, impossible to say at this point. We’ll keep you updated as we learn more about Microsoft’s intentions.

Top 5 desktops by CNET

Desktops have the advantage over laptops that the spare parts and extensions tend to be standardized, resulting in lower prices and greater availability. For example, the form factor of the motherboard is standardized, like the ATX form factor. Desktops have several standardized expansion slots, like Conventional PCI or PCI express, while laptops only tend to have one mini PCI slot and one PC card slot (or Express Card slot). This means that a desktop can be customized and upgraded to a greater extent than laptops.
