Site: Gizmodo- Au
Gizmodo is an awesome place to go if you feel the need to get your geek on. It’s Australian branch – Gizmodo – Au – is the obvious choice for the latest news and discussion on tech, gadgets, geeky interests including gaming and entertainment for the tech minded.
I have spent many a happy hour perusing the offerings on this very polished and informative site.
One of the best features of Gizmodo is the head to head comparisons they run on all sorts of things (mostly gadgets and tech but also cars and other gizmological stuff). That and some of the discussions that go on are a reason to bookmark this site and to visit regularly. Better yet subscribe to their news feed and get your geek fix dropping in via your favourite news aggregator throughout the day.
Unlike some other sites of its ilk there is not much in the way of offensive behaviour on the site so it is safe to let the kids browse and perhaps be introduced to the geek mindset. Yes. No. Maybe. Doesn’t matter.
Whilst it lacks the community feel of somewhere like some of the forum sites out there it benefits from the clean distraction free presentation and making the subject matter the main focus as opposed to the discussion.
Gizmodo we love you, don’t go changing.
Gizmodo is a great place to get your tech fix for the day and isn’t just anywhere on the web it really is somewhere on the web.
