We made some comments earlier about how Editor-in-Chief Joshua Topolsky’s departure – as well as seven others from Engadget – seemed to signal the beginning of the end for the site. We were right. While the remaining Engadget staff is a great crew, There’s little doubt in my mind that Aol is going to screw everything up and that somehow the exodus has robbed the tech/gadget blog of a lot of its great talent.
While a full site still isn’t slated to be up until this fall, one of the best parts of the Engadget lineup – the podcast helmed by Topolsky, Miller, and Patel, is making an appearance in the meantime to tide us over. And I can dig it. Those guys can make the nerdiest jokes in the world regarding the gadgets. Nerds only, plz. We at FleshEatingZipper, although bitter rivals with all other tech and gadget web sites by proxy, warmly welcome our new competitors!
