Gizmodo is a popular technology weblog about consumer electronics. It is part of the Gawker Media network run by Nick Denton.

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 $6,000 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.

People that post on Gizmodo are often considered insipid, and their comments are read with disdain by many on the web. Gizmodo's articles are also considered biased and annoying at best.

The current main editor of Gizmodo is Brian Lam.

I'm a gadget lover.  I have so many doodahs and diddlywinks that I can't even keep track of half of them.  I have a drawer full of power cords from dozens of gadgets that I can't even figure out what plugs into which.    This addiction would be a problem if:  (a) I bought every single item I thought "looked cool" and (b) Gizmodo wasn't available.    Gizmodo is my go-to website for reviews on consumer electronics.  All of their reviews are …
