Galaxy Note 10+, Alternate Internets, and Bernie's Climate Plan: Best Gizmodo Stories of the Week

Galaxy Note 10+, Alternate Internets, and Bernie's Climate Plan: Best Gizmodo Stories of the Week

This week at Gizmodo, we took a long, hard look at what could have been with our Alternate Internet series, cataloging some of the ways the web could have been different—or still could be. While we didn’t have the time to write a sweeping, The Wheels of Time-length series on what would happen if I was given absolute control over the internet (nothing good!), we did take the time to look at...

Disney's New Streaming Service Won't Fuck

Disney+, Disney’s upcoming streaming service, will have almost everything: all of its animated movies, 10,000 Star Wars spinoff shows, most of the Marvel Universe (minus Spider-Man), possibly The Simpsons, and a Muppets short-form series. What it will not have: sex, big swears, my money.

Entertainment writer Eric Vespe attended Disney’s D23 Expo in Anaheim, California this weekend and asked...

Little Kid's Hand-Written Xbox Fan Mail From 2002 Is Very Wholesome

Little Kid's Hand-Written Xbox Fan Mail From 2002 Is Very Wholesome

Seamus Blackley, one of the key men involved in the creation of the original Xbox console, was going through some old stuff the other day when he came across an adorable piece of fan mail written 17 years ago by little Mitchell Riley. Realising he’d never replied, Blackley decided to track him down and make amends.

First though, the letter itself, which is infinitely more wholesome than any of...

Please don't you ask me if I love you, Oppo

Please don't you ask me if I love you, Oppo

One of my great disappointments was seeing the Dolls after they got old.  And after Thunders and Kane were dead.  Sylvain poured his heart into it, but I think Johansen was dreaming of Buster Poindexter.

Thanks for the vote of confidence that I won’t live to 65, mum!

In actuality, I’m going the bank to figure out savings and retirement again. Being 24, better to start now than later. I have a tax free savings account, so my plan is probably to go half and half on that and a registered retirement savings plan. But,...

Ask About a Hotel or Airbnb's WiFi Before You Book

Last Christmas I decided to splurge on an Airbnb for a few days in my hometown rather than stay with friends and family for my entire trip. I loved the idea of being able to come and go as I wanted, as well as stay up as late as I wanted without bugging my hosts. As it turns out, my midnight west coast bedtime turns into a 3am bedtime sometimes on the east coast. This way I could watch...

Autumn Air

Autumn Air

It’s sunny with a cool breeze today. No heartfelt goodbyes to summer from here. To hell with the heat.

There’s been a few mentions lately that Oppo has been slow. It’s true, but don’t forget Summer is a slow season with people doing outdoorsy stuff and vacations.

I can almost smell the whisky in the autumn breeze.

DC's Newest Take on the Joker is a Bit Off

DC's Newest Take on the Joker is a Bit Off

The Clown Prince of… what?

The upcoming graphic novel Harley-Quinn: Breaking Glass is a new take on Harley , so it makes sense that it would feature, in some form or fashion, the Joker . It also makes sense that it might be a different take on the character. But, scrolling through Twitter, the take I expected to see was not this one:

Well. Hm. That is not the Joker I was expecting. With his...
