    There's a site that went downhill fast. I cant stand their Twitter like posts and their lack of exclusive material. After the redesign it sealed my decision to stop going there regularly and every time I do I remember why I stopped going in the first place.

    Nope. Deleted from my bookmarks as well.

    The redesign sealed it for me as well.

    That's the only way I read Gizmodo. Otherwise I just don't go on it at all.
    I like engadget more though.

    Its not even the design that is the worst part, sadly.

    I stopped going ever since the iPhone 4 prototype debacle......

    BTW, what is the latest in that development? Are the cops still investigating?

    I still visit Lifehacker, Jalopnik and Gizmodo. Only occasionally though.

    I use Engadget more now, I hate the redesign. I still use Kotaku.

    The redesign makes the site virtually unusable. I avoid it at all costs now.

    Gizmodo has gone downhill since the redesign, shorter "articles", annoying web design, etc

    I don't know WTF they are doing reporting on the Japan news, I mean, if I want to read about Japan, I'll go to CNN or watch the Nightly News, not read about it on a "gadget" blog...

    They seriously need to stop with the Japan news, they are reporting on the news just because Apple has the option to donate on iTunes, it's like they are doing everything possible to get Apple's attention, which is utterly pathetic...

    I instead read macrumors, engadget, cultofmac, and macworld

    Anyone else see their iPhone stuck in "m.gizmodo.com"? Seems like no way out to the main site.

    Nope.

    Speaking of applebitch, I find it humorous whenever they are cited in earnest for a serious rumor.

    Their redesign is horrible. For example comments are no longer threaded, articles are hard to read. Works better with Pulse or feed reader.

    They just added "blog" view again though.

    They lost their credibility for me during the whole iPhone 4 thing. I try to stay away from Gawker in general but find myself on Lifehacker sometimes.

    I use to really enjoy Giz, I would visit the site very often, much more then I would visit engadget. Now I find myself using engadget more.
