This is just sad. Engadget lost its soul.
I didn't like him anyway...
I always enjoyed reading Josh's posts, it is unfortunate that he is now leaving what I think is a great site and I hope it continues to run well without him.
Watch him go to GDGT.
shame to see him go. he is one of the better tech writers out there in my opinion. makes me wonder what engadget will be like without him.
I like Josh. Good luck to him.
Agreed. I liked him as well.
That's a shame. I really like him. Hopefully he won't disappear completely from tech news blogging.
It seems like it is his own decision.
Makes you wonder if this is related to the AOL/HuffPo deal..
He didn't mention the AOL way, but I think it had to do sth with his decision. Actually the whole Engadget team that made the podcasts and the Engadget show is gone. Nilay Patel, Ron Miller, Paul Miller and now Joshua Topolsky.
Hopefully someone will be able to fill his shoes. Engadget is my #2 site next to MR.
Maybe he'll get a permanent segment on Jimmy Fallon's show.
Watching the Engadget Show and when he's on Jimmy Fallon, he does seem to do well in front of the camera.
So disappointing. First Paul Miller and now Josh and Nilay. As a fan of Apple it was nice to have a guy who unabashedly appreciated their products and wasn't afraid to rate them above other competitors. (Despite the raging lunacy in the comments against anything Apple)
So Gizmodo blows and now Engadget is being 'AOLized' with the talent jumping ship. I will always have this site for Apple-related news but man what is out there for general tech news that is fun AND full of decent journalism?
Josh was the face of Engadget. It's sad to see him go. That being said, Engadget's writing quality has been steadily declining over the past few months, so they have to turn things around.
I wonder if Leo Laporte hired him at TWiT. On one of the shows the other day, he said they had a new employee coming in, but didn't say who it was.
I enjoyed reading Josh's posts and reviews. He definitely was the face of Engadget. I was really surprised when I read that he was leaving.
I wonder how long it will be before he reveals where he is working next.
That would be awesome! I love Leo and the TWiT podcasts.
He said that he will still host the engadget show.
Hmmm... I remember Leo saying he wanted a New York studio for a morning show on TWiT.
Engadget is based out of NYC if I'm not mistaken.
Improbable, but it would be cool.
Well Leo and Josh are obviously fans of Apple so it would make sense.
Yeah, he was a little too hipster for me. Hat, thick black rim glasses, beard and scarf. In the words of Mitch Hedberg, '[He's] got a lot of cranium accessories...'
After watching TWiT yesterday, I doubt it. Leo said he was surprised by it when they discussed it. I figure if he were coming to the TWiT network, he wouldn't have brought it up. Besides, Iyaz from This Old Nerd announced he is moving to TWiT.tv.
I remember when Ryan Block left Engadget and people were saying similar things, wondering about Engadget's future. Josh eventually grew into the role and now he's leaving. While it's sad to see him go, I'm sure someone else will eventually fill the spotlight.
From what i've heard AOL's policies led to the reason for leaving. AHuffington tried to convince him to stay, but no dice.
