Gizmodo, along with Engadget, is one of the top tech sites on the planet. Last week one of their former editors, Joel Johnson, returned to the site with a blisteringly funny and to-the-point editorial
I gave up two years of my life writing about gadgets for this site. Waking up every morning at 5 AM, chewing up press releases to find the rare morsel of legitimate information, chasing down “hot tips” that ended up being photochops of iPods with reflections of genitals in the touchscreens. Oh, and the worst: fielding emails from PR parasites eager to suck away precious time in a half-hour phone meeting while the Senior Vice-President of Smoke Blowing tells me about how his company's software—based on an idea cribbed from Google-is going to change the way I look at something I didn't care about in the first place. (Inevitably, “forever.”)
Wonderful stuff. The comments aren't bad either:
I heard the sound of dozens of sphincter's tightening all the way in Canada.
