Gizmodo Editor in Chief. I eat more cheese than is probably healthy.

​The Horrible No Good Apple Pay War No One Signed Up For — Earlier this week, we walked you through the stridently awful Apple Pay alternative being cooked up by Walmart, CVS, Best Buy, and more. It is dumb and bad, but as a recent New York Times report indicates, it's also not going anywhere any time soon. But not because anyone actually wants it.

New Avengers: Age of Ultron Trailer: You're Not Worthy — The first Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer showed more than our share of ass-kicking (and getting asses kicked). But this second look at next year's best movie settles a quieter score: Who can lift Thor's hammer?

Welcome to Toyland — We love toys around here. We love writing about them, playing with them, shooting each other in the face with them. But while we try to find any excuse we can to share them with you, there are some toys that just aren't quite tech enough to fit on Gizmodo.

No One's Buying iPads Because iPads Are Forever — Today, Apple trotted out its quarterly earnings, as public companies will do. Massive revenue! iPhone sales up! Mac sales up! iPad sales... well. Okay, so not everything was a hit. But don't confuse Apple's declining tablet sales with the vanishing of the iPad. Tablets aren't dying; they just live forever.

Kindle Voyage Review: The Best E-Reader Lots of Money Can Buy — For the last week, I've been reading off of a Kindle e-reader that somehow costs twice as much as a brand new Kindle Fire HD tablet. What a world! And while I still don't know if the Kindle Voyage is worth $200 (or $290 for the 3G model) I do know that it's the best e-reader ever built.

The iPad Mini 3 Is a Terrible Deal and You Shouldn't Buy It — The iPad mini 3 is a pretty good small tablet. I know this because it is almost the exact same device as last year's retina iPad mini, a device that I reviewed and enjoyed. If you're going to buy an iPad mini, buy that one. It costs $100 less.

The Most Important Nexus 6 Feature Is the Price — The Nexus line has distinguished itself for two ways since its 2010 debut. First, it's a vessel for the purest expression of what Android's capabilities. As a very close second, it's dirt cheap. One of those things is still true.

Exclusive: Fitbit Charge and Charge HR Images and Full Features List — After earlier reports that Fitbit may be working on two new activity trackers, a tipster has sent us what appear to be marketing material that gives a clear shot of both the Charge and Charge HD. It's the first look at the feature rundown for both, and the cleanest look yet at the devices themselves.

Our New iPad, iMac, and More Liveblog Starts 10/16 at 12PM ET/9AM PT — Hello there! Next Thursday, Apple's expected to announce brand new iPad Airs, possibly a retina iMac, and maybe even a long-overdue Apple TV refresh. And we'll be covering it all for you as it unfolds, live from the scene.

Deus Ex Oculus: Coder Builds a Real-Time VR World Around Himself — On the left, rows of small green squares. On the right, the code that brought them into being. Not pictured? The guy wearing the Oculus Rift headset, who's making it all happen in real-time. Forget The Matrix. This is low-level deity stuff.
