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

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.

Dropbox Delete Your Files? You Might Get a (One Year) Free Pro Upgrade — Bad news for some people who only live on the cloud: Dropbox has confirmed that a bug in some older version of its dekstop app has deleted user files from the cloud. Good news: Dropbox says that it's restoring files where it can and is updating the bug.

The iPhone 6 Is Somehow the Only Decent Non-Giant Phone Left in America — Today, Sony passed on an opportunity to bring its 4.6-inch Sony Z3 compact to the United States, at least for the foreseeable future. With it went any hope of finding a quality smartphone here that doesn't feel like stuffing butter dish in your pocket, outside of the iPhone 6.

Apple TV Gets One Step Closer to Becoming Your Smart Home Hub — Apple TV has long seemed like a natural fit as a hub for Apple's smart home ambitions, even before those ambitions were codified in HomeKit. Today, we finally have a good look at exactly how that's going to work in practice.

​Drink Boxed Wine — Any possible objection you have to boxed wine is wrong, and I am here to tell you why. It's better than you remember. Let's get this out the way first, because I'm assuming it'll address the largest objection for most of you. You've had wine out of a box before, and it was terrible.

iPhone 6 Review: The Phone That Lured Me Back to Apple — I'd rather get this out of the way up front: the iPhone 6 is the best smartphone you can buy. In fact, it's better than that. The iPhone 6 convinced me to switch back to Apple. It feels strange to say this, but the last time I owned an iPhone, it was a 3GS.

@laura_june Thing is pretty dangerous but have you been following this enterovirus d68 stuff pretty scary IMO

@bupereira @Jammyjamwood @Gizmodo Or I can respect that you have a brain and will disagree if you want to instead of pretending I’m a robot.

Oct 16, 2014

@mattbuchanan @joeljohnson Yeah it’s good it just makes way more sense for Apple to push people to the phone so they are neutering it.

Oct 16, 2014

@joeljohnson @Afterschool iPad mini 3 is literally the iPad mini 2 because Apple wants people to buy an iPhone 6 Plus instead.

Oct 16, 2014

@Afterschool Yeah same market as iPod touch, which is why it might stick around but iPod does not? Either way it is basically dead.

Oct 16, 2014

I really don’t think there’s going to be an iPad mini 4, or if there is it’ll be relegated to off-stage iPod touch land.

Oct 16, 2014

I also wouldn’t hype the iPad mini if I were trying to kill it with the iPhone 6 Plus.
