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

Walmart's Chromecast Knockoff Looks Like How They Stream in Hell — I suspect the Germans have a word for taking something great and then stripping it of everything remotely joyful until it's a cold hollow shell not fit for existence. Unless this FCC filing is totally off base, now I do too! Well, two words, I guess: Vudu Spark.

I Just Bought My First CD Since 2006 and You Should Too — Hello. I'm a 33-year old father of two, and I just bought a Taylor Swift CD on Amazon. Let me explain the CD part. I realize that for many of you the act of buying an album-instead of streaming subscriptions or torrents-is borderline unfathomable. Much less an album in compact disc form.

John Oliver Knows Exactly What Horrors Robot Store Clerks Will Lead To — Now that Lowe's is using robots to guide its customers to the plumbing aisle, it may have lost its most important failsafe: Human beings who can stop other human beings from tearing each other apart when they're shopping for drill bits. I'll watch pretty much anything with Nick Offerman and H.

​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.

@RSorokanich I’m usually good until the person in front tries to recline and then everything just collapses in a horrible puddle.
