Don't miss Joel Johnson's Gizmodo gadget show tonight on BBCA

Here's a reminder that former Boing Boing gadget guv'nor Joel Johnson will have his own TV pilot, Gizmodo: The Gadget Testers, tonight at 10:20/9:20c on BBC America, right after the season finale of Top Gear. He'll be joined by Veronica Belmont, Greg Foot and O.J. Borg, Joe Brown and Chris Hardwick, and they will all play with their gadgets.


    1. What you don’t see is that he’s actually about to beat Chris Hardwick to death with the Dyson. Then the survivors chase down that bloke off in the distance and make him see how many newtons of force it takes to knock over Mighty Mugs.

  1. I love how BBCAmerica is filling in their schedule – Nerdist, Giz – Don’t we want a bb show next?

  2. They wept like anything to see
    Such quantities of sand:
    “If this were only cleared away,”
    They said, “it would be grand!”
    “If seven maids with seven mops
    Swept it for half a year.
    Do you suppose,” the Walrus said,
    “That they could get it clear?”

    …however if they had a Dyson™

  3. If it’s a Giz show then the commercials need to be something along the lines of “That’s right Steve, I didn’t know my friend Tom’s ex-wife could make up to $1,456 a week from home!” and the credits should just be a commenting flamewar that goes full Godwin about 1.5 seconds in to the scroll.

  4. As a long time reader of gizmodo, i really really miss the old days of quality content, editors, and fact checkers.  I remember when they did gadget testing and wrote new unique articles that weren’t just loosely edited reddit or boing boing reposts.

    That was their golden days before it all became clickbait. *sighs wistfully*

    boing boing, lifehacker, and gizmodo used to be my 3 daily gotos. Thank gawd that boing boing has kept the quality high and not gone the route of those others.  thank you boing boing!  keep on rocking.
