    Launched in March 2004, Engadget is updated multiple times a day with articles on gadgets and consumer electronics. It also posts rumors about the technological world, frequently offers opinion within its stories, and produces the weekly Engadget podcast that covers tech and gadget news stories that happened during the week.

    Overnight on July 15, 2013, Tim Stevens stepped down as the editor-in-chief, placing gdgt‘s Marc Perton as the interim executive editor. In November 2013, a major redesign was launched that merged gdgt‘s features into Engadget, such as database of devices and aggregated reviews. The changes aimed to turn Engadget into a more extensive consumer electronics resource, similarly to CNET and Consumer reports, aimed towards “the early adopter in all of us”.

    As of April 2014, Michael Gorman was the editor-in-chief, alongside Christopher Trout as executive editor.

    On December 2, 2015, Engadget introduced another redesign, as well as a new editorial direction with a focus on broader topics influenced by technology; Gorman explained that “the core Engadget audience—people who are very much involved in the industry—pay attention to it very closely, but the new editorial direction is really meant to try to make it approachable for folks outside of that realm.”
