About Us

Gizmodo loves technology. A lot.

We’re obsessed with the gadgets, science and geek culture that change the way we live, work, love, eat, play, think and feel.

Gizmodo Australia covers local technology news with a team of award-winning local journalists, and localises the best posts from the US, making sure to eliminate what’s irrelevant for Aussies. If you do want to access the US site, you can go to us.gizmodo.com.

Our coverage is sorted into eleven main categories – News, Mobile, Gadgets, Online, Computing, Cameras, Science, Entertainment, Geek Out, Software, and Cars.

All stories are tagged so they’re easy to browse and locate.
