A new place to laugh along with us on Twitch streams; a new place to commiserate when all the games are broken; a new place to celebrate when an unexpected jewel shines through the din o...

The votes have been tallied; the judges deliberated; and we have our winners for this year's Insert Coin. The judges tossed their support behind Poursteady, a robot that makes five pour-over cups of coffee and handed the company $10,000 to help get off the ground. Noke took home the $15,000 reader...

Ben and Terrence are back in good ol' NYC and they've got the one and only Edgar Alvarez in the studio with them! Obviously, the big news this week is that Apple snatched up Beats, which means we're probably only a few days away from watching an awkward exchange between Tim Cook and Dr. Dre live o...

My word what a week -- but it's almost over. Friday is here, which means it's time for Ben and Terrence to excavate this weeks biggest and most interesting stories from the smoldering pile of rubble called the internet.

Ten years ago today (in fact, exactly 10 years ago, if you're reading this post in real time), Engadget was born. Our first post featured T-Flash, a new memory card format created to serve cellphone users who wanted extra storage -- as long as they were willing to cap their needs at 128MB.

This week Ben and Terrence are exploring the brave new old world of audio-only podcasting, starting as close to 12PM ET as humanly possible. (You know, sometimes life just kinda gets in the way.)
