Gizmodo’s New Layout — Thumbs Way Down

Dear Gizmodo’s new layout,

After so many wasted hours enjoying Gizmodo, and the parent Gawker media site, I fear today is the day I say goodbye.  Their new layout is just unbearable, to the point I refuse to even visit the site anymore.  The Gizmodo homepage smacks you with a half page video ad to the face, and forces me a “hot” topic I could not care less about.  Beside’s the bugs that will surely be fixed (page not loading, crashing browser, et cetera) the design just leaves the viewer….lost.  Well I wish them the best, but I can’t stick around for them to make it right again.  Judging from the Gizmodo commenters the new layout is not to their liking either.

I don’t know enough expletives to adequately describe how shitty this redesign is.”

Says one commenter.  Agreed, says me.   Update: Here is how to get the Old gizmodo gawker site layout back
