We love gadgets and the technologies that make the gadgets go.

We are geeks to the core, but we also talk about electronics in a way that everyone can relate to. We take everything into consideration from design, to user interface to practicality, pricing and competition.We make lists to help you decide what gadgets you need (or don’t). And we deliver live coverage at conferences like CES (Las vegas, USA), IFA (Berlin), Mobile World Congress (Barcelona, Spain), CEATEC (Tokyo, Japan), Google I/O (Silicon Valley, USA) CTIA, DEMO, GDC, and  more so our readers can feel like they are there with us. If it’s cool, we are covering it.

And our hard work is paying off: we are a Webby Award Honoree, have been nominees at the Bloggies and voted in the top 100 blogs for PC Magazine and the Hot Site on USA Today. But most importantly, we are reaching out to electronics lovers around the world. Launched in Silicon Valley in 2005, Ubergizmo is distributed in 6 languages and read in over 200 countries.
