I am the new Editor in Chief of Engadget

On the phone with Arianna Huffington

I just got off the phone with Arianna Huffington. She likes what I do and has asked me to be the new Editor in Chief at Engadget.com effective immediately.

I told her I will do it under one condition, that they agree to rename Engadget.com to ARMdevices.net, all visitors going to the previous Engadget.com will be automatically redirected to the more future-proof ARMdevices.net brand instead.

Under my command, the site will only feature Benchmarks and Funny Videos. I believe that snarky news items are a waste of time. Any Engadget editor who owns an iPhone, who knows someone who owns an iPhone or who has been in an Apple Store during the previous 6 months will be fired.

100% of the posts will be ARM related, 10% of which will be Archos and ARM related, as I believe Archos is the best company in the world. Any negativity towards Google will not be tolerated, let them close Honeycomb and ban emulators if they want!

If anyone has a problem with this, you can send me an email.

Here I'm being interviewed with Arianna Huffington at the announcement event this morning here in Davos:

    Let the Charbax era begin!

  • Is this somehow related to the April 1st thing πŸ™‚

  • What about PixelQi? I assume there will be at least four posts a day dedicated to the screen technology. Can you confirm?

  • Yes, Pixel Qi will be mentioned as the better alternative any time any device with a screen is featured.

  • I approve.

  • Jotatsu

    I live in a catholic country, here the april fool is in another date. I always fall for the pranks -.-

  • Anonymous

    You nearly had me there. But I think it would be awesome anyway!

  • What’s the use for Engadget anyway, since discovering ARMDevices the reason to go there has almost gone πŸ˜‰

  • Talas

    Charbax Nice April Fools ;)}

  • You deserve it… although I don’t think they would be able to handle you.
