New data-geeky gadget site gdgt (pronounced either G-D-G-T or just "gadget") doesn't deliver giant pictures with the latest news on brand-new devices. It tracks what gadgets you had, have and want, and filters tips, gripes and discussions around them.
After signing up, you'll want to dig around the gadget finder or text search for the computers, digital cameras, gaming systems, mobile phones, and other devices that you own. Hit "Add to list" below the main gadget pic, say whether you had, have, or want it, then read on to find general discussions, tips and hacks for using it, and see price comparisons if you're looking to buy or sell.
You might end up with a profile stuffed with gadgets, depending on how far you go in registering your gear. Don't see your gadget listed? Add it yourself and submit for review. There are, of course, plenty of social opportunities for sharing, embedding, discussing, and otherwise geeking out about the stuff you love (or secretly hate). Veronica Belmont details signing up and using the site in the video below:
The site was founded by Ryan Block and Peter Rojas, alumni of gadget sites Gizmodo and Engadget, and they claim that many more features are on their way. Though it launched yesterday, gdgt spent most of the daylight hours struggling under a traffic crunch, but looks to be moving smoothly this morning. Tracking gadgets and contributing requires a free account sign-up.
