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.
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.
