Gadgettes 188: The Mega-Segment Farewell Episode (podcast)

I hope you are sitting, and not standing, for this is in fact the final episode of Gadgettes. Yes, it sucks. But the show will always live on in the archives. Before you start re-listening to every single past episode, enjoy our final sendoff where we (appropriately) cover nearly all of the segments from the show.

Dearest Gadgettes,

This may be A PROPOS (of) NOTHING, or maybe it's a NERD ALERT... but WHAT THE HELL? Now how will I ASK A GADGETTE? I need someone to tell me when it's TOOL TIME or POTTY TIME because I just don't know on my own when IT'S ABOUT TIME. Please don't UNFRIEND me for saying so but it seems like a GENDER GAP is happening here when it comes to the end of Gadgettes. It's not PRETTY. It's FUG. You can't even dress this news up with some BLING RX to make it work. How will I find my HOT ASIAN GADGET fixes and my HELLO KITTY WATCH alerts? THERE'S AN APP FOR THAT?! WHAT A CONCEPT. WHY DIDN'T I THINK OF THAT?

KILL ME.

Yours always,
Holly in NYC (hollyhock)

P.S. Seriously though... This sucks. I understand why but I don't have to like it. :(


I can't believe that Gadgettes is coming to an end. It has been an essential part of every week for me and the only show that makes me laugh for an hour straight. You have been the most totally awesome show in the history of human-kind EVER (that is not an overstatement). Your pure awesomeness has been the most awesomely awesome of all awesome. I really wish the show wasn't ending. I really wish the show wasn't ending. But I understand.

But can't you just go till episode 200 or something? Or make the show bi-weekly?? Or just DON'T END!!!!!!!!!!!

Thank you Molly, Kelly, Lindsey, and Jason for all your awesomeness. Cushy Tushy for life!

Farewell Gadgettes!

Just saw Molly's post on Facebook about Gadgettes demise and I want to scream. Not that Facebook sucks personal security donkeyballs but that Gadgettes will not be around anymore. Full disclosure - in 45 years of enjoying pop culture, IT geekiness, music, movies, etc. this is my first ever fan letter. I cannot express enough how much I enjoyed your show. You all deserve to be very proud of what you did each week.

Since this is my first fan letter ever I am not sure how to do it properly (AHHH JUSTIN BIEBER) but I will try. When I try and examine what it is I liked (arrgh I hate using the past tense when describing you guys) what it is I liked about your show so much, I can sum it up in one word - PUCKERED.

A little while ago you were talking about a toilet seat that was leather and I think Jason used the word puckered to describe how difficult it would be to clean leather. Molly began with a laugh that was the type where you have trouble catching your breath. The rest of you guys started laughing along and that was it. I think there was a point where there was about 60 seconds of silence due to you trying to control your laughter. I often listen to your podcast on my bus commute to my IT job along with the other mindless drones who have had the life sucked out of them. And here I am, holding my side laughing out loud in front of them. That is what made your show the best podcast around - your humour and fun was genuine and infectious.

I am very sad yet at the same time so very grateful that I got a chance to listen to your show.

Subject: What is Gadgettes?
Hi Molly,

I've been a cnet reader for over a decade but unfortunately never knew what this is about until you said it's cancelled. So I guess I won't be missing much. HOWEVER I'm still super mad about Mailbag. I say it again: HOW COULD YOU?? Noooooooooo!!!!! Why????????? Ok. I'm done acting like the Italian world cup team (i.e. acting overly dramatic).

Cheers,
Conti
