Joshua Topolsky

Joshua Topolsky heads "Engadget": as Editor-in-chief, overseeing the creative and editorial content for the tech news site — the flagship brand of the AOL's tech network. He also manages sister-sites Engadget Mobile and Engadget HD, and supervises the growing pool of Engadget foreign arms, including hubs for Spanish, Japanese, and Chinese. In all, the stable of properties sees millions of visitors a day, and is widely considered to be the definitive source for consumer electronics and gadget news.

As an authoritative voice on technology, Joshua has been featured in the New York Times, USA Today, The Globe and Mail, and Ad Age, and is the resident tech expert on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. He has also appeared on CNN, MSNBC, G4’s Attack of the Show, Tekzilla, and Fox & Friends. His work as a writer and editor on the site has yielded the highest sustained traffic in the history of Engadget.

A lifelong gadget geek, Joshua had his first computer at age 6 (a Texas Instruments TI-99/4A), and has been breaking apart (and piecing back together) technology since phones had rotary dialers. Before joining Engadget in 2007, he produced music with his brother Eric, and never woke up before noon.
