He did? Then it’s official official. Deadspin is over.
Blackberry was first to the smartphone market, and Steve Jobs came along and “Porsched” up the design. Faster, sleeker, better made. First to market is a very temporary advantage. Generally second and third to market take the lead, then pretend they’re first to market.
I hate to takeover another post but Drew just quit Deadspin as well as much of the other staff. That site made a bunch of money and I hope nothing negative comes to effect Jalopnik too.
The elephant in the room has always been that someone could emulate Tesla if they had the political will. Tesla benefited from first-to-market status while most other automakers took another 10 years to even get semi-serious about EVs (save for maybe Toyota because they needed to maintain the brand image that Prius… Read more
Jim Spanfeller looks like a guy who gives his niece lingerie for her birthday.
There is way too much sports talk diluting this website’s content. Please stick to dogs.
Can you guys just start your own website, like Jaloopnik or something? I’m starting to feel dirty every time I click on a story, putting another penny in Spanfeller’s pocket.

I’m saddened by the imminent firing of the great Ray Ratto.
Seriously. That and that humblebrag ass thrift store one. Jesus. “So the fry cook and I saunter over to the 1950's garage and the gentleman confesses to the murder. Quite an odd morning I suppose, but what a great haul!”
The scariest thing about the ouija board story is that a Chick Tract gained enough sentience to write it!
Does anyone want to start building a canon of the all-time greats we’ve had on here, over the years?
I feel like the crawling civil war ghost would go on there for me, from this year. Just a deeply upsetting mental image. Read more

I made my dog come inside to keep me company/for protection and since she’s currently enjoying a power nap by the heating vent I think we’re fine but boy that one gave me the heebie jeebies. I love scary story season on Jezebel!
