I've taken a quick look around the site and it looks like a more hippy-trippy version of The Verge. Haven't we hit the saturation point on these tech-pop-culture website wrapped in a minimalistic yet decorative responsive web design?

The Verge has sucked massively since Topolsky left. Or since it was bought by Vox.

I'm curious as to why Gruber has such resentment towards him, though.

>The Verge has sucked massively since Topolsky left.

That sentence is three words too long.

I don't believe The Verge was ever bought by Vox. It was funded by the Vox's parents company and others from the very beginning.

I do find it pretty ironic at one point Topolsky was considered to be an Apple fanboy who ruined Engadget.

Gruber doesn't really hate Topolsky that much even though they don't see eye to eye on many issues. Gruber even showed up on Topolsky's podcast last year.

Grubs is so resentful of other people's success or new ventures. Just listen to the way he tries to minimize Gurman's scoops on his podcast.

Pathetic.

I'd exchange 10 Grubers for 1 Topolsky.

I'd exchange 10 Grubers for 9 Grubers.

Flying Fuck:
Topolsky gargles with goat cocks. He did it with Engadget, he did it with Verge, and he's going to do it again with this sad sack of monkey piss.

I thought the "hipster" news site trend was dead, but this fuck just won't go away.

once this new shitshow fails for topolsky, he and gruber can become friends and commiserate over their failed ventures - american mccarver, vesper, the outline, whatever other bullshit they've failed at.

American McCarver! I'd forgotten about that!

Gruber resents all his competition, but Topolsky holds a special place ever since he had Gruber as a guest on his Verge "talk show" video podcast. Gruber nervously wagged his foot while Topolsky asked him if he was a fanboy.

The Outline looks super sucky. Someone needs to publish a DeOutlined website that just has links and blurbs to the damn content, so you can just quickly see what's there.
