Dear Engadget

Today I read your post about some new Z-Wave dongle. The first occurrence of the word Z-Wave was a link, which I immediately clicked, because I had no idea what Z-Wave was.

Was I immediately whisked away to this Wikipedia page, which describes the technology? Nope. Perhaps I was directed to the official site of the Z-Wave alliance? Again, no.

Indeed, this link transports me to that bastion of all net-knowledge, the “Engadget Search Results for z-wave” page. Uhh… what?

This is apparently standard operating procedure at Engadget. I’m too lazy to bitch-blog about something until it happens 5 or 10 times.

Anyway, I’m willing to accept the possibility that there is a good reason for this behavior, but from the outside it looks lame and it makes me hate you.

Please cut it out.

    Engadget does that shit to boost their google rankings. I think its a pain in the ass myself.

    I thought it might be something like that. So lame.

    I’m ready to bitch after the first occurrence. Actually I think bitching is going to dominate my blog after a while.
