From the "Is It Just Me?" Department

Engadget is a pretty good site if you like to read the latest snippets on gadgetry; it wins all the awards and gets all the press. My gripe with it is this:

It takes FOR EVER to load! I mean, F O R E V E R !

It's not just a "don't tell me you're still on dialup" thing either. Gizmodo has about the same content on each page and loads in a tenth of the time. What's worse -- there's nothing to look at while it's loading. No placeholders for the images so you can at least be teased by the text, nothing but grayness for what seems like an eternity.

And thirteen meg podcasts that talk aimlessly about next to nothing? C'mon guys. Tighten it up a little...
