Microsoft just snatched defeat from the jaws of victory, and is delaying its Spring Creator’s Update (codenamed Redstone 4) due to a bug that resulted in an increase in Blue Screen of Death crashes. Luckily, the issue was spotted in an Insider build of Windows 10, specifically build 17133, meant for developers and not…
Our friends over at the Takeout discovered last week that Walmart’s website sold Earthworm jerky. As Gizmodo’s resident bug eater, I ordered some the moment I heard. This jerky tasted horrible, to my surprise. But please, don’t let that stop you from trying to eat strange invertebrates yourself.
While many bugs are relatively benign, often getting patched before the user knows anything is wrong, the latest plague to hit Apple devices is already wreaking havoc on internet.
The seemingly endless string of iOS bugs is a sickness that just won’t go away. Just a month ago, people discovered that a strange hyperlink could cause Messages to crash. And while that issue has been patched, a new bug has appeared that can wreck Messages, along with a number of other major apps.
There are only so many ways to say “I love you,” and sometimes tried-and-true expressions of affection just won’t cut it. On this Valentine’s Day, you can really spice things up by sending your partner this video of wriggling maggots eating a heart-shaped donut.
For the third time in recent months, big problems have been discovered with macOS High Sierra.
Ever since it launched in September, iOS 11 has been riddled with glitches, bad UI decisions and general lack of attention to detail.

Early today, NBC 4 in Washington published several dozen pages of White House work orders it had obtained. Within the long, mundane requests (“please turn temperature up 1.5 degrees higher”) and repairs one expects with a building over 200 years old were orders which suggest there are several types of…
If the sound of a single mosquito buzzing near your ear is enough to send you running, you might want to skip this video of a Louisiana exterminator battling what is easily the largest hornet’s nest I’ve ever seen in my life, hiding inside someone’s backyard shed.
Killer mosquitoes are coming—mosquitoes that help kill other mosquitoes, that is.
Bed bugs are bed bad. People’s entire lives have been overturned by these (increasingly common) blood-sucking, itch-inducing pests. Thankfully, they’re not disease vectors, but I would rather not share my home with a roommate who wants to eat me, thank you very much.
I was just trying to sleep.
Plenty of people have described Hurricane Harvey as a disaster of biblical proportions, and it seems the next plague is upon us. It’s not locusts. Thanks to untold quantities of filthy standing water, millions of mosquitos are starting to hatch. And yes, they do bite. They love to bite.
A single seared shrimp sat atop a scoop of mashed avocado with a healthy pile of salty black specks overflowing onto the plate beside it. If I didn’t already know what I had gotten myself into, I would have been certain the topping was caviar—each spot popped just like a sturgeon egg might have. But rather than…
Is Barnaby Dixon the reincarnation of Jim Henson? It’s hard to believe that there isn’t at least a little bit of Henson inside the young puppeteer as he demonstrates his latest creation, a glowing bug puppet that’s so articulated it even has moving fingers that can grasp tiny objects.
When taking high-resolution 3D scans of insects, scientists typically have to kill their test subjects, which isn’t always ideal. By taking advantage of an insect’s ability to survive oxygen-poor conditions, scientists have now used carbon dioxide to keep bugs in a state of suspended animation for upwards of seven…

Do you have hobbies? Maybe cycling or carpentry or something low key? Well, this guy has a cooler hobby than you.
