Engadget is Down - Popular Blogger and News Site is Currently Offline


Staff member
Has Engadget been hacked? The popular tech blogging site appears to be offline at approximately 3:52PM EST on January 14th, 2013.

As of the moment, the home page engadget.com seems to be redirecting to "engadget.com/topics/mobile/topics/mobile/topics/mobile/topics/mobile/topics/mobile/topics/mobile/topics/mobile/topics/mobile/topics/mobile/topics/mobile/topics/mobile/topics/mobile/topics/mobile/topics/mobile/topics/mobile/topics/mobile/topics/mobile/topics/mobile/topics/mobile/topics/mobile/" which may prove to be more of a coding error than an attempted hack attempt.

A few twitter accounts have noted the same issue, in fact @redbullcat states, hmm. I just get topics/mobile/topics/mobile/topics/mobile/topics/mobile/topics/mobile/topics/mobile/ repeating.

Although the web version of Engadgets website is down, I am able to browse their site using my mobile browser on my iPhone 4.

Stay tuned as details emerge, we'll be updating this blog as information becomes available.
