You missed that boat, and found that you'd been left behind

The Gawker blog/"new media" empire has expanded again, with software-themed Lifehacker. I think I'd feel more confident in its content if it weren't sponsored by Sony, plugging their amazing new "Look, it'll play regular old MP3s now too, see? Not just our proprietary and buggy-as-hell ATRAC files?" Network Walkman. Being backed by a company desperately promoting a product now two to three years behind the times, in a market they used to near-completely own, isn't exactly a harbinger of anything good.
