It's a website... about technology! 
It's a website... about technology! 
Hey, quick post here to celebrate today's preview launch of tested.com. Will and Norm have been holed up in an office upstairs fending off entry-level technology questions from Ryan and I for quite some time now, and I'm sure they're excited to finally be able to say "go read the site" to us instead of having to actually tell Ryan about cell phones or me about the future of teledildonics.

Site's looking great so far and they're just getting started. They'll eventually have a lot of the user-editable databasey-type stuff that makes Giant Bomb go. So head over to tested.com, sign up for an account, and ask them about the future of teledildonics for me.

Actually... don't do that last part. They'd probably just ban you and then come downstairs to kick me in the stomach.

Unfortunately, nobody can be shown the Teledildonics; you have to see it for yourself.
 
Looking forward to the iTunes link actually working. BTW.

God dam you Jeff Gertsmann, GOD DAM YOU TO HELL! The last thing i need is ANOTHER  dam website to keep checking out to see whats new on it! Thanks! No really thanks a lot! Gesh.
 
I'm already hooked on the site after watching this one video. Why you may ask? Because it has VINNY!
edit: Ok maybe not. It embedded an old e3 video from giantbomb instead of the sites video.

I'm kind of astonished the domain name "tested.com" hasn't been taken long, long before now.

A site that bans you for the mention of  teledildonics is NOT a site that deserves my visit.

I thought I didn't get my email notification, but it was actually sent to my spam folder. If your using Gmail that's probably the reason.

Ha!  I was wondering why there was no "Tech site" option in the "What other kind of website would you like to see Whiskey media produce?" on the survey they put out.  Awesome!

Nice :)
Just one small legal note for you guys.
In most places now - UK, NZ, I thought US as well - Tick boxes to sign to mailing lists and things...
 
Your not allowed to have them pre-ticked, legal stuff  (I am in the web industry and when we make stuff these things are not ticked), you have to "opt in" not "opt out" 
 
Just for reference on the team. So an international site, best to have these unticked.

Being in a Preview state, I'll excuse the site from lacking much of the polish that makes Giant Bomb pleasing.

No honey, tested.com is not about testing for STDs over the internet.
