Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to Vox.com, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.
The DailyCandy era is ending with the site's full shutdown (meaning no archives!) planned for next week. Comcast media bought the site, which began as a daily newsletter for local recommendations, in 2008—for a cool $125 million. We'll for sure miss our friends at the SF branch of the publication. It goes to show the internet is still very much "here today, gone tomorrow." [Racked]
