By on

The Editor in chief of Engadget, owned by AOL, Ryan Block will step down from the top spot and will be launching a brand new site; with TechCrunch speculating that it may be called Devixe.

Taking over the ranks will be Josh Fruhlinger and Joshua Topolsky, with Fruhlinger taking over the entire AOL Tech Network, which includes TUAW, Switched, Download Squad and all of Engadget’s spinoffs. Topolsky will become the next editor in chief.

However, he says that he will not leave Engadget permanently, he will have a long-term advisory role at the blog.
