The owners of TechCrunch have now formally announced that they will own the technology review site gdgt.com. Although financial terms have no been decided, gdgt  co-founders Peter Rojas and Ryan Block said that they chose AOL because they felt it was the best fit.

According to TechCrunch, Ryan Block will soon become head of product for AOL Tech Media as part of the deal, reporting to Jay Kirsch. They say that the move will give AOL another important way to increase traffic to existing news sites and also increase traffic at gdgt.
