gizmophile

compounding; noun
one who loves and is enthusiastic about technology and gadgets
 
The term was most likely coined to give the writer a more expressive and simpler way to define people who love technology. He must have gotten the idea from words such as audiophile 'one who loves high-fidelity audio recordings', which also use -phile as a suffix.
Etymology : gizmo 'gadget', unknown origin, originally U.S. Navy and Marine Corps slang + -phile 'love', via French and Latin from Greek -philos 'to love'
