Age: 42

General Info about you:
I’m married with three children, boys, ages 9,12 and 13. I’ve been writing and reviewing products for several years now. At last count I’ve reviewed well over one thousand products, games and software, everything from washing machines to HDTVs. I do this because I love it, I like being on the cutting edge of technology, I love getting and testing all sorts of products, putting them through their paces, and letting people know about them, good or bad. I write for Technogog, and on occasion for MobilityDigest.com as well, so I keep very busy with work and family. I’ve been into computers most of my life, my first computer was a Commodore Vic-20 many years ago and from there it sort of became an obsession with all things tech.

System or systems you use:
My main system consists of an Intel Core i7 2600K with HIS Radeon 7870  and HIS Radeon 7750 video cards and about 7TB of storage on board with four LCD monitors. I’ve got several other AMD and Intel based systems in my house including my laptop, and I own a few Android Tablets as well. I also have an Xbox360 and a Wii, along with a Playstation2 and Playstation3 hooked up to my Vizio 120HZ 47″ LCD HDTV.

Favorite gadgets:
I’ve got a ZuneHD and an HTC One M7 Android phone that goes everywhere with me.

Hobbies:
I don’t have time for hobbies, but when I get any free time it’s usually watching a movie or catching up on TV and playing games or continuing to remodel my home.

Name: Tom Ratas
Age: 39

General Info about you:
I have been fascinated computers and technology since junior high school where I spent many hours learning BASIC on my Atari 800 computer. In the early nineties I started building PCs and have never looked back. I especially enjoy hacking devices such as Tivos, iPhones, AppleTVs, Linskys Routers, etc. To me that is the best way to understand how these devices work. In fact my rudimentary understanding of Linux came from dabbling with my hacked Tivos.

I am currently married with two daughters and live in a house with too many PCs and Macs according to family members. They just don’t understand! :)

System or systems you use:
My main PC is a self built Intel i7 920 machine, but I also have four Macs which get plenty of use. I prefer Macs for most activities but the PC is definitely superior in some aspects. I also own all three next gen consoles with my favorite being the XBox 360.

Favorite gadgets:
My favorite current device is the iPhone 3G as it gets used constantly. My MacBook Pro is always nearby too. Although now I will be using my Dell Mini 9 OS X Hackbook more often.

Hobbies:
When I am not reviewing tech goodies, I like going to the gym, playing Volleyball and Basketball and listening to Hard Rock and Metal

Name: Jeff Saporito
Age: 23

General Info about you:
B.S. in Communications, Media & Technology from La Roche College. I’ve had a lifelong love of video games, computers, and basically anything that plugs in or requires batteries. My second lifelong passion has been writing, so fusing the two sets of interests is a wonderful thing. Having been raised as an only child, I spent a lot of time with just me and my electronics, and the interest has always stuck with me.

System or systems you use:
I regularly use both Macs and PCs for gaming, and Xbox360

Favorite gadgets:
Not too many gadgets in my life. The old 30gb iPod, crappy cell phones, some DV video cameras and that’s about it.

Hobbies:
Hobbies are video gaming (obviously), eating and cooking, playing with my toy poodle, spending time with my fiance and continually developing my encyclopedic knowledge of useless movie and music info.
