Who We Are
Matt Tomkin, Tech Editor
I am an avid tech lover and the journey started back when LCD TVs and Plasma image burn were all too common.
Over the years I have sold technology in retail stores but more recently have been building numerous businesses all based around technology.
It’s great to be able to test new tech and provide my thoughts on a platform like this.
