About Our Team
I’m Bryan Smith, an Entrepreneur and Engineer currently based in the Pacific Northwest. I am a skilled flight test engineer and am known for being an expert in Internet Marketing. I currently operate several ecommerce businesses and enjoy helping people find the products that they want.
As a former web hosting provider and developer of ecommerce websites, I’ve learned a great deal about how people shop online. I also work with other businesses to help them build their web presence online and provide quality services to their customers.
I’m not ashamed to admit that I do probably 95% of my shopping online. I’m not opposed to going to a brick and mortar store to do my shopping, but I find it more convenient to buy the things I need online and have them delivered to me. It also allows me to spend more time doing the things I enjoy doing, like traveling, learning new stuff, and spending time with friends and family.
When I look for places to buy from online it has always been hard to find quality reviews and unbiased reporting on the products I’m searching for. I’ve always wanted a place that I could go to get REAL reviews by REAL people.
Yeah, I know I could go purchase things from Amazon. I mean, they do have tons of reviews on almost every product, but when you know how Amazon truly works, you find out that those reviews are typically highly biased. In order to get their product highly reviewed, Amazon store owners give away tons of free product to people in return for a favorable review! Store owners also join review clubs where store owners give each other good reviews in return for reviews of their own products. Not really a reliable source for information!
What I always wanted was a place I could go and relate to the person writing the review. I want to know who it is doing the reviews so I can figure out if the review is actually helpful to me or not. Someone who is incompetent at cell phones is probably not the person I want to read a cell phone review from. I’d prefer an actual person who I know their background and can relate to and understand where they are coming from with a review.
As someone who is engrained in technology on a daily basis and has a very wide range of interests, I try and play around with a large variety of products. Since I couldn’t find someone who provided me the kinds of reviews that I sought, I decided to start this website. I want to make this site into a place where people can come and read the reviews that are written by ME and won’t necessarily always be positive. I put my products through the wringer and will give you the good along with the bad. I’ll also be creating YouTube videos about everything to help you make your purchasing decision.
I intend to review almost everything that I buy that I think that others may like to read about. I’ll also be posting random stuff that I’m working on, whether it is woodworking or traveling.
At some point I’d like to get this website to a place where advertisers will help defray the costs of running the site. For now, though, I’m just creating it out of my enjoyment for technology and wanting to provide honest reviews.
