Larry Greenberg – Hi I’m Larry Greenberg, Editor in Chief of Run Around Tech.
I started Run Around Tech in 2011 with the goal of making technology easy for you to understand. I know there’s a ton of mobile gear out there and it can be hard deciding what’s good and what’s not. I hope you find the site a valuable resource for news and reviews of the product you crave.
My roots in the online tech community go way back. I served as the forum administrator at Howard Forums, the internet’s largest discussion forum devoted to cell phones, for 2 years. I also moderated the forums at Treo Central and Blackberry Forums as well. Under the user name “lgreenberg” I generated over 100,000 posts and developed a reputation as a person always eager to help.
As a Blackberry user I began doing reviews of accessories for the various RIM devices but that all changed when Apple launched the iPhone. I quickly transitioned to what would eventually become a love affair of all things Apple. My YouTube channel is heavily Apple accessory focused but also manages to cover many other tech genres as well.
In April of 2009 I started writing at Gear Diary and was quickly transitioned into a editor’s position where I stayed for close to 2 years.
I’m very excited for the future of Run Around Tech and hope you come along for the ride.

Marc Hawkins – Hi, I’m Marc, Senior Writer at Run Around Tech.
>10 PRINT “Hello World!”
** DONE **
That was it. I was hooked. Type in a sequence of commands and they appear on-screen. It was the mid-80s, and this was the TI-99/4A, complete with external tape deck, 13″ Zenith (color!) TV monitor and a book on BASIC. I’d spend hours re-typing programs from that book and watch them magically transform the display with dancing colors and delightful sounds. An IBM 386 PC with a book on DOS followed a few years later. Then a NES console after that. And the list goes on. My love affair with technology in all shapes and sizes stretches back as long as I can remember. Much of my youth was spent in front of that 13″ Zenith (did I mention it was in color?), or at the local book store pouring over computer books and magazines, or unsuccessfully trying to find other kids with a similar interest in my small home town.
These days I spend most of my free time on my MacBook banging out code, or on my XBox 360 or Playstation 3, getting berated by tweens slaughtering me in online shooters. When I’m on the move, my iPhone is glued to my hand. I’m a diehard Apple loyalist, but I still love wandering the aisles of Best Buy, drooling over the latest mobile phones, netbooks, laptops and more. I’ve got enough technology in my house to sustain DARPA in case of nuclear attack and enough CAT-5 to reach the West Coast. Oh, and I also have an unhealthy obsession with horror/sci-fi flicks, comics and pop culture collectibles. I’m the total nerd package.
I live and breath this stuff and I hope my articles and reviews can help you make sense of the increasingly complex and constantly outdated sea of game hardware and tech gadgets found in the marketplace today.

Roger Ogden – Hi I’m Roger, Writer at Run Around Tech
Hello humans. My name is Roger Ogden and I’m currently a senior attending Idaho State University. In May 2012, I plan on obtaining my Bachelor’s of Science in Psychology and then enrolling in Graduate school to obtain my PhD in Clinical Psychology. I have another life, too. A life that’s consumed by technology. I’m enamored with new gadgets that make our lives easier and more efficient. It seems trivial to get excited over something as silly as technology, but the ways it improves our lives is something that’s becoming fundamentally driven into our everyday lives. Hopefully my words here on Run Around Tech can produce thought and interaction between both myself and you. Please, if you have any questions, I’d be happy to answer them at my email. Again, I’m very thankful for the opportunity and look forward to providing some interesting things to say on Run Around Tech.
Ashley Smith - Hi I’m Ashley, I’m 27 years old, and a writer at Run Around Tech.
I was born and raised in Nova Scotia, Canada; I graduated high school in 2006 and attended a community college in June of 2006 for Human Services to help those with disabilities but then decided to change my major and re-entered the same college in 2010 in a course called Applied Communication of Arts, the course consisted of a whole bunch of mini courses such as photography, graphic design, video editing, drawing and many other things. I decided since I have always love technology that that would be a much better course for myself and it would help with my futures plans.
From 2007 and onward I worked on gathering my own information and teaching myself my own person techniques. Everything I know before I entered the college course in 2010 I learned on my own, much consisting of software programs, graphic design, photography, and other things. Since 2010 I have just added on to what I was taught and I hope to gain further information to broaden my selection of interest.
As of right now I am a freelance photographer, graphic designer, video editor/reviewer for my own YouTube channel (neek247) and a writer for Run Around Tech.

Brian Goslin- Hi, I’m Brian, Writer at Run Around Tech!
My dad said I’d grow out of video games as I got older. Yeah, that didn’t happen. The NES started my obsession, and I’ve owned pretty much every system handheld and console from the past 20 years, including the new Wii U. I’m an avid collector of games, which is evident in my collection of over 600 pieces.
Did I mention I love gadgets? Its an unhealthy obsession, really. At the moment I probably own in my house over 30 gadgets that most do the same thing!! Bring on some more!!!! I also have used a mac for the last 13 years, and try my best to keep up with everything Cupertino has thrown at me. Got to be current!!
I work management retail, which has included stops at Apple, Starbucks, and of course Gamestop! Really excited to be a part of the Run Around Tech team!!
You can find me on Xbox Live (Prowl), Playstation Network (Prowl), or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
