A True Tech Geek at Heart, I Started my life of being a Tech Geek at the age of 5 with the BBC Micro. Went on through most of Nintendo stuff and now a Xbox 360 Fan. I also leaked the information about the leaked Hotmail passwords story from October 2009 that went World Wide. I Started writing Tech articles at the beginning of 2011, most of my articles are about Windows Phone 8, Xbox 360 and gaming news. When Chris has free time its with the family.
