Editor in Chief
Robert lives in upstate New York where he was born and raised. Technology was always his passion. His first computer was a Radio Shack TRS80 Color that used a cassette tape to save programs, and his first laptop was a Toshiba T1200FB that sported a CGA greyscale screen and two 720kb floppy drives (no hardrive). From the early 90’s through late 2011, he only owned Motorola phones starting with the MircroTAC all the way through to the Droid X. He broke that streak when he bought the Galaxy Nexus. Now he's sporting a DROID DNA, and absolutely loves it. He has a wonderful wife and a 4 year old son. In his free time he enjoys sports, movies, TV, working out, and trying to keep up with the rapid fast world of technology.

Born and raised on a farm in the backwoods of Vermont, Jim spent a few years after high school traveling the states, settling temporarily on Massachusetts. His first Android phone was an HTC G1, and he's had countless devices since. He is also really good at convincing people to buy stuff.

Raised in North Carolina, Jeff Causey is a chief financial officer and licensed CPA in Durham, North Carolina. During the 90's, between the time he spent as the "IT guy" for employers and pursuing his gaming hobbies, he morphed into a decently skilled power user. In the early 2000's he became interested in Linux and started following efforts to develop a Linux based phone operating system. Jeff currently uses a Samsung Galaxy Note 2, a Nexus 7 (2013) and a Samsung Tablet 10.1. Unfortunately, his wife and kids have all drunk the Apple Kool-Aid and have i-devices. Life at home often includes demonstrations of the superiority of his Android based devices. In his free time, Jeff is active in his church, a local MINI Cooper car club, and his daughter's soccer club. Jeff is married, has three kids, and a golden retriever.
Born and raised in New Jersey, Justin is a student at Fairleigh Dickinson where he is a marketing major, with a focus on consumer behavior or market research. He's very talkative about plenty of subjects and even earned Class Chatterbox in high school. Justin is a huge Cincinnati Bengals and Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim fan. As for his current device rotation, he has the HTC One (M8) on Verizon. He chose it because of its stunning hardware and Sense's visual presentation. On the side, Justin carries an HP TouchPad that he picked up during its fire sale. Despite running Android on it, it seems just about done for as it refuses to startup. He is keeping an eye out for what Google has in store with Android 5.0 or "L."

Born in southern Alabama, Jared spends his working time selling phones and his spare time writing about them. The Android enthusiasm started with the original Motorola Droid and an unhealthy obsession with fixing things that aren't broken. This accidentally led to being the go-to guy for anything more complicated than a toaster, which he considers more of a curse than a blessing. Jared is enrolled in online classes at the University of Phoenix, and spends his spare time on video games and listening to music.
