"Yes, NewsWatch is a source of news and reviews for me too, but it’s also an avenue for me to share the stories, gadgets, and apps I hear about. I get to spend every day searching the web for ways to make your life more enjoyable and fun…not too bad.   Plus, I get to hang with a ton of people that are not only colleagues but friends who have the same desire to bring you the best products around.  NewsWatch may be a job, but it’s also my life.  And as Ron Burgundy once said, “In no way is that depressing….Cannonball!”"
