About pvreditor
I have always been interested in cars, electronics and music and I have worked in the electronics/communications field for more than 40 years. (I know... astonishing!) I have always enjoyed broadcasting and I have had many jobs in radio and television. I've DJ'ed at five or six radio stations (the last was in 1978) and even a couple of clubs when this was still a novelty at clubs.

The technology of radio and television has always been more interesting than performing, however. I now work for a company that sells cell phones over the Internet, where I make YouTube videos about cell phones. At some noteworthy prior jobs, I was a broadcast engineer for Sprint Nextel and the technology editor for a magazine called TV Technology, a trade journal for the professional television industry. I have had many articles published in TV Technology and other trade magazines, including several product reviews of a variety of professional television equipment. I've also had a few articles published in newspapers and newsstand car magazines. At the moment, I'm the editor of a magazine called Government Video.

I play guitar and sing reasonably well, and recorded a CD of obscure folk and novelty songs a few years ago. I make lots of videos and post them to YouTube, and have even earned some money at it.

I am a US Army veteran, having served from 1971 to 1974 and received an honorable discharge. I reached the lofty rank of Specialist 4.

For other hobbies... I love to read, work on the houses and cars (I have two homes and four cars), eat at restaurants, listen to the Beatles, go to movies and fiddle with electronic stuff. I have two cats.

With a little ambition, regular bathing and getting to work on time, I have achieved more in life than I ever thought possible when I was daydreaming in high school. It's amazing what those three things will do for an interesting career.

SAP Information:

The SAP process, where I could add products to the Computers, Software and Business & Technology categories, was disabled in early September 2013. There is no word from Epinions on whether SAP will ever be enabled again. So at this time, I can not add new products in my categories.

Thanks!
