“AndNowYouKnow.net was born out of necessity. Surfing the web it’s hard to find solid and independent information about the plethora of gadgets and technology that is available. Even when you are looking for an honest review of a product you are more likely to find either an ad or a blatant product plug. What’s needed for the average person to be able to make an informed decision about what products to buy is a trustworthy source that provides interesting and easy to understand reviews in an effective manner. That’s where the idea of AndNowYouKnow.net came from: Make short video reviews of the products so that people can see how they work (or don’t work) without having to search for hours on the web.”
Who are we you ask? AndNowYouKnow.net is the brain child of Morten Rand-Hendriksen – a gadget fan frustrated by the lack of quality gadget reviews and information on the net. Sure there are hundreds if not thousands of sites that feature gadgets and technology but very few of them actually provide any useful information. When he finally had enough he and his business partner Angela Chih teamed up with renowned gadget expert Akash Sablok to form AndNowYouKnow.net/.ca/.tv to provide high-quality video and text reviews and news of and about everything that can be listed under the gadget genre. Welcome to the revolution. Web is the new TV.
Introducing the Players:
MORTEN RAND-HENDRIKSEN – Editor-in-Chief, Creator, Head Writer, Megalomaniac
Morten’s experience ranges from film- and digital photography to video editing to computers. He owns 6 PCs, 5 photo cameras and 2 video cameras and can be said to be a bit of a gadget junkie.
Born and bred in Norway Morten moved to Canada in 2002. With a university degree in Philosophy and a disposition so cynical it makes Jack Cafferty sound like Santa Claus his commentaries are dripping with sarcasm and brutal honesty. If a gadget of less than stellar value comes his way you’ll know it. Because from Morten comes nothing but the hard unedited truth.
Besides editing this site and it’s videos Morten also works as a technical producer for a major sports TV network and runs the digital media company Pink & Yellow Media.
AKASH SABLOK – Gadget Guru / Eye Candy
A freelance automotive and technology journalist, Akash’s reviews have been featured in various newspapers and magazines since 1991. This self professed ‘geek’ comes without a pocket protector and knows more about gadgets than that guy at your office that says he’ll fix your computer when he has time. If you’re tired of the techno-babble that inundates the virtual world, look no further. With his uncanny ability to translate information quickly and effectively, even your grandparents will be able to explain the difference between wireless B, G & N.
You may recognize him as the “Features” host on Global’s Driver’s Seat and G4TechTV‘s Lab With Leo, but he can now be found showing off the latest gizmo’s/good’s on Citytv Vancouver’s Breakfast Television, the Omni Punjabi News Hour, Shaw’s Urban Rush, and right here at AndNowYouKnow.net
ANGELA CHIH – Director, Producer, Link to Reality
With nine years of TV broadcasting experience, Angela has pretty much done it all. Making the ‘yellow’ half of Pink&Yellow Media, this one’s the one saying ‘yes,’ ‘no,’ ‘cut,’ and ‘once more with feeling!’
Angela recently left her job as an Associate Producer with Citytv’s Breakfast Television to work full time on her lifestyles blog Dabbler.ca and help keep the craziness at AndNowYouKnow within reasonable limits and the guys tethered to the ground.
