Tekzilla: About the Hosts
Tekzilla feeds your tech hunger! Patrick Norton, Robert Heron and Veronica Belmont bring you hands on reviews of the latest gear, tips and tricks that improve the tech you already own and conversations with the most informative experts around.
When he's not changing diapers, watching movies or sitting next to a cactus somewhere in the desert waiting to fuel or repair an off road race truck, Patrick is probably testing products or watching movies for Tekzilla or HD Nation
He's written hundreds of product reviews for the likes of PCMag, Cnet, PC World, CPU and TechTV, launched the online video and podcast group at Ziff Davis where he produced and hosted 188 episodes of DL.TV (and learned more about Flash dev, routing tables, Content Delivery Networks, compression tools, RSS feeds, log file analysis and traffic verification than he ever thought he'd need to know) and started using computers back in the late CP/M early DOS days.
He's best known for answering tough tech questions, skewering products and beating dead PCs with a sledgehammer for the four years at TechTV when he hosted a live daily television show called The Screen Savers.
Robert Heron is a technologist at heart with more than a decade of editorial, laboratory, and media outlet experience that has focused on the consumer electronics (CE) industry. Robert's expertise as a home theater analyst and consultant stems from the testing and published review of hundreds of related products as well as his continuing education and certification through the assistance of organizations including CEDIA, Imaging Science Foundation (ISF), and THX. When he's not calibrating home theater systems or advising clients about the latest A/V gear under the banner of his company Heron Fidelity, Robert enjoys traveling, reading, and almost any flavor of motor sports.
