A daily tip delivering the inside secrets of Windows, Mac OSX, Google and the internet
Veronica is a technology and gaming centric video host based out of San Francisco. Her current projects include Tekzilla (a weekly tech help and how-to show on Revision3.com), and The Sword and Laser (a science fiction and fantasy podcast and community, co-hosted with Tom Merritt).
As far as her previous experiences, Veronica has written for Slate, DoubleX, MaximumPC and PC Gamer, and was the original host of Qore on the PlayStation Network. Veronica initially made her mark as a producer and on-air talent for CNET Networks (now CBS Interactive). For this network she worked on shows such as Buzz Out Loud, MP3 Insider, Crave, and Prizefight. In 2007 she left CNET to host the eclectic video show Mahalo Daily, which was known as one of the top new podcasts in 2008 on iTunes.
As an avid gamer and social networking fanatic (with more than 1 million Twitter followers), Veronica often speaks about her interests and experience at conferences and panels. She has been the emcee at events for companies such as gdgt, Boxee, MacHeist and RiffTrax, and advisor for companies such as About.me, gdgt, Goodreads, Soundtracking, WeGame and more.
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.
