About and Contact

Life Tech Shorts originally grew out of DIY Life Tech. Originally established in 2006, DIY Life Tech has covered tech, gadgets, home items and consumer electronics for over 15 years, both on our popular blog and our YouTube channel.

We launched Life Tech Shorts because we saw a need for more tactical, targeted answers to questions about products, as well as content in new formats including videos and web stories.

The main DIY Life Tech site is where you should go for in-depth product reviews and analysis, as well as more extensive coverage of creator tools and entrepreneurship. Life Tech Shorts shares reviews of everyday products, as well as more tactical, targeted answers to your pressing product questions and video coverage from our YouTube channel.
