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, short-form 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 long-form, in-depth product reviews and analysis. Life Tech Shorts shares reviews of everyday products, as well as shorter, targeted answers to your pressing product questions and video coverage from our YouTube channel.


DIY Life Tech is led by Thomas Smith.

Thomas Smith is a food and travel photographer and writer based in the San Francisco Bay Area. His photographic work routinely appears in publications including Food and Wine, Conde Nast Traveler, and the New York Times and his writing appears in IEEE Spectrum, SFGate, the Bold Italic and more. Smith holds a degree in Cognitive Science (Neuroscience) and Anthropology from the Johns Hopkins University.
