While he created his channel in 2007, it wasn’t until two years later that Evans began posting videos on the website. He started out doing reviews of applications for the iPhone, and also producing a few technology tips videos including comparisons of browsers and information on the iPhone. Being one of the earliest and most constant presence on the website, his channel grew steadily over the next few years.

He also does reviews on the latest in gaming technology when it comes to laptops, mice, and keyboards. He has also produced videos called “Is It Worth it?” which give details on new technology, and if the items are worth buying.

In the series, he buys various newly released gadgets, gaming items, and technology to try out for a video while giving his opinions as well as a review. Amazon is one of the biggest technology companies in the world, alongside Google, Apple, and Facebook. Amazon has become popular through its online e-commerce presence though in recent years, it has delved towards investments in established industries while implementing innovative technology on a mass scale. They have made advancements in e-commerce, artificial intelligence, and cloud computing.
