    Akshay Masand is a somewhat recent college graduate from Syracuse University with a major in biomedical engineering. He has moved back to New York City post-graduation and is pursuing a career in the field of technology. One might call him a jack-of-all trades when it comes to the field of technology as it is a passion which he's had since a young age. Akshay's passion led him to create and manage several blogs which touch upon technology in general, Apple products in specific, jailbreaking, and gaming. During his free time, you will always catch him trying to game! PC Gaming, console gaming, handheld-gaming you name it! On the off chance he's not gaming, Akshay is probably busy trying to stay on top of technology news and information or trying to learn something new.

    Akshay is also an avid Apple owner and jailbreak enthusiast. He's always staying on top of the latest news and constantly trying out new tweaks, applications, themes, etc.

    I call beautiful Arizona home for 25 years (originally from South Florida), a single Mom, 20 year old son.

    Have the need for speed... Fast cars, Harleys and Hot Rods.

    I own a Custom Car/Rod/Truck Shop, customizing high end vehicles for over 20 years (actually most of my life as I grew up in my Dads garage), so modding my iDevice came kind of naturally, as nothing can remain stock.

    Super Moderator | Send Orby a Message

    Some say the creature known only as "Orby" is an alien vagabond who crash-landed on Earth aeons ago, pining to roam the cosmos once more.

    Some say he's a naked mole rat that found sentience and lost sanity.

    Some say he's the result of a casserole gone horrendously awry.

    Some say he's just a figment of an overly zealous tabloid editor's unscrupulous imagination.

    What is known, however, is scant: Orby is an iOS aficionado, with an abiding hatred for top hats and turbo-prop airplanes. The last known sighting occurred seven years ago, approximately thirty-one hundred klicks east-northeast of Niue.

    If you encounter the Orby, be warned: although he appears gruff and acataleptic, legend says he's actually quite nice... so long as you aren't hiding any delicious food on your person.

    I am 54 years young, married, have a daughter, 23 years old.

    I live in Belgrade, Serbia.

    I have a university degree in economics and I am a computer nerd since 1983 (well maybe not a nerd, but I like to use them), when I got my first Commodore 64.

    For many years I have been a manager of different trading companies, when I finally got fed up and started my second career in IT.

    Apart from that, I am also a co-owner of one small HIFI Co. I admit, I am a huge HIFI freak

    Spent also many years all over Europe, UK, Germany, Italy, Cyprus, Portugal.....

    Devin is a musician/software developer in Michigan. He plays both the piano and guitar and made his first app using nothing but an iPod touch. He's been jailbreaking since iOS 3.1.3 and has learned lots of useful things along the way. His whole family swears that his first words were "red wings."
