    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.

    Super Moderator | Send Peg a Message

    thetoothfairy (or toothy as she's affectionately known) is probably the oldest mod/super mod here at 53 years young! Guess it's ok to be a nerd when you're older, right?

    She built computers for 20 years, is a Certified for State Farm software, a graphic artist, and builds websites. She has always loved technology and loves her iPhone. Once she got a taste of the iPhone, she then fell in love with Apple products and found MMi which is a great place!

    Peg and her husband also own an Autobody Shop, Tow Truck Company and an impound yard for the city where they deal with all the drunks that get pulled over when their cars get impounded, plus when people get into accidents and such.

    She is married and has been for 32 years, and has been with her husband for 36 years. She has two sons, 26 and 30.

    Moderator | Send iYeow a Message

    iYeow is a Chinese Malaysian / Canadian who now lives in Vancouver , British Columbia. He is not married and is retired (at least for now). He loves to teach people - not just on jailbreaking and fixing iphones but anything that he is talented at. Sometimes iYeow can be very strict when giving out instructions (especially on jailbreaking and problem solving) - it is not that he's mean, but just his nature; the way he teaches.

    Besides his free time, iYeow usually spends some time daily with his lovely and affectionate rabbit - she has almost fully recovered from her infections that almost cost her life.

    Juan 35 years young. He spends all day playing with his dogs, doing upgrades and maintenance to his new house, and trying as hard as humanly possible not to laugh at those caught in the rat race of 9-5 "paid jail time" life as he lives the dream of a stay at home business owner. Every second of the day that his eyes are open, Juan is free. His schedule is about 7 hours off everyone else's just because it can be and it pisses everyone else off that got up at the crack of dawn when he posts "just woke up and made coffee" on Facebook at noon.
