HI! My name is Erica Griffin. I am known on the interwebs as The Technology Nerd Who Likes to Film Stuff. I create insanely in-depth technology reviews as well as blog my experiences about what it is like to incorporate them into everyday living! I am from San Diego, CA. I went to the University of California, San Diego for my bachelors degree in Cognitive Science (I studied brains and hormones and why people do what they do). I specialized in Human Computer Interaction. Then I minored in Digital Media Production. Mix that all together and you get THE TECHNOLOGY NERD WHO LIKES TO FILM STUFF hehe. I love my boyfriend, François Simond, aka Supercurio, from XDA. He means everything to me and has been so supportive of me through all this! I love tech (obviously), I like to sing, I like to make origami models, I love to travel, I believe in Jesus Christ as my Lord and savior....

  1. Dear Erica,
    Enjoyed your review of the Nexus 5. The lack of battery life, expandable storage and Wi-Fi calling may keep this phone out of my pocket. I too have a metal box of an office where I take most of calls so Wi-Fi calling is essential. I think the Nexus 5 is the first in a wave of unlocked non-contact phones which will soon dominate the market. What do you think?
    All the best & happy holidays


  2. Hey I love your videos especially the one you did with the nexus 4. I know have a nexus 5 and I was wondering if you have any tips to lower the throttling levels on my device?
