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, Fran├žois 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. Nice video, i Own a Note 2 and considering if worth the upgrade, S-Pen not as useful on note 2 as Note 3, Btw I love Stock Android, so I’m considering as well to Upgrade to an Nexus 5, or an Xperia Z1, what do you think ?

  2. Hi Erica. Loved the review on the Note 3. I purchased my Note 3 in October, and I just wanted you to know that it does not have the “Home” button problem you were describing in your video. My button is all but flat to the case and without movement. It is a SM-N900T from T-Mobile. Production dated 09/18/2013.
    Keep up the great work, I’m not much of a tech geek, so I learned a lot from your review, and hope to learn more each time I watch.
    Dusty.

    1. Hi Erica, learned a lot about my Note 3 from your review, and it also doesn’t have the Home button issue, its nice and doesn’t jiggle and my phone is a SM-N900W8 Canadian.
      I have a question: Are you going to make an updated review about 4.4.2 Note 3 Rom? Because it’s already out and I wanna know if it changed a lot and what do you think about the update.
      Keep up the great work, love your videos. Have a great Year.
