Here at the interface, we provide daily posts about the latest from the tech world – we love creating high quality content for the people interested in tech, all while making it more accessible for people who want short snippets of what is going on. Our small team produces informative articles about the latest gadgets from the biggest companies as well as our ‘Tech Basics’ guides and daily deals.
What do we do?
We publish the latest news about technology, cars, electric cars and more as well as the occasional review about a TV show. We also send out regular newsletters, with a sum up about the best news of the week or that day. Every weekend, we put out a piece we call “Weekends with the interface – Best stories of the week” – this takes 5 of the best stories of that week and gives a sum up and if you do want to read more, you can.

May 2013 – A&T Tech was launched as ‘Alex and Tom’s Tech Advice and News’ as a Facebook only blog, with no website presence at all. All blog posts were published to Facebook only, in their entirety and were mainly structured to be easy to read with one or two paragraphs and ‘glanceable’.
September 2013 – Alex and Ed Gaming was launched by parent company, KDL Media – this new site focused on gaming news, tips and mainly – gaming videos.
In early 2014, the blog rebranded as Alex and Tom’s Tech and a new WIX based website was launched. At this time the site was making no money. All articles were published from then on to the new site.
2015 – 2016
The website as it is now was released. At this time the site was still operating as Alex and Tom’s Tech.
Past articles from the early days were added to the new WordPress based site and the blog was rebranded again, as A&T Tech and while the Alex and Tom’s Tech brand is still around (our URL etc) the A&T Tech name will be more commonly seen.
April 2017 – A&T Tech debuts HTTPS support. Learn more here
April 2018 – Alex and Ed Gaming was shuttered. All back catalog of news was migrated to the A&T Tech website under the gaming tab. Gaming videos still live on, via the YouTube channel.
December 2020 – We decided to remove KDL Media and A&T Tech from Facebook completely in order to make a stand for privacy. Learn more here.
November 2021 – A&T Tech is now called the interface. Learn more here.
In June 2022, we launched our first video podcast, ‘Creator Spotlight’ which is our brand new series where we talk to creators about what they make and do and how they got started. Our first episode was with networking YouTuber Cody MacCallum and the most recent episode was with MacRumors staff writer, Sami Fathi.
In August 2022, the site was moved from shared hosting to AWS Lightsail, to better serve visitors in the US as the website was hosted in the UK.
September 2022 – We launched a brand new logo and design for the site. Details can be seen below:

The new logo uses the same colour scheme, but adds some much needed depth.
September 2022, the Creator Spotlight Podcast was rebranded too.

Alex started the website back in May 2013 as a small project to help close friends understand the latest Apple news as well as offer handy guides for gadgets. The first incarnation operated solely as a Facebook page. Around two years later, in 2015 the website as it stands now was launched.
Alex also started KDL Media and Publishing to form a publishing company to manage A&T Tech and at the time, the newer Alex and Ed Gaming site and gaming channel.
the interface is published in the United Kingdom by KDL Media and Publishing.
