the interface was started back in 2013 by Alex Lowe as a Facebook only blog, with no website to speak of. Since 2013, the website has been rebranded from the original Alex and Tom’s Tech Advice and News and then later as A&T Tech to the brand you see today. As of 2023, the interface is doing a lot, with two podcasts, daily news and reviews and videos on our YouTube channel.

What do we do?

the interface publishes daily news and commentary shared to this very website. Topics ranging from technology, cars, electric cars, networking and much more. We also do reviews of gadgets and cars here on the website and on our YouTube channel.

In 2022, we launched the Creator Spotlight podcast, which looks at what creators do, how they got started and what they have learned. The podcast is available on our YouTube channel and on all good podcast apps. More information can be found over on

Also in 2022, we partnered with Crossed Wires MG to make the Charging Status podcast which is a UK and Ireland focused podcast focused on EV and charging news. New episodes are published monthly. More information can be found over on


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 and 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.

The Team

Alex Lowe

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.
