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’.
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.

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.
We decided to remove A&T Tech from Facebook completely in order to make a stand for privacy. Learn more here.

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.
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.
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.
The Creator Spotlight Podcast was rebranded too.
The Charging Status podcast became in-house and had a new co-host, Jim Starling.
