14-year old to launch site for posting your own product reviews

Stephen Lawson | Oct. 2, 2012
Tyler Simpson knows a lot about reviewing tech products. The Seattle 14-year-old and his friend, Brandon Keller, have created several YouTube channels, including ThatAppleGeek, where they review products and report on technology.

OrbitFront is already talking with some vendors about participating, Simpson said. The company expects to start out with midsize vendors of accessories rather than big device makers such as Apple and Samsung. Attracting a strong lineup of vendors is the biggest challenge Simpson sees for the company. However, working with OrbitFront can give vendors valuable product feedback and good exposure, he said.

"Users trust reviews a lot, unlike advertising," Simpson said. "It actually works quite well as marketing."
