For the last 5.5 years I sat at the helm of TmoNews.com, a site I founded with a passion and focus for all things T-Mobile. Unfortunately, circumstances happen and you try and move on and that’s exactly what I’ve done by landing at 9to5Google.com. I’ve long known Seth, Mark and Jordan and the rest of their team as a great bunch of tech bloggers and I know this is the kind of place that will allow me to introduce the same level of creativity, passion and joy as my previous role.

Writing about Google is a huge task and a challenge I welcome with open arms. From Chrome, to Android, Chrome OS and everything in-between I’ll tackle Google topics head-on and do so in a way that provides both news reporting as well as insight into why the story matters to you.

I’ll make this short and sweet because I’m ready to roll up my proverbial sleeves (I live in Florida, it’s 85 out so no actual sleeves) and get busy cranking out news, editorials, reviews, video and more. I’ll raise the level of engagement here and I encourage you to tell me when I’m wrong, when I’m right and when I should just stop talking.

On a personal note, you’re welcome to follow my other rantings and ravings over at Twitter.com/davidj and Google Plus: +DavidBeren. I’m a die hard Cubs fan and hope to see them win a World Series sometime before we discover Aliens exist and life on Mars is practical. If you have any questions for me, drop them below and I’ll surely provide an answer.

Time to get started.

  1. I too followed you from TmoNews becasue you were the only site I trusted when it came to my carrier. I too recently had issues at work that almost caused me to quit so I can relate. Either way, I followed you here as well and I wish you nothing but good luck here

  3. I followed you from TmoNews as much of the people here. Now here is a question for you: We will ever know what really happened with TmoNews and your abrupt departure? Are you in a non-disclosure agreement so you cannot blog about your side of the story about what really happened?

    David I followed you here from T-Monews.

  5. -_- so you are not on Facebook ?

  6. Gratz mate although I do think someone who is a staunch Iphone fan like yourself covering Google is a bit of a very long stretch but suit yourself.

  7. Show Time says:

    Welcome back! That was quick! I’ll miss all of your updates on TmoNews but this will be even better!!

  23. Welcome back. I hope now and then we will still get some Tmobile scoops as you maintain your contacts. The best revenge is to scoop the new TmoNews. I hope you at least feel good about all the love you’ve gotten on the TMoNews comments. We miss you already

  27. David !! Less than 48 hours and you’re already kick A__ and taking names. Good luck, and at some point….

    9to5TMo ???

    Just sayin’.

  28. Speak for yourself. : )

    David is the MAN! I mean, after me…

  29. Congrats David! You’ve come a long way since vzbuzz ;)

  30. I dont think anybody cares lol

    • Actually, I think a lot of people do care. David was well know as the man behind TmoNews, a very popular blog that was must read for Tmobile users and people wanting more information about Tmobile. He provided clearer and more accurate information than the company itself. Fans were outraged when he was forced out by the evil that is PhoneDog. People are happy he’s already moved on to creating a new chapter.

    • Manny Love says:

      I care. David is probably the best at providing info about things and at the same time keeping you interested no matter what the subject is. Ive been personally following tmonews forever and i must say that was my number one site for info about phones, specials, and just news articles. I’m happy David has moved on.

      • David Beren says:

        Thanks man, I’m happy to be here and that same style of writing will carry over! I’m just getting my feet wet here and learning the flow, but when I find a groove…watch out!
