Techgoondu.com is published by Goondu Media Pte Ltd, which is based in Singapore.
The site was originally founded by Ong Boon Kiat, Oo Gin Lee and Alfred Siew in June 2008, when the three men were all technology journalists in Singapore Press Holdings.
The “goondus” have always been a bunch of technology journalists and ex-journalists from Singapore who share a common love for all things geeky and digital, from cellphones to graphics cards to games. Together, we’ve had decades of experience covering news and reviews from the early 1990s.
Why are we blogging? Simply to discuss tech issues that are often not mainstream but pique the interest of tech users nonetheless. Please feel free to drop us a line anytime — we love feedback.
Got a tip for us? Love our geeky takes, or simply can’t stand our goondu tastes in gadgets? Simply comment on the posts or drop us an e-mail.
If you are a tech firm or media relations company interested to show us your newfangled gizmos, drop us a note at firstname.lastname@example.org
