Andrea-Marie Petrou has worked in the technology industry for four years and was a staff writer and gadget reviewer for Computeractive for three of those.

She loves gadgets, as well as writing about broadband and Britain's Big Brother state. As a result she always has something to say about DNA databases and kids fingerprinting.

Andrea has also contributed to girl's tech site ShinyShiny, where she wrote about girl's tech from Hello Kitty to the more naughty toys out there.

When she's not writing about tech, she also edits and writes fashion site ShinyStyle and bridal site Bridalwave.
