Who is GEEKSPIN? We are an unapologetically geeky New York City-based publisher who shares your fascination with everything that is techie and fun. From the hottest gadget news and reviews to the latest pop culture trends and entertainment news, we’ve got it. We thrive on bringing to you these stories in a familiar and digestible fashion.

What we do

Aside from bringing to you tech, lifestyle, and viral news stories from across the globe, at GEEKSPIN, we give a great deal of importance to our immaculately curated tech reviews. We’re always on the lookout for the newest gadget to get our hands on…

From testing the features of products, looking for their weak points, and comparing gadgets to competitors and older models, to finding the best prices of products, our reviews aim to be thorough and easy to read. With over 200 reviews already under our belt, there’s no way to go but up.

Why do we do it?

We embrace the cosplayers, Android and Apple fans, LEGO builders, Trekkies, science nerds, early adopters, Disney fans, gadget heads, film and TV show buffs, quiz whizzes, audiophiles, and foodies because we are them.

What better way to fuel our passion for everything geeky than to be in the center of it all? We aim to please our fellow geeks, so we leave no stone unturned when it comes to uncovering the best tech products, toys, collectibles, and even the hottest food trends.

Our History

GEEKSPIN, a property of CIRBS LLC, started its journey of publishing news and tech reviews back in 2017. We are a female-owned and operated business.
