Benefit of the Doud
Adam Doud was the host and producer of the Android Authority podcast for more than two years. In addition to covering weekly news in the world of Android, the podcast takes deeps dives into technologies surrounding Android, like 5G, app development, chip architecture, and more. Adam has interviewed senior officials at AT&T, Sprint, Verizon, Motorola, Samsung, LG, and more for the podcast.
Adam is also the creator and host of the Benefit of the Doud podcast, which reviews and discusses popular technology. As a freelancer, Adam has been writing reviews, features, and editorials in the technology space since 2011, with bylines at HowToGeek.com, Reviewed.com, Pocketnow.com, Booredatwork.com, and more. All this started back in 2009 when Jon Rubenstein took to the stage to introduce the webOS and the Palm Pre. Adam watched that keynote from his cubicle, and since that day, Adam was hooked on mobile.
Before moving full time into the mobile space, Adam worked in tech support or over 16 years for an internet service provider, an online university, and an iOS app developer. Adam loves helping people get things done in the best and most efficient way possible. It's this combination of experience that helps him understand technology and explain it in a way that's approachable.
I use four different platforms every day—Windows 10, macOS Catalina, an Android phone (currently an LG V50 running Android 9), and iOS 13 on iPad. As part of my job I routinely backup and erase mobile devices and switch between them. I live entirely in the cloud using a combination of OneDrive and Google Drive. I could pick up a brand new laptop and have it ready to go with all of my work in under an hour. I'm also an avid podcaster with a Shure 55SH (Elvis) Mic and a Zoom h5 recorder. My daily life takes me through a number of gadgets and gizmos including a DJI Mavic Air drone, a DJI Osmo Mobile 3 phone gimbal, a Nintendo Switch, and a large assortment of headphones and portable batteries.
