Anniversaries & Milestones

Published

on

GadgetMatch celebrates its second anniversary this month.

While we started off as a YouTube Channel in September of 2014, it wasn’t till a year later in August of 2015 that we began our journey as a tech media company. Much has happened since but our mission remains the same — to match users with the right gadgets to fit their needs.

The year thus far has been amazing for us:

  • On March 30, we breached 100K subscribers on YouTube.
  • This July, we also hit 300K likes on Facebook, making us one of the largest tech news sites on Facebook in Southeast Asia.
  • Our team has also grown considerably from three full time members to ten. New additions include Isa Rodriguez (Lifestyle Editor), Leez Escalona (Project Manager), Alven Villavicencio (Accounts Manager), Daniel Morial (Content Creator), and Kevin Bruce Francisco (Multimedia Producer).   

As we continue to strive towards more milestones, we want to thank you all for taking this journey with us. Whether you were here from the start or are a new addition, we are grateful to have you on board.

As a way to give back, we have resumed weekly gadget giveaways via our Scavenger Hunt. We’re also working on merchandise and other awesome ways to bring the whole community together, details of which we will be announcing very soon.

‘Milestones’ celebrates GadgetMatch’s story and commitment

For years of covering technology

Published

on

It’s been five years since GadgetMatch was established. Founded on the premise of making life better and easier through technology, we’ve come a long way since then. We saw how technology plays a key role in shifting our lives. Even then, we’re still looking forward to what innovations tomorrow will bring.

To commemorate our journey in covering the latest news in technology, we tasked a Filipino artist to create a set of wallpapers entitled Milestones, reflecting our story.

Milestones: Peak

Peak symbolizes being on top of what we do; the pleasure of seeing a beautiful content created after an arduous journey. It emphasizes on the contentment we feel about our quality work and a metaphor for looking over the horizon; we won’t limit our creativity and will never stop innovating, just like technology.

Milestones: Passion

Passion is the inner fire inside us. There’s a burning desire we have from day one, and we never let it die because we stay committed to our vision and mission: Explaining technology in simple terms. While keeping up with technology can be exhausting, our passion burns stronger.

Milestones: Perception

Perception is a wallpaper that relies on the viewer’s perspective. It’s a reflection of people’s perception and our journey that we don’t share. Are we going up or going down? In reality, we’re all just going up, and the stairway symbolizes the little steps we take to achieve our goal. We’re not rushing, but we’re on our way. Help us achieve 1 million subscribers on YouTube!
