Today marks the launch of Revision3‘s new series Tom’s Top 5, featuring internet personality Tom Merritt, current TwiT Network host and former journalist at CNET and TechTV. Viewers of the new series can quickly download the low down on the newest geek culture news in short segments hosted by Merritt.
Tom’s Top 5 provides insightful commentary on technology trends, from gadgets to the latest memes, peppered as always with a little of Merritt’s characteristic wit. The first episode, ‘5 Must Have Geek Gadgets‘ premiered today, followed by ‘5 Worst SyFy Shows’ next Tuesday with a new show each week.
“I’m excited about working with a lot of folks I know and respect to do a show format I love,” said Merritt. “Plus they’re allowing me to give away stupid prizes, which makes me very happy.” Merritt will be interacting with fans through a giveaway called “Tom’s Lame Giveaways,” whose first prize is an iPhone case that has been touched by Tekzilla host Veronica Belmont. Wow.
