Revision3 Welcomes Brand New Tech Show: SoldierKnowsBest

May 17th, 2011 at 09:00 by Rob Saurini in Uncategorized


Today I’m very happy to announce our latest show launch: the YouTube sensation SoldierKnowsBest. SKB is hosted by Mark Watson, a certified geek and Army reservist. Mark has been diligently building up his YouTube following over the past three years and now has over 200,000 subscribers and 3 million monthly views and is now bringing his show to Revision3. Each week Mark is on top of every bit of gadget news, reporting stories and doing unboxings and reviews of all the latest gear. He’s usually first to report the latest rumors and keeps his audience totally up to date.

I first met Mark at CES this year, though I’d been a fan of his channel for quite a while. He’s a great guy and I’m extremely excited to officially welcome him to the Revision3 family of shows!

Revision3 Meet-ups in Chicago and Baltimore in June

We’ve finalized our plans for next week’s meet-ups. Hope to see you there – we’re buying the beer!

Thurs. June 16th – Chicago

5:30 – 7:00 pm

Junior’s Sports Bar:

Friday, June 17th – Baltimore

5:3o – 7:00 pm

James Joyce Pub:



Hey Chicago and Baltimore/DC Rev3 fans,

I’m coming to town next month and would love to meet up with our local viewers for a beer and a chat.

I’ll be in Chicago on Thursday, June 16th and Baltimore on Friday, June 17th and could use your suggestions on the best spot (bar, lounge, etc.) to meet.

In Chicago, the locale needs to be somewhat near McCormick Place, so please keep that in mind.

In Baltimore, we’re thinking maybe Dougherty’s or Fraziers or The Windup Space or The Slaint Pub (or other options!).

In both cities, the meet-up will be from 5:30 to 7:00pm.

Please add your suggestion/vote in the comments. Thanks!
