cameronCameron Summerson is the News Editor for How-to Geek and its sister site, Review Geek. Cam’s career started as a news writer for Android Police, but now he finds himself reaching for his iPhone just as often as whatever Android device he’s carrying at the time. If you ask him what his favorite operating system is, there’s an eight out of ten chance he’ll say Chrome OS…depending on the day.
