David now writes and talks on technology, mobile, cyber security and consumer affairs for print and online titles including The Metro, TechRadar, Computer Weekly and International Business Times UK.
He is a resident consumer champion with BBC Rip Off Britain, a regular on ITV Good Morning Britain and BBC News Channel covering breaking consumer technology news, and reports on cyber crime and online safety for BBC Watchdog.
