About Kim

Kim Komando – “America’s Digital Goddess” – is one of American’s most successful radio hosts and Web entrepreneurs – and a trusted guide to millions through the thickets of today’s digital lifestyle.

“The Kim Komando Show,” a three-hour call-in weekly radio show on technology, and Komando’s daily “Digital Minute” news reports, are heard on hundreds of radio stations across the country and hundreds more around the world. Her busy website, daily newsletters, numerous books, and weekly USA Today column reach millions of others.

“The Show” live production, is broadcast from Phoenix, Ariz., each Saturday morning. It is currently carried on over 450 stations with an estimated reach of 6.5 million listeners.

“It’s not about techies and computer-troubleshooting anymore,” she says. “It’s now about a lifestyle – the lifestyle of a digital age.”

Komando has worked in the computer industry since the age of 16, ultimately selling Unisys mainframes to corporate clients. In 1992, she followed a hunch that regular consumers were going to need help coping with a looming digital world. She left her corporate job to write and broadcast on digital issues. She began her radio career with a late-night call-in show about computers on Phoenix’s 550 KFYI-AM.

More than 20 years later, the Kim Komando Show is the largest weekend radio show in the country. On a busy Saturday morning, the show can receive 50,000 calls an hour. Her audience also follows her writing on Komando.com, about everything from how to buy a smartphone, tablet or TV to news updates on the latest data theft or NSA spying revelation.

Komando is a star in the talk-radio community as well. She received the Gracie Award for Outstanding Program Host in 2007. In 2009, she was named Talker Magazine’s “Woman of the Year.” She was an invited speaker at Fortune Magazines’ 2009 Most Powerful Woman Summit – and was even the answer to a question in Trivial Pursuit.

Komando and her husband, Phoenix radio personality Barry Young, built their first studio on a shoestring in 1994. Today they operate their own WestStar radio network from a bursting-at-the-seams 6,000-square-foot facility in Phoenix, with plans underway for a new headquarters quadruple the size.

“I am relentless in my pursuits,” says Kim. “It’s a lot of hard work, but when you dig what you do, it makes it a lot more fun.”

Komando and Young live in Phoenix with their teenage son.

Do you ever find yourself staring at your computer, waiting for a webpage to load? To get the most out of what your gadgets can accomplish, and save time, you need a web browser that can keep up. I have good news! This new and...

Gary Phillips What Version?
David Barrett Buffalo But will it offer true security? I stopped using Firefox on the PC as it was too easily compromised, AND it was slow :).
John Hanson I been using firefox for years and have Quantum. It keeps stopping and saying this web page is slowing it down. This happens on 2 of my computers and 1 work computer. What is up with this browser. This even happens on coxes home page.
Mick Harvey Gave up on FF ages ago. Every time an update was due security extensions stopped working and all sorts of crap was getting through. Using Vivaldi now.
Mary Gaither I just want internet that doesn't involve archaic land lines, over priced satellite or nothing at all. Living in an internet desert!
Miko D Darlington I don't always browse with my computer, but when I do, I only browse with Firefox!
Len Kozloski Firefox does not support silverlight anymore.
Christopher Wilborn It won't release for about a month, so why bother?
Ed Jones Hope it works with my banking sites. Have been using Chrome for that for a year or three cause FF would not cut it. I'll try again some time.
Phil Neil It's not the browser that's slow, so much as loading all the damn ads.
James Hoppe It needs Linux support
Kevin Walls Need to allow Java
Vikki Cleveland I am using the beta version now and enjoying it except there is no way to increase the font size in toolbars and menus and I miss the *Classic Theme Restorer* add-on because I like my tabs right above the window and the bookmarks on top. :) ♥

Heads up! Amazon Prime is getting a huge change next week and I'm SUPER excited to see what they deliver next! Here's a hint: You'll be able to watch movies like never before!

Matt Krogmeier That'd be great if it was retroactive to earlier versions of ATV. Otherwise, AirPlay it is.
Mathew Cortez I can’t even watch movies now on the prime !!
Jeff Hurst
Sean Hussle Bet it’s the Apple TV app
