Chris Johnson is one of those early adopters who will wait in line for hours for a new tech gadget. His web store, BiteMyApple, is geared toward other early adopters by making Kickstarter funded tech gadgets easily available. 

Name/Title: Chris Johnson, Founder of BiteMyApple.co

Launch Date: 2011

Inspiration for opening: I stood in line for three hours when Apple launched the first generation iPhone.  At that moment, I knew that Apple had something special, and I wanted to be a part its success.  So, I decided to start a business that sells iPhone accessories where I could share my favorite products with consumers.

Merchandise source: Almost everything comes directly from the manufacturers of the successful Kickstarter products.

Best selling item: Right now it's the MOS "Magnetic Organization System". It's one of those "Why didn't I think of this?" products for your desktop. Who likes cables falling of your desk?  This is so simple it's genius.

Your favorite item: I would say the Snooze because I use it every day- and the Olloclip because it helps me take a better picture.

Your favorite store (other than your own): I'm not your typical geek but if I'm anywhere near a Best Buy I have to make that stop.
