When a coy modeling photo of Jessica Chobot licking the Sony PSP appeared online, she became an overnight internet sensation. Fondling the PSP turned out to be a genius career move for Jessica Chobot, and it didn't take long for her to abandon her modeling career in favor of the other opportunities that were opening up for her in video game and entertainment journalism. The anime-obsessed Chobot, who goes by the gamer handle The Baroness, has contributed to FHM UK, Mania.com, and has appeared numerous times on G4's "Filter" and "Attack of the Show." She also hosted a video game preview segment for Fuel TV’s “The Daily Habit.” In 2006, IGN hired Chobot to host the network's IGN Weekly show, where she appears in both studio segments and "on-the-street" pieces. She also currently writes for the IGN website, and her blog is one of the most popular on the site. She is a weekly guest on Maxim Radio, where she answers caller questions for an hour every Monday. As if all that's not enough, she is currently penning a script with TRON writer Steven Lisberger, titled Soul Code and slated for release in 2009.
Born in Toronto, Canada, Morgan Webb’s prowess within the tech sector has become legendary over the last few years, hence her inclusion as one of the hottest women in tech. She got a job as a website administrator straight out of college and followed that up with a stint as a producer and web researcher on TechTV’s The Screen Savers program. Morgan’s girl-next-door looks and bubbly personality quickly led to recurring on-air appearances as one of the show’s computer experts, and because of her increasing popularity with viewers it wasn’t long before Morgan was being asked to guest host the series on select occasions. She landed a gig as cohost of TechTV’s X-Play series, and parlayed her burgeoning success into a stint as a video-game columnist for FHM magazine. Morgan can currently be seen videoblogging on a daily basis for WebbAlert, where she runs down the most prominent and interesting tech-related tidbits of the moment.
Amber MacArthur’s background within the tech sector -- she has worked for Microsoft and Razorfish, among others -- has resulted in the kind of credibility many of her contemporaries would kill for, and it’s hard to imagine a more ideal candidate for our hottest women in tech list. Although she got her start as a reporter on Canada’s CBC, Amber first came to our attention during her stint as the cohost of G4TechTV Canada’s Call for Help. Amber also played a substantial role on the network's other shows, including Gadgets and Gizmos and Torrent, and became known for a weekly vidcast called "commandN." Amber can currently be seen on Toronto’s CityTV news broadcast, where she functions as the station’s new-media specialist. At any rate, Amber can’t help but come off as that rare beauty who’s as smart as she is attractive.
