Introduction

Gordon Kelly is a London, UK based writer and journalist specialising in technology. He works freelance for the BBC, Mens' Health, Stuff, Wired, TrustedReviews and the Scotsman, amongst others. He is also a professional copywriter whose clients include TomTom, SanDisk and Qualcomm.

Gordon began his career at VNU (now Incisive Media) as a Reporter on industry title Computer Reseller News (CRN). During his time there Gordon was promoted to Senior Reporter and featured in the Press Gazette (the industry paper for journalists nationwide) for his investigations into distributors' anti-competitive behaviour. He was also ranked amongst the top four most influential IT journalists in the country.

In the spare time he has Gordon is a film buff, guitarist and keen sports motorbike rider. He is also writing on a novel which has garnered interest from a number of publishing heavyweights as well as the BBC.

Academically Gordon attained a First Class Bachelor of Arts degree in English Literature from the University of Essex and a Master of Arts in American Studies (specialising in literature and politics) from the University of Nottingham.

Trivia about Gordon: he loves the city but was brought up riding horses in the countryside, suffers the horrors of supporting Newcastle United and never tires of being asked: "But you don't have a Geordie accent?"

Depends entirely who you get. Lock smith servicers know what they're talking about and solved problem the customer facing staff had been befuddled with for about 20 minutes. In no time lock smith had picked the right form I needed (I had been given the wrong one) and told the customer facing staff member what he needed to do (3x!) the latter came back and asked who I was and if I needed assistance! So one guy was brilliant and professional but he admitted the customer facing staff don't have a clue! My tip: go straight to the guys who actually do the jobs, not the sales people.
