Story
Tagline
ZDNet blogger loving mobile tech and gadgets of all types.
Introduction
I have been using mobile devices since they weighed 30 pounds, and have been sharing my insights on mobile technology for almost that long. Prior to joining ZDNet, I was the Founding Editor of jkOnTheRun, a CNET Top 100 Tech Blog that was acquired by GigaOM in 2008 and is now part of that prestigious tech network. My writing has appeared in many print publications: Smartphone and Pocket PC Magazine, Information Week and Laptop Magazine to name a few. My coverage of the mobile technology sector has regularly appeared in the New York Times, Salon.com and CNN/ Fortune online. Not just a writer, I have filmed many video reviews and how-tos that have garnered well over a million viewers. I have appeared on local news segments and been interviewed by the Associated Press on mobile technology topics. Additionally, I have been podcasting about mobile technology for years.
