TAB Welcomes: Darrell Etherington

Hi folks, here’s another addition to the ongoing role call. I started writing for TAB a little over a week ago, and so far I’m really enjoying myself.
As far as I know I’m the only Canadian in the current roster, so I had to fight the strong influence of Waterloo-based Research In Motion when I purchased my 3G iPhone. If I lived an hour or so south of where I do now, that’d virtually be grounds for treason.
The first Apple I owned was an eMac, which I purchased second-hand for $500 and sold two years later for $500 (I still regret selling it at all, but at least it went to a good home). My current computers are a black MacBook purchased in early summer 2007 and a 20″ aluminum iMac I bought in late summer of this year. I use my Macs mostly for writing, but also for digital photography (Canon Rebel XT, though the new 50D has me drooling for an upgrade) and digital art (Wacom Cintiq 12WX).
My set-up and interests might give you an idea of the type of topics I’ll be covering here at TAB, but I’m always hungry for the latest news. Which means you should tweet me anytime you hear anything, but I won’t believe you if you say Apple’s bringing copy-and-paste to the iPhone.
