I was a PC for the longest time. In the late 90s Apple caught my attention as Macs were all we had in grade school. After spending an hour on Mac OS X 10.1, I was hooked and decided it was time to switch to Mac.

At home, I fancy myself an amateur photographer with a decent array of prosumer Canon products. I take on average 25K photos annually and spend a good amount of time organizing, printing and getting creative with the image library I have managed to create.

My first Apple device was an iPod Nano, second-gen, and using it was a revelation; the simplicity of the click-wheel and the solid industrial design wowed me. My second Apple device was an iPod touch, also a second-gen and also a revelation; interacting with a touchscreen was completely new to me, and iPhone OS was a dream to use.

New Skin: TheAppleBlog Redesigns

It’s been many months in the making, but this evening we launched an entire overhaul of TheAppleBlog’s design. This redesign is part of an overhaul of the entire GigaOM network that started back in November.

TAB Welcomes: Josh Sunshine

I’d like to begin by telling you that there isn’t a single thing I haven’t heard said about my name. So, that said, here’s what you’d find written if I had a Wikipedia page:

  • Yes, I do look small in that photo. That’s because I’m only 16 (and the photo has been resized).
  • In regard to #1, I know more than you might expect about computing*.
  • I write from my house which is tucked away in the South-East corner of England, so expect posts which seem to have been written in the middle of the night.
  • This is my first proper move into the world of tech writing, so I dare say you’ve never heard of me before.
  • I first switched in 2007 with the receipt of my 20″ iMac, which I still have today.
  • If you visited me, you’d find the iMac, a late-2008 MacBook, two iPhone 3GSs and two iPod touches (2nd generation).

I’m joining TheAppleBlog as the newest How-To and tutorial writer. Look out for my series of ‘Quick Tips’ which will hopefully teach you something useful in a short amount of time. I’m open to feedback, argument, insult etc. in the comments area of my posts, so chatter away.

If you have trouble sleeping at night, try reading my stream of dullness that is @jobbogamer on Twitter.

Call for iPhone & Mac Developers/Writers

TheAppleBlog is looking for a few iPhone and Mac developers who are also writers to help us out. So, if you are a solid iPhone and/or Mac developer and like to write how-to’s, tutorials, etc., I’d love to chat with you.

Please note, this is not a call for writers in general, it’s only for iPhone/Mac developers.

So, if you’re interested, just fill out this form with some examples of your developer-based how-to’s/tutorials and we’ll go from there.

Live Coverage of Apple’s January 27 Media Event

Tomorrow morning at 10AM PST Apple will be holding its “Latest Creation” Media Event. TheAppleBlog will be there providing you a steady stream of updates on everything announced.

You can get your live coverage fix via two methods tomorrow.

TheAppleBlog Live — This is the fastest way to get updates and the most interactive. In addition to our own updates (with text and photos), you can send in a comment/thought/observation and if we feel it’s relevant, we’ll post it for the thousands of others reading the updates. Our coverage will start around an hour before the event begins.

TheAppleBlog Twitter — We’ll be tweeting updates here, so be sure to follow@theappleblog.

Welcome to the New WebWorkerDaily

If you’re reading this post in your newsreader, I strongly advise you to head over to the site and read it there instead, because I’m very pleased to use this post to introduce WebWorkerDaily’s redesign.
