September has been a huge month for the technology industry – in one month Nokia has been eaten up by Microsoft, the Blackberry has started to rot, fingerprints have suddenly become important, and Los Santos has become the number one getaway destination for gamers everywhere.
And now there’s one more piece of earth-shattering news: Me, James O’Malley.
I’m the new Editor of Tech Digest, and I’ll be attempting to fill Gerald’s rather large and intimidating shoes. I’m not entirely unknown around these parts – long term readers may remember that I wrote some bits and pieces way back in 2008.
You remember, 2008, right? There was a new Grand Theft Auto game taking the world by storm, and Microsoft’s latest operating system (Windows Vista) was almost universally reviled by anyone who actually had to use it. I know what you’re thinking – how can we even begin to relate to that today?
So let me tell you a bit about myself – I’m essentially someone is addicted to technology. I’m the sort of person who if the broadband goes down, I’m getting anxiety attacks after about ten minutes because I’m not sure it’s possible to live without knowing what Twitter is angry about today.
So what am I going to be doing at TechDigest? Hopefully I’ll be continuing with what we’re best at – covering the latest tech news, giving you an insight into the best apps, gadgets and games, and providing commentary on what is going on, and what it all means.
I’ll also be doing bits and pieces for our sister website Shiny Shiny.
So let’s see how I do – if you like you can follow me on Twitter @Psythor (you’re already following @TechDigestNews, right?), and I’d love to hear from readers about what they’d like to see on the website!
