When Om Malik asked for my input on a piece he was doing on our network’s favorite blogs, it was easy to give him my pick. Through my love affair with Windows Mobile, BlackBerry and now iPhone, jkOnTheRun has been a constant in my feed reader. I love the site because while it’s all about mobile gadgets and gear, their focus is on the end user and where the products fits in the real world.
This evening, Om announced that jkOnTheRun is now a GigaOm blog!
I am pleased to announce that Giga Omni Media, the company behind GigaOM, has acquired jkOnTheRun, a blog started by James Kendrick and Kevin Tofel that focuses on the wonderful world of mobile gadgets, including mobile phones and cloud client computers. James and Kevin will join GigaOM, but will continue to work from their respective homes of Houston and Telford, Pa., and jkOnTheRun will become the sixth blog in the GigaOM Network.
Look for more crossover between our sites in the weeks and months to come.
Welcome to the family, James & Kevin!
