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.

* Contrary to popular belief, not all teenagers sit on MSN and Facebook all day long.

  1. Aha, more Englanders. That’s what we like to see. That means that when I get in to work at a respectable English 8:00am, I won’t have to wait too long to read something from one of the multitude of Apple/Tech blogs I subscribe to. Once, that is, I’ve finished reading all the ones those crazy A-mericans wrote in the middle of the night (oh, and the odd crazy Aussie).

    Cup of Tea, anyone? Whilst watching people walking past on the pavement, getting things out of their car boots and maybe popping their car keys in their trousers (anyone spot the deliberate Englishisms, lol).

    1. Of course, the only problem is that I don’t decide when things are posted – they won’t be at a ‘respectable English’ time, I’m afraid!
      And what’s wrong with Aussies?

    2. Lol, is that cos of the crazy A-merican editors, lol? And nothing wrong with Aussies – I like them. I especially like their attitude to beer and women (oh, and barbecues). I also wish we had their climate (minus the bush fires). Mind you, at least our climate isn’t as bad as the Welsh.

      I’m getting the distinct impression I’ve gone off track, lol. Did I forget to say “Welcome, young’un”, lol. ;)

  3. Hi Josh looking forward to reading your words and laughing at your humor (you do have humor right?!). Welcome either way:-)

    1. I’m not entirely sure how much humour you can squeeze into tutorial posts, but I can try!

  4. With a name like that, have you ever considered becoming a television weatherman? :-)

    1. But then what would happen when I predicted rain? ;)

  5. Great! I love tutorials and how-to’s, I’m always eager for new ways of improving my Mac OS Xperience. Looking forward to your posts.

  6. On Twitter you remarked, “Expect to learn stuff soon, inc. AVI on iPhone, 2x-click home button, and more!”

    I’ve been reading The Missing Manual for iPhone by David Pogue, so know the 2x-click home button, but I sure hope you can take us beyond TMM with new bits of info! Your intro post is delightful, as are your tweets, so I’m looking forward to more, and to learning from you.

  7. Hi Josh, great to see a “fellow” teenager posting on a blog like this! (I’m also 16) Looking forward to reading your posts.
