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.

Adam Jackson - Macworld 2009I was a PC for the longest time. In the late 90s Apple caught my attention as Macs were all we had in grade school. Then, in 2001, the iBook G3 was released, then iTunes and then the iPod. After spending an hour on Mac OS X 10.1, I was hooked and decided it was time to switch to Mac. Soon after switching, I started blogging about Apple but given that I was only 13 years old, the content was less than readable. That didn’t stop me from writing about Apple nearly every day.

In 2003, I attended my first Macworld and attended every expo from NYC, Boston and San Francisco until the most recent MWSF in January. I became a total conference junkie and even found myself at CES and Photoshop World finally earning the grand invitation and attending Apple Town Hall events and WWDC as press. All the while, I was a lone blogger with a passion for spreading the word about Apple and its products.

Today, at the ripe old age of 23 I’ve seen Steve Jobs speak nearly 30 times, have written over 5,000 articles and reviews about Apple and was even interviewed in the movie MacHeads which premiered last year. It’s safe to say that I am a Mac head and I’m happy to be joining the TAB team as a contributor among the ranks great writers like Darrell Etherington, Charles Jade and Nick Santilli.

I enjoy writing editorials that excite readers and inspire others to give their thoughts. When I’m not writing, I enjoy taking photographs, tweeting and blogging about food & life.

  1. Looks like TAB scored bringing you on board, but since you’re so young I must hate you. Nothing personal, but life moves too fast for anything but knee-jerk reactions these days.

    :-)

    Ok, ok, I’ll wait for a few articles from you and decide for myself. Happy now?

    THEN I’ll hate you. :)

    1. Hi Tom. Thanks for the comment. Yep, it’s okay to hate me now or later as I agree that it’s the content and not my resume that truly shows what I can bring to the site. We’ll see and I hope you’ll give me both criticisms and constructive feedback on how I can improve. It’s a pleasure to be here.

    1. Hi Rob. I’ve appreciated your support since we met in early 2002. It’s really nice to see your comment. You’re a great friend both on and offline.

  3. I’ve meet Adam a couple of times. WWDC, and iPhone Dev Camp 1. Seems like good guy, and bright. I look forward to reading his contributions.

    Extra points for being a Nikon guy if I recall.

    1. Really? What’s your Twitter name? I try to remember everyone but “peltedv” isn’t ringing any bells. Thanks for the warm welcome.

      Oh and sorry, I’m a Canon guy. I’m not skilled enough to measure the two brands side by side, it’s only because most of my friends use Canon setups, which saves me tons of money when I need to try lenses.

  4. Hey Adam, great to have you aboard!

    Clearly you’re mislead with the shoutout, but it’s appreciated anyway. :)
