I’m a geek at the core, though it wasn’t until a few years ago that I showed myself to the world as such. You can also call me Captain Obvious: there’s an abundance of applications available on the web today. It’s a tough job, but I try to get the good the bad and the truth out of them, whether their makers like it or not. For the readers.

Among my awesome powers is the ability to translate boisterously worded software features into layman terms anyone can easily understand. I cover news about new releases to this purpose. Should a program be worthy of closer scrutiny, I put in balance its weaknesses and strong points to reveal its true nature.

Hobbies include the geeky stuff you’d expect, plus movies, games and everything that might be covered under the umbrella of "fun".
