  • More new blood...
    Hey guys, my name is Paul Daniel Ash and I'll be joining Michael Essany as a staff writer here at ModMyi. It's an exciting time to be coming on board and I look forward to thrashing over issues in the Apple/Mac/iPhone world with you all.

    I had a startup Mac VAR in San Francisco back in 1987, and got Apple Systems Engineer status in '88. We were able to get some of the very first Macs on corporate desktops back in the day... people whose PCs had just been enormous paperweights became productive computer users for the first time thanks to the Mac (Windows for Workgroups, anyone?). Took a ride on the NeXT train while it lasted, and then moved into the Linux world, but I always had a Mac at home. I was overjoyed the first time I was able to see a bash prompt on my Mac clone.

    It's an interesting time for the Mac and iPhone world... and whether we see an iTablet this year or not, I think the trend is moving towards handheld and multitouch. So it'll be very exciting to see the development of real portable touchscreen computing on platforms with an open - or openable ;-) - operating system.

    Anyway, great to be with you. Kudos are always appreciated, but criticism is always of value.
