The OSXDaily Writing Team
Our authors, regular contributors, and writers have deep knowledge of the subject matter combined with a huge passion for Apple products. While we’re not big on parading egos around here, our past and present writers and alumni are listed below in no particular order:
- Paul Horowitz – Paul is the managing editor of OSXDaily.com, setting the editorial direction, writing tutorials, covering important news about Apple, and managing most other tasks related to the websites functionality. An expert on all things Apple and a lifelong Mac user, Paul has over 25 years experience using Apple products, starting with the Apple II! Paul has been writing for OSXDaily since the earliest days in 2006 and his work has received mentions from CNET, Loop Insight, John Gruber of Daringfireball, Techmeme, The Daily Mail, Cult of Mac, Lifehacker, and many more popular publications. If you send us an email, tweet, or post to our social channels, chances are good that Paul is going to be the person you’re talking to!
- Matt Chan – Matt is a thoroughbred geek who loves tweaking the iPhone and Mac. Matt covered a lot of Apple related news, and appeared on TechMeme for a variety of stories while covering news, which he is pretty stoked about!
- Keir Thomas – Keir Thomas is the award-winning author of Mac Kung Fu and Ubuntu Kung Fu, and has been uncovering secrets of operating systems and computer hardware for nearly two decades. Formerly a computer magazine journalist and editor, he now focuses primarily on the Mac, iOS, and Ubuntu Linux. Keir Thomas has been published by O’Reilly, MacWorld, PC World, and many other leading publications. You can learn more about Keir and his accomplishments here on his home page.
- AJ Ryan – AJ is a web developer by trade and all around geek. Also a lifelong Mac user and early Apple adopter with a drawer full of iPhones, and a few too many Macs (is there really such a thing?).
- Bill Ellis – Bill is a Mac-centric IT professional and software engineer from Seattle, Washington.
- William Pearson – A longtime Apple geek with immense interest in technology, William studied everything he possibly could for as long as humanly possible. Ok that’s sort of a joke, but Will does love to learn, which is pretty typical for an engineer, right?
- David Mendez – David has been using Macs since they were first announced. A Mac loving Systems Consultant, we never quite know where he is located since he’s traveling so often. Last we heard, he was in the UK, or maybe it was New York. David was the first to report that Apple was actively axing support for the Intel Atom processor, which sort of put the lid on the whole Hackintosh netbook thing (remember that?), which happened not long before the release of the now very popular MacBook Air – he even got on Techmeme for it, which is a major tech writer bragging right!
- Manish Patel – Manish is an IT Professional who spreads his time between Anaheim, California and Bangalore, India.
- Readers Like You! – Tips are often suggested by and submitted to us through email (OSXDaily.email@example.com) from users like you. So if you think we should cover something, or maybe you found a great trick that we haven’t written about yet, let us know! If we think our readers will find it useful, it will probably get posted, so send your tips to us!
