So long, and thanks…



It is hard to imagine that I’ve written and contributed to more than 450 posts during the nearly two-year tour of duty with all the rest of the Cultists at Cult of Mac.

I’ve served up news, break fixes, tips, opinions, etc. to more users than I ever could have imagined, and I’m grateful that I had the opportunity to do so. I have always been greatly humbled by your reader responses and surprised by a few too. I have had an amazing time meeting some really great people along the way.

I’ve accepted a job offer with a new start-up, which will take me in new directions and adventures in blogging. However, I’ll never be far from where my heart is. I’ll still be deep into all things Apple. I’ll always be a part of the Cult of Mac just like all of you.

If you would like to stay in touch, please follow me on Twitter or visit my personal website for updates on my next project or big adventure.

It is designed with an intuitive user interface to make application development easier using a language that uses an understandable English-like syntax. You can use it to create your own iOS apps.
