I'm not even angry. I'm being so sincere right now.

But I am a bit worn out from dealing with twenty-odd couriers today. And some of them were very odd/irritated/irritable/pungent. Some of them even managed to tick multiple boxes there.
Such is the life of a busy working journalist, and I guess I should at least be grateful that I am working right now.
For a start, online, where I penned some unusual internet filtering news/analysis for APCMag.com today:

Then into the print realm we travel….t3_July_mag_cover
That’s not me on the cover of Australian T3 Magazine, just in case you didn’t know what I looked like. For a start, I can afford an actual pair of pants. But I can at least appear in the “contributor” column. I guess I’ll just have to work my way up to the esteemed position of cover model — if it’s got any esteem to begin with, that is.
To be slightly more specific, I’ve contributed to the roundup of GPS systems reviewed in the July issue. Go forth to your agency of news and pick up a copy today!

And while you’re there, be sure to pick up the July issue of PC Authority Magazine, where I’ve contributed a review of the Vin Diesel-tastic Wheelman. Who said I don’t hob-nob with the Hollywood A-List? Oh yeah, that’s right. I did.
