Things have changed a lot around Channel 9. As you may have noticed, some people have come and gone over the past year, and the team is very different from what it used to be.

3. He worked for Apple (always interesting to talk to people who've worked for Apple in some way)
4. He's met a bunch of uber famous people
5. He likes my shoes
He also worked for Engadget
