This is the personal blog of Tony Smith, formerly a senior editor on the hugely popular British technology newssite The Register. Tony is based in London from where he has been writing about information technology and consumer electronics for more than 30 years. During that time he has worked on many of the UK’s best known computing titles – among them MicroScope, MacUser, Personal Computer World and Computer Shopper – appeared on CNN and the BBC, and written for The Times, The Sunday Times, The Guardian and The Independent.
Tony is currently a Developer Educator at cloud communications colossus Twilio, but what he writes here is entirely his own affair.
