"I remember watching an old Star Trek: Next Generation on television a few days after I bought the original iPad, and I was struck by how similar the device Captain Picard was holding in his hand and manipulating with his fingers was to my brand new iPad. It's always amazing when technology catches up with science fiction.
"Over the years of writing about technology, I am most proud of the emails and messages I receive from people who have read one of my articles and were able to fix a problem with their smartphone or feel more confident buying a particular device."
