I have more gadgets than I can keep track of, but there are a few products I use more than others. My Galaxy Z Fold3 has become one of my favorite productivity tools, allowing me to check my calendar, reply to emails, or view the latest press conferences without needing to break out a magnifying glass. It’s also great for playing a bit of Old School RuneScape.
Travel has become a large part of my life, and my Acer Nitro 5 laptop comes with me wherever I go (along with my beloved Nintendo Switch). At home, I’ve got both an Xbox Series S and PlayStation 5, plus an Oculus Quest for the odd VR game.
Jon received a Bachelor's Degree in Biology from North Central College. He was also a member of the College Scholar program, which saw him complete an Honor's Thesis examining the impact of ocean acidification on aquatic communities. He also has a few Master's courses under his belt and enjoys learning about how science and technology are changing the world around us.
Regardless of profession or location, technology plays a massive role in our lives. Understanding its impact, and where it’s heading in the future, is more important than ever.
