“When writing an article for Lifewire I always try to put myself in the reader’s shoes, no matter the topic. Although advancements in technology continue to enrich our lives, understanding how to get the most out of the latest apps, gadgets and other products isn’t always as simple and convenient as we’d like it to be. It’s my job to eliminate any uncertainty and make things as easy as possible for our readers so they can get what they need and get on with their day.”
