Hi! I'm Josiah Oakley and I am absolutely in love with Apple products, applications, and technology in general. For the last 3 years I produced a web show called Mac Tips & Tricks. This web show reviews applications and various tips for Mac. It is widely popular and I am excited to write about Mac apps for AppStorm. I also have a practical approach to any review or article. You can also find some of my work on YouTube @ talkingmac or follow me on Twitter @jooak
