❱❱ Who Am I? What Is This?!


My name is JR Raphael, and I’ve been writing about Android — and Google’s own self-made smartphones — since the start. I’ve also been using that stuff in my own personal life all this time, and I’ve got lots of useful knowledge I love to share about it.

I write a column called Android Intelligence that appears in Computerworld as well as a newsletter called Android Intelligence that appears in many an Android enthusiast’s inbox. I also write feature stories about productivity for Fast Company. Occasionally, I sleep.
