Tech expert Michelle Thatcher grew up surrounded by gadgets and sustained by Tex-Mex cuisine. Life in two major cities--first Chicago, then San Francisco--broadened her culinary horizons beyond meat and cheese, and she's since enjoyed nearly a decade of wining, dining, and cooking up and down the California coast. Though her gadget lust remains, the practicalities of her small kitchen dictate that single-function geegaws never stay around for long.

PC World Editor in Chief Harry McCracken has announced that he will leave the magazine after 14 years. His last day will be June 2.

"I've decided to step down as editor in chief and launch a technology site of my own--one that I'll build from scratch and launch this summer," McCracken wrote on his blog. He told media publication MinOnline that the new venture would give him more hands-on time with tech products, but gave no further details.

The announcement comes just over a year after McCracken resigned his post in a dispute with management over stories that were critical of advertisers. He returned to the job after one week.
