A proper introduction...

by Aaron.Smith / July 21, 2009 9:09 AM PDT

Hi everybody! I just wanted to introduce myself to the community and let you all know a little about me...

I'm the product manager for Mac related things within CNET. I've been using VersionTracker and MacFixIt practically since they launched, so I know exactly what it means to be one of our customers. I set a high bar for our services, and I want to provide customers with a truly valuable resource that is second to none.

I've grown up on the Mac. My dad ran his freelance design business on a Mac II in the late 80's and I've been using the platform ever since. My first Mac was a Powerbook 145b (with a trackball!). One of my first jobs was supporting a small business that ran on Macs and Filemaker databases and I have used and supported Macs in various business environments. In short, I have worked on and around the Mac throughout my entire career, in addition to using them for all of my own computing needs.

A few fun facts:
+ I have a Mac mini attached to my TV at home as my media center
+ I use a MacBook Pro every day at work
+ I use a jailbroken and unlocked iPhone (gasp!)
