Kinda sorta maybe barely almost internet famous

Okay, not really at all but I couldn’t think of a better title.

While I was lounging on the beach in Hawaii recently, two separate articles in which I was interviewed for appeared online (and possibly in dead tree form too – I actually don’t know).

The first one was for the UBC Thunderbird Newspaper and was about the environmental impacts of all the technology being consumed by folks like yours truly. I guess I come across as a big Apple fanboy (big surprise) that recycles my gadgets but I’m not 42 (37 as of this moment) and I don’t claim to be the first in Canada with an iPhone – just one of the first to bring one into Canada (within days of it’s release in the US) as well as one of the first to unlock it to use as a phone in Canada on Rogers. UPDATE: Allison updated the article.

The second one was about waiting for the iPhone in Canada and hacking it written by fellow geek and iPhone hacker, Warren Frey that appeared in Mac|Life.

I’ll leave it to you decide how I come across in these kinds of things but they are fun to do and I’m honored people are interested in my thoughts on stuff.

    Cool! You deserve the ‘press’… to think I’d still have a Nokia if it weren’t for you :-)

  2. Dave Zille says:

    “John Biehler really likes Apple products.”

    — Couldn’t have said it better myself!

  3. Allison Cross says:

    Hey John. I corrected your age and the detail about the iPhone. Sorry bout that! Thanks for reading….

  4. John says:

    Thanks Allison! I’ve updated my post too.

  5. Raul says:

    Well, John – truth be told, you DO have very valuable insights. You know that I’m not an Apple user, but you’ve certainly offered a lot of really valuable advice to me, so I am glad that other people are also getting to hear/read your thoughts on these things.

    And of course, needless to say, I was thrilled to hear that you were speaking about environmental consequences of geeky gadgets :)
