This is a list of articles / other media work I’ve done as a freelance journalist during October, November and December 2010. I intend to continue writing freelance articles and do more radio interviews in the future. They will be linked to on a regular basis.
Product Launches & Events
GEARE Magazine online – Windows Phone 7: Yay or Meh? – I provide my first impressions of the Windows Phone 7 mobile operating system
GEARE Magazine online – Google Maps nav goes free – Google Maps turn-by-turn navigation is finally free on Android for Australia & NZ
Reviews & Analysis
Interviewed on ABC Radio National Future Tense about privacy issues related to smartphone GPS apps, location sharing and commercial use of that data
A somewhat rambling article by me regarding ABC iView and Online Evolution: Technology & Strategies to Meet Changing Audience Needs was published on the new ABC Tech and Games website.
Print Media Articles
Issue 64 of GEARE magazine is now at Australian newsagents. Several of my stories are featured on the front cover and over 20 pages of the magazine are written by me which is the most I’ve written for a single print media issue
Topics include long feature articles about Electric cars and Ebooks as well as reviews of Android tablets, looking back at 20 years of the Hubble Space Telescope, the Windows Phone 7 launch and Budget Digital Cameras reviewed.
Here’s a sneak mini preview of what my articles in GEARE 64 look like … you’ll have to buy a copy from a Newsagent if you want to read them
Who could have guessed that I would progress so far and fast as a freelance journalist considering my first paid freelance technology article for APCMAG online was written barely a year ago.
I often have good ideas for articles that don’t fit the audience of my blogs or deserve a bigger audience so I’ve decided to pitch those ideas to various other publications.
These articles will mostly be categorised as Reviews, Product Launches & Events or Public Interest/Consumer protection. Please contact me by email if you have a good idea for an article I could write in 1 of those categories.
