Hey there, my name is Nate Boateng (pronounced bwä-ten). I’ve been a technology geek as long as I can remember. I’m married to a wonderful woman, have two sons, and a slew of pets, and live in eastern Pennsylvania. I have an overly strong addiction to coffee{: data-link-type=”external” target=”_blank”} and love writing when I’m not working my full-time job. My passions include gadgets, apps, media and how we use them to connect with each other. There are three important things to note about this site: I am not a professional writer. I have an opinion. I do this for fun.
