LonePlacebo is a mobile and web technology blog I started in 2010 and maintained until 2015. I covered a range of topics including the latest news and developments from companies like Apple, Facebook, and Google, and shared tips and tutorials on how to be more productive with technology.

Here's a compilation of blog posts I enjoyed writing the most (my greatest hits if you will):

My writing has also been featured on several popular blogs including Lifehacker, Kikolani, Hack College, Daily Blog Tips, and TouchMyApps.


I co-hosted (alongside my friend Joseph) a 19-episode podcast called the PlaceboCast (2013-15), where we discussed the latest tech news. Here are some of my favorite episodes.

#19: The Apple TV 4

#17: Rocky Yosemite

#13: Fresh Prince of Twitter

#3: The Samsung Galaxy S4 Circus

#2: We can finally use Mailbox!
