Distro 107 with Phil Nickinson

Learn a little of what makes an AC Editor-in-chief tick

This week's Distro, a contemporary tech publication put out by the folks at Engadget, is one you'll not want to miss. Tucked away along with the reviews, editorials and news of the week is an interview with a man we all know and love (mostly) -- our own Phil Nickinson.

Available as a .pdf file or in popular book stores like iTunes and the Kindle store as well as having a nicely done Android app, Distro is something you'll probably be wanting to read each week anyway if you're not already. But this week is just a little extra special. Learn more at the source link, and you can grab the app at the Google Play link above.

Enjoyed the article, however "booze" should've been the #1 technological innovation! =)

What makes Phil tick? I would guess his cutey pie daughter, his pretty wife and Krispy Kreme doughnuts, not necessarily in that order...

If you go to the PDF, Phil starts on page 66. (to get there faster...)

Did Engadget tell you they were going to change that pic when they put it on their website for Friday the 13th? Looks like Jason is about to slice you up in their pic. Very creepy.

Love the article, btw.

Why are people hating Phil? I usually don't pay attention to posts and web politics, but why so many hate Phil on Engadget so much?

I just downloaded the PDF from the source link.

First, booze should have been the first on the list.

Next, at least sense is pretty good, Samsung should have taken its place somewhere on there
