Paul Trotter is Head of Mobile and Chief Content Officer at IDG, the world’s largest technology publishing company. Paul has been writing about the consumer and business IT industries for 15 years. He worked for PC Advisor as both Editor and Editor in Chief, and has developed an unhealthy interest in smartphone and tablet technologies. Traditionally a cynic of all things Apple, he conveniently ignores the fact that he carries an iPad, iPhone and iPod with him every day.
