Benj Writes History at How-To Geek

April 15th, 2020 by Benj Edwards

Back in February, I landed a full-time job at How-To Geek as a Staff Writer. It’s been a great gig, and I am enjoying helping people with tricky (and sometimes very simple) tech problems.

I’ve written a lot about iPhone, iPad, Mac, Windows 10, and the Nintendo Switch so far, but HTG also lets me do a history feature about once a week. That way I can keep flexing my tech nostalgia muscles. Here are the history pieces I’ve done so far:

Expect much more where that came from, so keep an eye on my How-To Geek page, and you’ll see new ones pop up from time to time.

I hope everybody out there is doing well.ย  This blog isn’t dead yet — I still plan to post some more Retro Scans some day.

    For one of your articles there, I still can’t get the split screen working on my macbook air running 10.11.6. When I control-click the green window button in the top left, I don’t get any options.

    Sorry to post this here, but the comments on the thread where you wrote it sure seemed to close quickly.

    Thoughts? You have my email if you so choose. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Great variety of material there if anyone has not gone to check it out yet.
