Jim Tanous - About
Hi there! My name is Jim Tanous, a writer, husband, and father living in Erie, Pennsylvania. I run TekRevue, a website featuring tips, reviews, and news related to OS X, Windows, iOS, and gaming.
Born and raised in Buffalo, New York, I remain a dedicated fan of the Buffalo Sabres and Buffalo Bills, despite having lived in Nashville, Cincinnati, and Washington, D.C. over the past decade. I'm also a huge Star Trek nerd and can't wait to see what J.J. Abrams does with Star Wars. When not playing around with the latest hardware and apps, you can likely find me taking pictures around town or mashing buttons in NHL 15, all while listening to podcasts via
Instacast (unfortunately, the company that made Instacast folded in June 2015; I now use Pocket Casts for my podcast needs) or one of the books from my absurdly large Audible audiobook collection.
Take a look at links to some of my websites and projects below.
My day-to-day job since early 2013, providing readers with tips, product reviews, and news covering all things Windows, Mac, mobile, and gaming.
The Mac Observer
I wrote exclusively for The Mac Observer, one of the oldest continually operating Apple-focused websites, in 2011 and 2012. I now contribute tips from the Mac Geek Gab podcast.
Prentice Family Foundation
I work with a private foundation that aims to support the Western New York economy via scholarships to entrepreneurial-minded students and direct investments in private companies.
