About Craig James Johnston

Craig James Johnston has been involved with technology since his high

school days at Glenwood High in Durban, South Africa, when his school was

given some Apple ][ Europluses. From that moment technology captivated

him, and he has owned, supported, evangelized, and written about it.



Craig has been involved in designing and supporting large-scale enterprise

networks with integrated email and directory services since 1989. He has

held many different IT-related positions in his career ranging from sales

support engineer to mobile architect for a 40,000-smartphone infrastructure

at a large bank.



In addition to designing and supporting mobile computing environments,

Craig co-hosts the CrackBerry.com podcast, as well as guest hosting on

other podcasts including iPhone and iPad Live podcasts. You can see Craig's

previously published work in his books Professional BlackBerry, and many

books in the My series, including My BlackBerry Curve, My Palm Pre, My Nexus





One, My DROID (first and second editions), My Motorola Atrix 4G, My BlackBerry



PlayBook, My HTC EVO 3D, and My Samsung Galaxy Nexus.

Craig also enjoys high-horsepower, high-speed vehicles and tries very hard to

keep to the speed limit while driving them.



Originally from Durban, South Africa, Craig has lived in the United Kingdom,

the San Francisco Bay Area, and New Jersey, where he now lives with his wife,

Karen, and a couple of cats.



Craig would love to hear from you. Feel free to contact Craig about your

experiences with My Google Nexus 7 and Nexus 10 at http://www.CraigsBooks.info.

All comments, suggestions, and feedback are welcome, including positive
