Jon Martindale began his technological education bashing the surprisingly resilient keys of a BBC Micro in the late '80s. He hand-built his first LED-festooned Windows XP gaming PC in his early teens, and has been a tech journalist for all of his working career. He's written a number of in-depth features, hundreds of reviews, and thousands of news articles, and now heads up the living articles team in Digital Trends Computing section, making sure all the guides are as up to date and accurate as possible.
Jon has also authored two novels and provided back story and dialogue for a handful of games.
When he's not digging into the latest developments in ransomware, cryptojacking, and biometrics, Jon continues to wear his nerd heart on his sleeve, enjoying comics, board games, and model painting.
