Welcome to the official site of Jason Jenkins – journalist, editor, chocoholic and tech enthusiast. If I’m honest, there aren’t any unofficial Jason Jenkins sites, but it sounded like a good way to start.
I am currently the Editor of CNET UK, the world’s best website dedicated to technology. No, really it is, it has won an AOP award! As Editor, I am responsible for all the content on the site and I spend most of the day glued to a screen to make sure the amazing CNET UK team produce the best in the business.
I have been a journalist for over ten years, writing and presenting for a wide variety of magazines, newspapers and websites. Most of my professional career has been dedicated to covering technology, and I have tested just about every major gadget in the past decade. I remember how excited my old boss was when he received the very first computer with a 1GHz chip in it to review. Now you can buy a phone with a faster processor than that. Progress, eh?
During this time, I have popped up on all of the major news programmes offering expert comment, including Newsnight, BBC Breakfast, Sky News, ITV News and the World Service.
At the moment I am particularly fond of the Kindle and the iPad and I’m fascinated by the way tablets are transforming how people interact with technology.
A little-known fact about me is that my very first journalist gig was reviewing Angels by Robbie Williams. The gist of my review was “it’s very good, if you can ignore the fact it’s Robbie Williams singing”. Thankfully, my writing has improved since then.
