On this day in 2004 the lights were turned on for a small mobile tech blog for the first time. Amazingly, jkOnTheRun is still around while others have come and gone.
It’s been a wild ride in the mobile tech world over that span. We’ve seen giants like Palm fade away. We’ve seen the rise of Apple with the phenomenal success of the iPhone. Smartphones didn’t exist for the most part in 2004, and now are commonplace.
We’ve seen Microsoft rise in mobile tech, fade from the space, rise again and fade once more. HP killed an innovative new product in mere days that has a cult following and is still being used.
The mobile tech space has been crazy over the last 14 years. Through it all jkOnTheRun has covered it with a passion that has resonated with readers. I routinely hear from folks who have been regularly following jkOTR since the early days and continue to do so.
I thank you for your devotion. I am still passionate about mobile tech and will continue to cover it to the best of my ability. So, happy birthday jkOnTheRun!
