Hello.

My name is JR Raphael. (But you can just call me JR Raphael.) I am a writer as well as a mammal. I’m the guy behind Android Intelligence and also the guy behind a suspiciously shiny computer screen. I write humor-infused feature stories for a variety of publications and drink fruit-infused beverages from a variety of glasses. At night, I sleep.

You can find my latest published works below — or, for the full experience, sign yourself up for my calorie-packed Android Intelligence newsletter. It brings all my latest material to your inbox every Friday, along with original thoughts, tips, and other goodies that don’t appear anywhere else. And it has 97% of your daily recommended fat intake, so it’s pretty much guaranteed to leave you feeling full and greasy.

Thanks for stopping by. Now, where were we? Oh, right — the stories. Here you go:
