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.

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.
