With a forthcoming book about Apple, Microsoft, Google, "and the battle for the Internet", Charles Arthur has cemented himself as one of the UK's foremost technology commentators. As the Guardian's technology editor, he's often first to news of new tech developments, and just as often a source of spot-on analysis of same. Interacts frequently with his followers, and has been known to depart from his specialist subject, in tweets such as: "Frankly, if the London Olympics opening ceremony doesn't use the Thunderbirds theme, I'm going to be mightily disappointed."
