Stephen has been covering Apple and Google for four years. He can be often found on the leaderboard of technology news curation website Techmeme, and has been cited by many major publications across the web including Wired, Re/code, Business Insider, CNET, BuzzFeed News, Computerworld, TechCrunchGigaOmPC World, PC Magazine, as well as newspapers like The Wall Street Journal and USA Today.

Stephen’s first big story came in September 2014 when he exclusively published all of the details of Google’s unreleased Motorola-made Nexus 6 smartphone weeks before it was announced.

For several years he closely followed Google Glass and published extensive coverage of the product’s roadmap in early 2015 followed by several scoops revealing details about the forthcoming “Enterprise Edition” hardware in July, as well as Google’s plans for its distribution. These reports were confirmed when Stephen reported in late 2015 that the device had finally surfaced on the FCC website. He was also the first to report that one unit of the new device surfaced on eBay.

In September of 2015, Stephen published details of Google’s forthcoming 2nd generation Chromecast and Chromecast Audio products, as well as details on their companion application. He also exclusively reported on Google’s plan to finally bring Spotify support to the Chromecast.

In December of 2015, Stephen reported that Huawei planned to introduce women’s versions of its forthcoming Huawei Watch at CES 2016, as well as that Google was planning to introduce the gold variant of the Nexus 6P in the United States and begin selling the phone through Best Buy and other online retailers. The women’s Huawei Watch launched at CES 2016, and reports surfaced in 2017 corroborating Stephen’s reports of an LTE Huawei Watch in the works.

In March of 2016, Stephen exclusively reported that Tesla had at one point tested Google Glass in its Fremont, California factory, but had since moved to Vuzix hardware. He then published videos proving conclusively that Tesla had tested Glass.

Later in April of 2016, when Google’s Regina Dugan left the company to start an experimental hardware division at Facebook, Stephen detailed the story of her polarizing first meeting at Google. He also reported in 2016 that “Andromeda” an as-of-yet unannounced software project by Google, would launch on a Chromebook “Pixel”-like laptop and a Huawei-made tablet. He published more details about this project in November of 2016.
