He also hasn’t given us a photo, so this is the one he gets for now until he does.

Adam Molina


Adam is a Boston-based writer you can usually find drooling over new gadgets on the internet or re-reading the Harry Potter series.

That dude in the iPhone on the right came with the template. We’ll be changing it as soon as we think of something better. Check out that fancy colorful chart of nothing, though.
