Peter is an avid technology fan, with a history of using Microsoft tech. PC’s dating back to Win 95 through 98, 2000, Vista, XP Windows 7 and now Windows 8 consumer preview, Windows 8 and 8.1. Mobile OS’s from Windows Mobile 2003, 2003 SE, 5, 6, 6.1 and 6.5. Moving to Windows Phone 7 in late 2010, and using it till the present day. Waiting patiently for Windows Phone 8, having to be satisfied with the leaked emulator for the moment. A brief foray into android, running it on the HTC HD2 and a stint with the HTC Desire.
Device history goes something like, Dell Axim X5, Dell Axim x51, Dell Axim x51v, HTC TYTN, HTC Diamond 2, HTC Desire, HTC HD2, HTC Mozart, HTC HD7 and the HTC Titan 4G, HTC 8X, Nokia Lumia 1020 and Nokia Lumia 1320.
Blogging came about during the Axim/Windows Mobile days, starting on sites like Axim Users Dot Com, and the now defunct Axim/Mobility site. Peter then went on to write for justanothermobilemonday.com, with a huge amount of posts, over 500 for the site.
In 2009, a friend offered Peter space on a shared server for free and Peterskitchen came about. Why Kitchen? a vague reference to Windows Mobile ROM building, and the kitchens it is done in, and the fact that Peter is a chef in real life.
