Alfonso Maruccia is a News Reporter for TechSpot. Alfonso has spent the last 18 years writing about computers, technology, video games, science, and everything in between. Before writing about technology, he spent part of his youth with arcade games and working in different computer shops. He also wrote some short stories, 10 of which were collected in his first self-published book. When he isn't chasing the latest digital unicorn or trying to browse yet another obscure, long-extinct emulation website on the Internet Archive, Alfonso likes to read paper books, think about his first novel, and ride a mountain bike -- only when it's very hot outside, though.
