I'm Tim Bradshaw, a tech reporter at the Financial Times in San Francisco.
I cover news, innovations, deals and trends in Silicon Valley, with a particular interest in the smartphone world and hardware startups. My beat companies include Apple, Twitter and Yahoo.
I write for the newspaper and FT.com, as well as the FT Tech Blog.
I moved to the SF Bay Area in June 2012 after four years as the FT's digital media correspondent in London. I've been covering technology for almost 10 years now.

One of the greatest threats we face is, simply put, bullshit. We are drowning it. We are drowning in partisan rhetoric that is just true enough not to be a lie; in industry-sponsored research; in social media’s imitation of human connection; in legalese and corporate double-speak. It infects every facet of public life, corrupting our discourse, wrecking our trust in major institutions, lowering our standards for the truth, making it harder to achieve anything. ”
