Great first blog post matey. Although I did notice a couple of grammar mistakes. Like "There" when i think you meant "their".
As a fellow blogger, you tend to notice things like this when you have been blogging for a while.

To be honest, the poor grammar is what turned me away from the blog. Didn't finish reading it. Sorry.

Your information about third party apps on OS X is incorrect. The ability to install apps on Macs is not a new feature. The Mac App Store is relatively new, but apps could be installed without it prior to that and they still can.

Fair enough, it's not always going to be liked by everyone :)

Try to use that criticism to grow and become a better blogger. The hard truth is that most people will stop reading a blog as soon as they notice poor grammar. It shows a lack of effort and there are plenty of other blogs available as alternatives. The grammar doesn't need to be perfect, but more effort in that area needs to be made if you want yours to be successful.

Equally important is research. Your information about OS X apps showed a lack of research. Be sure to verify information first or state that you aren't certain.

A good way to attract visitors to your site is to say you've found a bootrom exploit of the iPhone 5...

Spelling is almost as important as grammar, but most important is accuracy. You can overcome miscommunication easier than misinformation. I have no statistics on this. ;)

Brush up on your research and presentation and more will be on board instead of getting bored within the first paragraph. :cool:
