“Could Fake Steve Jobs be, in real life, Andy Ihnatko?” asks Philip Elmer-DeWitt for Business 2.0.
“Ihnatko, for those who don’t read his tech reviews in the Chicago Sun Times or his back-page humor columns for MacWorld, is a self-described ‘Boston-based geek and writer who works for anyone foolish enough to pay him.’ He’s written for everybody from Playboy to Roger Ebert (who credits him as writing at least a third of Ebert’s Little Movie Glossary),” Elmer-DeWitt writes.
“You don’t have to read much of YellowText (‘The weblog of Andy Ihnatko! Possibly not the least-beloved technology pundit in the land!’) or his Colossal Waste of Bandwidth site (tag line: ”Better’ is the enemy of ‘good’ –Voltaire, I think, or, umm, somebody’) to see the similarity,” Elmer-DeWitt writes.

We’ve been seeing Andy and his trademark hat at Macworld Expos since forever. He’s as good a guess as any (but, better than most.)
