Saikat Basu

Writer

Expert freelance writer and editor with over 11 years experience in technology writing and SEO copywriting. I write about apps and software how-to's, smart technology, green technology, and the impact of technology on our lifestyle.

I am the Internet, Windows, and Productivity Editor at MakeUseOf.com. I am also a subject matter expert on Microsoft Office and Adobe Creative Suites. Apart from that, I like to write about lifestyle and wellness. The intersection of technology and education is of special interest to me as a lifelong learner.

In a previous life, I gathered ten years worth of experience in marketing for well-known brands like Whirlpool and Toyota.
