Captain2Phones is Leaving Pocketnow

“I thought Michael Fisher was Pocketnow…”

That’s one of the most upvoted reactions on the Android subreddit to the news that Michael Fisher—aka “Captain 2 Phones”—was leaving the popular tech blog and YouTube channel.

There’s some good news in an indication that he hasn’t given up on reviewing phones or making videos altogether, but Pocketnow will almost certainly be hurting in the absence of his considerable talent. Mr. Fisher, if you didn’t know, is a trained voice-over artist—and it shows in every video he’s narrated.

To look back on his contributions to Pocketnow is to celebrate the very history of Android itself. So why don’t we do just that?
