About Max

Shalom, I’m Max Bleich! Welcome to my blog! I am a writer, researcher, political scientist, and recent graduate of Tel Aviv University (M.A. Political Science). I earned my B.A. in Judaic Studies from the University of Cincinnati and a Graduate Certificate in Judaic Studies from the same institution. In my smol boi days, I served as Online Editor-in-Chief and Opinion Editor for The Beachcomber, and served as Editor of TheTechTile, where I wrote way too many editorials and briefs regarding the consumer electronics industry, politics, and the like. Today, this website is a home for all of my selected past work in TheTechTile as well as newer politically focused writings. Among other ventures, I’ve been published multiple times in The American Israelite, a leading Jewish publication based out of Cincinnati, Ohio, and in The Times of Israel Online. My silly writing brag is that in high school I was an Ohio Scholastic Media Association award-winning columnist and reporter. I am actively seeking new writing opportunities and would love to write for you! To contact me, feel free to send an email at bleichmj@gmail.com. Thank you for visiting!

Tap Tap! The Apple Watch Review

7 A.M, I wake up to a gentle ringing and pick up my beautiful silver Apple Watch from the pseudo-charging cradle that lays beside my bed on a nightstand: it is time for another day with my latest toy and companion. As I shower, watch on wrist, I shift through Bob Dylan and Joan Baez tracks while checking the weather and responding to late night texts I had missed. The watch, although quoted to be water resistant, is in actuality waterproof for short periods of time and ignorant to certain low water pressures. On my drive to the office my watch vibrates with a reminder to call my friend David, who I easily ask Siri to call and I talk to from my watch. Is this real life? Sure is! The sound isn't tinny, it's not booming either, but just loud and clear enough to enjoy the conversation instead of dreading it. Throughout the work day I receive dozens of light taps that don't annoy me the way my obnoxious Pebble did (vibrating so loud it would shake the table under

Why Isn't Everyone Using Ubuntu? (Rant)

I've been an avid Linux user for many years now, starting with my adoption of Red Hat on my old beige box HP, going down to running Ubuntu 7.04 on my old Gateway 15 inch hunker of a laptop, and now on my 14 inch Dell Vostro 3450. I've at least tried every version of Canonical's famous community-supported OS since 2003. And I've also experienced such distros as Fedora, Mint and MEPIS. Needless to say, I've certainly gotten my feet wet in the Linux world, so using Ubuntu has never been anything new or odd to me. There's just something so intimate about using Linux, from the installation, to boot, to use- everything feels more personal, more customized, more free. And isn't that the very purpose for the existence of Linux distributions? This in itself is one of the main reasons I typically recommend Ubuntu over other linux distributions. It works with incredible consistency, is supported by an unbelievably large community of devout users, is super easy to use,

From Desk To Pocket: A major shift in computing

The computing world is by far one of the fastest shifting industries in the entire planet. It seems as if every two or three years, technology makes another giant leap forward in terms of speed, functionality and compatibility. One of the greatest changes in the computer world which has since dominated the lives of many Americans and human beings is the shift from the desk to the pocket. Mobile computing, once a hilarious idea inconceivable due to cost and build factor, is now more than real- it's amazing. Mobile computing, in all truth, began with the popularity of the cellular phone in the mid nineties and expanded with the release of the iPhone in 2007. You can be an Apple fanboy or an Anti-Apple PC nazi or even a regular dude in a coffee shop, and you'd know that this is cold hard fact. Before the iPhone, smartphones weren't exactly powerful and were only a business man's toy. Ever since the iPhone however, everybody can find a use for a smartphone, even your grandp
