Leander Kahney (born 25 November 1965) is a technology writer and author. He is a former managing editor, and previously a senior reporter, at Wired News, the online sister publication of Wired. He is also the author of three books centered on the subculture surrounding Apple products, as well as the company itself: The Cult of Mac, Cult of iPod (ISBN 1-886411-83-2) and Inside Steve's Brain.
Kahney is currently best known for his role as editor and publisher of a popular Apple-centric blog, also titled Cult of Mac. As a prominent writer on Apple- and Mac-related topics, Kahney was once theorized (incorrectly) to be the identity of Fake Steve Jobs.
