I’m Preshit Deorukhkar, a technology columnist, connoisseur of good visual design and a consultant from Mumbai, India. I am the Editor-in-Chief of Beautiful Pixels, where I write about and showcase exceptional examples of good design in any form or medium. I also work at FeedPress, helping deliver an amazing service to handle your RSS feeds.
Nuclear Bits is where I write about technology, Apple, photography, India, the Internet and other topics that interest me. You can subscribe to the RSS Feed using this link.

The question that I get asked most often is how do I pronounce my name. May be it’d help if I started spelling it as Préshit. The first part of my name is pronounced as ‘Pray’ while the last one rhymes with ‘myth’.
I’m 27, single and live in Mumbai, India. Growing up, I’ve been passionate about building stuff on the web. Back in 2006, I started a web-hosting company called Expertrio Web Services. In 2008, I co-founded Smoking Apples — a blog that covers in-depth reviews, analysis, views, opinions, tutorials and how-tos about all things Apple, Mac & iOS. In 2009, I co-founded Beautiful Pixels — a blog that features a showcase of anything and everything that has beautiful pixels. Then in 2010, I put together a small but genius team of passionate individuals and started working towards Homescreen.me, a website that lets you showcase your iOS device homescreens and the apps you’re using on them.
Apart from being the Editor on Smoking Apples and Beautiful Pixels, I have also been an Editor on sites like WATBlog, MobileIndustryReview, The Fifty Paise and IndiaGSM and briefly, the India Editor at The Next Web.
I have also enjoyed working as the Sr. Public Relations Executive at one of the best app development companies in the world — Sourcebits.
