    i like these Overload posts, but i wish u would test the links before publishing. It happens very very often that i can’t read the article i want to. Like here the one about LG. i have to google the article, kinda defeats the purpose :/

      THIS! This happens to be one of only a few sites I visit. But has more typos, incorrect weblinks, etc than any other site. Embarrassing!

      @facebook-100000276000708:disqus  Yeah, I don’t know what’s up with links. Sometimes they break. There’s really nothing the poster can do. We need to talk with our web site guy..

      Protip: If you click a link and it takes you to the “Can’t find post” screen, just click the URL and you’ll find the original link you were trying to go to (www.reuters.com..). Just delete everything before that and it will work.
      Frustrating I know but it’s easier than doing a Google search.

    Lg, lol what is going on? Samsung also suffered from their tv business, but the are in other businesses like mobile huge revenues, cpu, ssds, laptops, hd, etc.. and the mobile kept them in the green.

    Lg life is not so good. With a bitter taste in lg phone owners with bad update hx. Good luck selling newer phones.

    Where that prada phone lol.

    P.S.A. the update for the thinkpad is only an minor update its not the 3.2 honeycomb update

    I love my G2x, no bitter taste here. I’ve owned 14 Android phones and this is by far the best.
