I've been obsessed with consumer technology for about as long as I can remember, be it video games, photography, or mobile devices. If you can plug it in, I have to own it. Preparing for the day when Android finally becomes self-aware and I get to welcome our new robot overlords.

  1. Instead of spending money on Nascar and the NBA, how about spending money on the network instead?

  2. Nexus is hunted literally after its release. The USP of the device being, it is parented by the Google’s software and Samsung’s hardware! The product would be the best of the kinds and iphone have a reason to feel left out!
    Thanks for the detailing!

  3. Are you ever doing to check your links before posting ? More broken links (as for every Overload piece).

    .Google+ check-in offers go live in the Android app. [VentureBeat]

  4. I’m stunned, the NBA drop T-Mobile as their official wireless partner.

  5. LOL fucking amazing how a big story such as $1 million being stole from Android users gets grouped in with non stories to hopefully cover it up.

    Unreal how you guys want to protect your shitty open OS that ALLOWS PEOPLE TO STEAL MONEY FROM ITS USERS!LMAO THIS IS FUCKING TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE.

    Holy shit, are you guys STUPID.

    1. Dear iTard, $1M is a drop in the bucket.

      1. Drop in the bucket? Would you like to repay all those people?

        I highly doubt a shitty Android developer like you, who develops dumb fucking apps that keep your phone at 100% brightness when charging, would ever make a million dollars in their lifetime. 

        1. Ah, I forgot to make things simpler so the iTard could understand it: One million dollars is a drop in the huge bucket of all android users. Divide $1 million by 200+ million android activations and what do you get? $0.005. A rounding error. (and besides, it’s mostly dummies (no matter the platform) who are soon parted from their money anyway)

        2. Go play in the road!
