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. Interesting about HTC buying Mog. Hope that doesn’t mean they’ll shut down their service to non-HTC devices and that they’ll just give more attention to their Android app.

    I do wish Google had bought them instead. With the discovery/search tools Google could come up with, they’d do well in the unlimited music game.

  2. I really hope Zynga don’t get their claws into Draw Something and infest it with their spamware :-(

    1. I agree with this Zynga ruins everything they touch.  Its going to get so expensive to play this FREE game.

  3. I find Draw Something’s android app to be really buggy and in need of update. It has to check with FB for about a minute every time I open it, and then flash the screen on/off a few times before loading up my games list. I wouldn’t mind if it came into the control of Zynga.
