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. Thank you for the link to the 29 days with Android, great article.

  2. finally. Give android a go and you become phandroid.

  3. Excellent article!!! I have personally converted 2 family members and 3 friends to android. My family members are enjoying their first android and the friends were ex-iphone users and now swear by android. All for basically the same reasons as quoted in the article. These are the reasons why android will maintain an edge and beat IOS. In my opinion.

  4. I like everything about this, I work for att and against what we are told I talk people out of the iphone every day, I sell more HTC vivids than the 4s ;) Also people that use ical can send an invite to google owners gmails an it will automatically input it into your calendar without even opening the email… There is more functionality between the two than most people would want to believe. (well unless you are the one with the iphone in which case there is none) but all in all 5 star post sir… well done.
