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. I think you made a typo in the title… Juries SHOULD -> SHOULDN’T

    Not trying to be one of those annoying people that are hating or anything, but I reckon that’s a pretty glaring mistake that can lead to confusion :)

    1. Oh man. Thanks. It’s 4AM. I probably should be posting this late.. :p

      1. If you’re still up, here’s another one: “Google provides like of bloggers and journalists not paid to comment on Oracle trial.”
        “Like” should probably be “list”.

        1. And besides, the link is not the right one.

      2. Haha! No worries. It’s late so I’ll forgive you. Now go to sleep! :)

  2. Why on earth would I want Samsung’s touchwiz on my HTC phone?? lol

    1. Some would ask why on earth you would even want an HTC phone. Preference.

      1. Well, imo, Touchwiz is more uglier than Sense 4 …

        1. Like I said it comes down to preference. At least the options there for those who like it or maybe even you if you get bored and want to try something new on the future. Better than being locked down to one choice like iOS.

          1. Lol, we can agree there.

  3. The link for:Google provides like of bloggers and journalists not paid to comment on Oracle trial.

    Is directing to a year old phandroid article

    1. and says a ‘like of bloggers’. I think it means ‘list of bloggers’?
