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. Wow, the ATRIX HD hitting the “BARGAIN BIN” already. Can’t say I’m surprised, no doubt to soon be joined by the PHOTON Q………..

    This is the new MOTOROLA,led by WOODSIDE & SONI, will we need to flush twice, or, will it sink on it’s own……….

  2. That leaked ROM for the Verizon S3 is NOT Jelly Bean. It’s just another ICS update. If there is a JB leak I haven’t seen it and it sure isn’t at that leak.

  3. And AOKP unfortunately is still seeing a lot of RR and SODs on build 4 and the new nightlies for the Hercules.

  4. The Map comparison is using the Apple developed iOS5 maps version versus iOS6’s Apple Maps. The Android version of maps uses vector maps and has for years.

    1. Yeah it’s funny how they were all excited over turn by turn

  5. Is that free FOR upgrades or free OF upgrades?
    Just sayin’
