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.

  5. Looks like Google is going the way of SimplyTapp and doing everything through the cloud to bypass all the carrier bullsh¡t. Good for them. I’m sure people would rather use Wallet over ISIS

    1. i just don’t get why Google doesn’t make wallet available to all compatible devices in the play store. i mean really what could the carriers do? sue? that would get thrown out of court so fast.

      1. The carriers block it in anticipation of ISIS. I think google is going to bypass it all together and make it work like SimplyTapp, on any NFC device

        1. that’s cool the first i heard of simlplytapp to bad i’m not into rooting and flashing roms.

  6. Hmm I’ve seen that Chinese android relic somewhere http://phandroid.com/?p=109995 lol
