This is cool! Thanks for the share! I am sure there are a lot of pre-iPhone-4 users out there due to the antenna issues. I myself won’t update until all of the bugs are fixed. This will be useful until then!

Dave: Thanks!

Sloan: Aww, come now. The iPhone does some amazing stuff. The better Droids aren’t much cheaper (though the older/not-so-great Droids are) and BBerry/Windows phones/Whatever Nokia is trying to do right now all lag behind the iPhone and the Droid in terms of versatility, interface, etc.

Windows mobile blows. Symian phone have their advantages and disadvantages. Galaxy S is the same price and worlds better. I use a Google nexus one and it may not have the screen or camera iPhone 4 does, but its interface and customization potential buries all iPhones hands down. And plus the apps don’t have to be Google approved.

Did I mention my nexus one was $200 cheaper?

Now that depends. If you’re eligible for upgrades, the iPhone is a lot less. My 1G finally died in Vegas this past May, before the 4 came out, and I’m not an early adopter (read: “beta tester”) anyway. So, I bought a nice, new 3GS for relatively cheap. It’s a great phone and stands up to newer models from other brands. :)

I really want my husband to ditch his Sprint paperweight and get on a family plan with me. Selfishly, I want him to get the Samsung Droid for AT&T because I love it. Unselfishly, I want him to get it because he wants to try programming Droid apps. :)

If he wants to write Droid he should get one of the new unlocked nexus ones. Nexus one is the Google dev phone. Its the programmer’s standard with the latest software. The new screens are as good as the amoled on the galaxy S. Att is terrible, I wouldn’t encourage anyone to deal with them.

The 3gs is the best bang for the Buck in the iPhone market for sure. I still maintain that the newer (and some of the older) androids are better. Nexus one wins in my book because it is one of the only android phones with the latest OS version. That makes more of a difference than you can imagine.

If Steve or anyone you know wants phone tech advice I have certainly done the research and love to rattle on about it. Send them my way.

I’m not giving up my iPhone. Hence, AT&T. ;) Thanks for the advice about the Nexus! Steve wants to make something that will be sure to run well on a locked phone, but even if he himself uses an unlocked phone, I’m sure he’ll figure out the nuances when he gets into it. Related: The “no sideloading” rule that so many phone-makers have is kind of irritating.

Google doesn’t do that, that’s a carrier based thing. No sideloading is Att. Att galaxy S model doesn’t allow sideload, but T-Mobile does for example. The way the programs are written is an OS version thing rather than a locked vs unlocked thing.

That, I didn’t know! I thought it was more a manufacturer thing than a carrier thing. I know that AT&T tends to be strict, but this is a bit much.

Yeah Att nerfs droids so they can keep their iPhone sales up. The misconception you had is exactly their goal.

After I got over the shock that she was still using it as a daily device I went on a hunt to see about getting a replacement one. Even as I type this I m finding it hard to understand that someone wouldn t just want it all integrated..Thankfully she got it working again and now is hunting for a new battery on eBay my suggestion ..What the above experience reminded me of is that there are still many people out there that don t mind carrying a separate PDA. Of course companies will have you believe that no one wants that anymore and Palm has completely exited that market as evidenced by the current which doesn t show any device that s not a phone too..So are we all caught up with getting a smartphone because that s what the companies have told us we need to have?

.With Facebook having over 500 million registered users youd expect the traffic passing through the site every day to be huge. But its not until you look at the figures until you realize just how big of a part of the Internet Facebook has become..Democracy UK a UK political campaigning initiative has posted a 20 minute snapshot of activity on the social network. Heres what the Facebook servers have to deal with over a very short period of time .

One thing they did say about her though was that she loved olive oil, which is why she lived so long. Impressive when you sit down and think of it.
