Way to block a phone no one cares about.....

Really, Apple, if you're going to get a phone banned, ban the SIII - that's the phone that's going to and is placing a giant gouge in your face.

Fame and Fortune.

Here is something I wrote and shared with others.

For thirty years, Apple has been the struggling Artist. It believed in remaining far removed from society when it came to its beliefs. It wanted to do things its way and nobody else's.

Along the way, it took ideas and incorporated them in its act. It piqued limited interest here and there through a couple of generations and continued the road of performing trying to get that major break.

Enter the iPhone:

A revolutionary product to not only grab attention of a new generation but also some of the older. This propels Apple to world Fame and Stardom. The struggling artist now has reached the goal it longed for.

However, Apple has not learned the consequence of Fame; Emulation a...

A patent on the LOCATION of a MOVABLE WIDGET?

They probably also invented placing a laptop computer on top of a desk.

The only non-sleazy part of Apple is the part someone bit off in 1976.

Samsung GS3

Well I just ordered my 32gb Galaxy S3 at 2:20am last night. (they weren't ready at midnight even though the said it would be available online on July 1st. They begged off that claim by saying the meant PST)

Anyway.... is there reason to be hopefull that 4.1 will come to the GS3 any time soon?

Apple seems like a spoiled brat

It seems that Apple cannot compete against Android on the open market that they must sue everyone for every little idea they claim they invented, and will not stop until they achieve total and complete World Domination of the Smartphone and Tablet Market.

The NFC Finals: Google Wallet vs.TecTiles

Among technology's previous generation of Next Big Things, we heard a lot of talk about the potential of NFC (Near-Field Communication). Smartphone manufacturers were excited enough to start putting NFC on over 40 production models in 2011 alone -- despite the fact that there were very few real-world applications. Google tried to jump-start NFC with an ambitious Google Wallet project, and Samsung's recently unveiled TecTiles hopes to make app-loving users excited about the possibilities.

Google Wallet/Checkout

I went to the Google Wallet website to see which websites accepted the feature. Among them were and However, when I clicked on the Google Checkout button, it says that my current method of payment is invalid. Why is this when I have $50 worth of credit in my Google Wallet? Anyone having this issue or am I just doing something wrong? Am I not actually able to use this online?

Won't sync all my FaceBook contacts & pix like I easily did w/ my DroidX

Been reading how the Galaxy Nexus won't simply sync up with all my FB contacts like my any Moto Droid will easily do. One forum recommended I get the app HaxSync. (I think I have to also 1st install the official FB app). Any info/input/advice regarding if this is the only (or the best) way to get all my FB contacts (with their contact pix) on the Galaxy Nexus I'm about to get. Is there any reason to get the Droid Razor instead... Still wanting the G.Nexus at this point.
