Post image for Droid RAZR review

The original RAZR cellphone was a clamshell flip-phone released by Motorola in 2004. for a time, they were very popular, being well-made, reliable, and a nice design (they were fairly small and thin, yet very ergonomic and functional). Motorola has released a new smartphone iteration of the RAZR line, which (to differentiate from the original) [...]



Droid Bionic review

The Droid Bionic is a high-powered, multimedia smartphone offering from Verizon Wireless and Motorola. Is becoming part of a trend mentioned by techie luminaries years ago, one that never really got off the ground, until, perhaps, now. In ye olden days (this is what I call the 1980s and 1990s), cellphones were new and rare. [...]

Kickstarter is a very interesting service that could be the future of funding. It takes out the middle-man and provides creators with direct access to funding from the fans who want to support them.

The Droid 3 is the latest in the Motorola Droid lineup. Like the other Droid phones, the Droid 3 is distinctive. It’s a “blockier” design than most other smartphones out there.

The Sony Ericsson Xperia Play – which from here on out we’ll call the “Xperia” – is a cellphone well-designed for one thing, gaming. More specifically, it’s a Playstation / PSP emulator that does a great job in bringing Sony Playstation ports to an Android smartphone. When the Xperia is closed it’s in stealth mode, [...]

I love Plants vs Zombies, but in the case of  Plants vs Zombies for the Nintendo DS, the port wasn’t done very well. Or rather, all the game elements are there, but with no attempt to compensate for the DS’s weaknesses. I recommend against it if you’re new to Plants vs Zombies – in that [...]

For those with the right needs (or perhaps those with the right sense of adventure) the HTC Trophy brings a double bonus. First, it’s a smartphone with world coverage, and is small, light and fast. Second, it’s Verizon’s first phone running Microsoft’s contribution to the 2011 smartphone OS market – the HTC Trophy runs Windows [...]

HTC ThunderBolt review

The HTC ThunderBolt is an Android-powered phone that’s heavy on multimedia features, and is therefore heavy on fun. The phone is fast – performance was great for video playback and gaming. (The ThunderBolt comes with many preloaded games, including “Rock Band”, which is kind of like Guitar Hero for Android. It’s fun and I spent [...]

Thumbnail image for Abobe Photoshop vs. Corel Photo-Paint: Why I switched

I’ve been a Corel user for a good chunk of my life. I’ve dabbled with the Corel Graphics Suite since version 6, released in 1995. Now I’m done with Corel Photo-Paint and am using Adobe Photoshop. From 1995 to 2011 is a long time to dedicate to a particular company, much less a particular program. But [...]
