Will hails from The City of Angels - Los Angeles, California. He spends his time playing with his numerous gadgets and looking forward to seeing what future holds for mobile technology. An avid promoter of a fully "digital" life, he promotes the widespread adoption of truly mobile, paper-less living. He dreams of the day when he can go completely digital. No more snail mail, paper receipts, bound books, notepads/spiral notebooks, credit cards, hard currency. He's a digital warrior - fighting for the converged life. He is an idealist and a realist - he has a perfect view of what the world should be but knows that the world is not perfect. Can we ever hope to see Will's dream become reality? We'll see...
One of the new and neat features in iOS 5 is keyboard shortcuts, something BlackBerry users are very familiar with. Basically, you just enter a shortcut – like using “ty” for the phrase “Thank You” – and the smartphone does the rest for you. But first, you actually have to set it up. See the video below if you want to get keyboard shortcuts set up on your iPhone. For those of you at work or in places where you can’t watch videos, here’s how you do it: Go into … Read more
Nokia makes beautiful hardware, we all know this, and the N9 is no exception. It’s like a giant version of the rectangular iPod nano, aluminum and all, and reviews all over the web make the MeeGo device sound like a dream. Except for that one minor detail, its Achilles’ heel, MeeGo. Slap some Windows Phone 7 into this thing and we could have a winner (the idea alone makes me a little excited to see the WP7 handsets Nokia has lined up for Nokia World). I’m just as much a … Read more
The HTC Radar 4G for T-Mobile has just arrived for me as the FedEx guy furiously hit my buzzer and decided to play Morse code with it, but that’s another story. The HTC Radar 4G was just announced with full pricing details this morning, and I’m excited to review this phone because it’s a departure from the usual, somewhat boring Android business I’ve been swamped in recently. I think I’ve reviewed like fifty Android devices alone this year. So, I’m glad to have this Windows Phone 7 device in my … Read more
Seriously, Sony Ericsson, it’s a miracle you have any fan sites these days and you just want to shut them down? Don’t get me wrong, it’s not that you don’t make halfway decent phones – the Xperia Arc is OK, but how’s that stacking up against the Galaxy S II, Galaxy Nexus, DROID RAZR or the HTC Sensation series? Instead of shutting down fan communities like Xperiablog.net, and ultimately turning them into your enemies, you should embrace them. They’re the small handful of die-hard fans you have left, really. Since … Read more

Since many of us our glued to our cell phones throughout the day, it’s natural to worry whether all those radio waves and the radiation are harming us. For every handful of studies that show no correlation between heavy cell phone use and brain cancer, there are a few that do. However, a 15-year study might finally put this issue to rest. For now. Until the next study comes along and resets this fear all over again. According to Ars Technica: By processing all this data, a research team was … Read more
Sprint just killed unlimited 4G data from its mobile hotspot plans, which means the few reasons to go with Sprint in the first place are becoming smaller. It also means that if you’re looking to sign up for new service for a mobile hotspot, there really is no reason to choose Sprint over Verizon, whose 4G LTE mobile hotspots destroy WiMax any day. Oh, and guess what? If you think your antiquated plans are going to be grandfathered, think again. You’ll be capped, too. Gizmodo reports: Sprint’s plans now cost … Read more
What’s better than having choices and options? Even more choices and options, or at least that’s what Samsung seems to think. Today the company announced the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus for the U.S., which officially puts the Galaxy Tab tablet count to just over head-spinning. Complementing the 8.9 and 10.1 versions, the 7.0 Plus is more like its newer siblings versus its predecessor, the ill-timed Galaxy Tab from last fall. All the details you need are below in the press release. Good luck. Samsung Expands U.S. Tablet Portfolio with Galaxy … Read more
The HTC EVO Design 4G – could these names possibly get any longer? – moves the EVO line forward into a new, global phone for half the price of what you’d normally expect. The EVO Design 4G is an Android 2.3 Gingerbread smartphone, and as the “4G” denotes, it’s also WiMax capable. That means you should get relatively decent data download and upload speeds, as well as good latency. The EVO Design 4G has a 4-inch qHD display, something that seems to be coming standard on most Android smartphones these … Read more
Motorola announced today, in partnership with Verizon Wireless, the DROID RAZR. The DROID RAZR is the thinnest Android smartphone yet. In fact, it’s the thinnest smartphone ever at just 7.1mm thick, perfect for your skinniest of skinny jeans. When one thinks of a device so thin, the first thing that comes to mind is, “How on earth am I going to keep from cracking that thing in half?” Motorola assures us that the Gorilla glass, stainless steel core and carbon fiber structure can handle the back pocket test, which is … Read more
Motorola will be taking the stage and could be announcing some interesting devices today. While our bets are obviously on the upcoming Droid RAZR, Motorola could possibly have the Xoom 2 or even a 7-inch version of the tablet ready for announcement today. Whether or not anyone will care after Google and Samsung’s announcement is anyone’s guess. Stay tuned for our live coverage!
