The Palm Pre is pretty sexy. I have a Samsung Eternity, and promptly broke the screen about a week after getting it. Serves me right for trying to keep up with that newfangled technology and being cool...

I got the palm pixi about a month ago. I love it.
I had a blackberry, but the trackball broke right when the warranty was out, so I was screwed. The blackberry was easy to navigate and use, but the pixi is really simple, works well, and is user friendly as well. That, and the apps are good and browser is fast.

Smartphones are for folks who want to surf the web freely during meetings and check in on work when they're not there.

i've got a Motorola droid and like it a lot. it allows me to watch woody woodpecker on you tube when work is really boring. at first i thought it was too much phone for me , but use it way more than i thought i would.

Iphones are rad. Rarely do i see someone returning an iphone. once you have one, you'll probably never go back to anything else. i think i'm gonna have to bite the bullet and get one.

oh, new iphone software update out yesterday! Be sure to powercycle your phone after downloading!

! Be sure to powercycle your phone after downloading!
Your answer


what does that mean? i don't know how to work this thing.

i love my iphone. i was using hand-me-down phones (thanks hemant, mary, j9, and j9 again) forever when i splurged for the iphone. it will get better, but i really don't understand ipad when my phone does everything i want it to, and my laptop does the rest.

and good old books are available.

sit tight on the ipad.

connect to itunes. i tunes will automaticaly recognize the iphone . you are now ready for downloading the ne software update designed to give you more battery life. after download is complete, powercycle the phone.

powercycle means turn the device completely off. power the phone down for about 20 seconds. turn back on, wait for reboot...voila! you have successfully powercycled!

when traveling long distances it is highly recomended to powercycle upon arrival. this routes you to the nearest 911 center if you should need assisstance.

iPhone. Bleh. I don't want a phone that my boss, aunt and all of my shitty co-workers have. It's only cool if you jailbreak it. Otherwise, you'll be forced to goose-step to Apple's proprietary software and "experience". Get a Droid. You can do anything on it. Right now I have Nintendo, Super-Nintendo and Sega Genesis emulators installed on it. 'Nuff said. Haha. Plus, it has a 16:9 aspect ration screen. Wide-screen/HD flicks rule on this mothafucka!

and...Flash 10.1 will be available for the Droid soon. Hulu, online games, animations, streaming video (ahem, porn). Flash is never going to be available for the iPhone.

Why do you say that?

Just got a Palm Treo Pro. Runs Windows Mobile 6.1. It's pretty basic, but I have a telnet/ssh client so I can use it for work. And it syncs up with our Exchange server.

I avoided the iphone because I wanted something unique, but it was a waste of time and money. The Windows mobile on the HTC Flip was a mess in the same way the iphone OS works without much fuss. It replaces multiple devices I've used out of the office (digital camera, camcorder, windmeter, calculator, Anemometer, Sound-Level Meter, etc.) with it's hardware and apps.

I'll be psyched when an app is available for true streaming of internet radio, but Shoutcast is good for now, giving a voice to the right and far left, mostly silenced in the NeoLib/ NeoCon MSM.

if you're thinking of going for an Android device the Nexus is where its at. I have a Droid, but work with various smartphones at my job and the Nexus is slicker and faster. If you need a physical keyboard then I guess you should go Droid, but I hate the physical keyboard and have barely ever used it.
Posted: Feb 9, 2010 4:08 pm
 
i never use the slide out keyboard either on my droid. i have the body glove case and it makes it hard for my fat fingers to reach the top keys. can't wait til flash comes out for it. apple screwed the pooch on the whole flash deal for the iphone.

Taken out of context, this would scare the shit out of me.

A guy I know was dickin' around on his Blackberry one night, and I asked him why he didn't get an iPhone. He informed me that iPhones were for liberals. "Republicans use Blackberries."

I hope that helps you inyour decision making process.
