Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."

  1. So currently i’m on AT&T. I’m sick of the service issues I have in this area, so I’m going back to verizon. The droid seems like an obvious choice.

    I love my techy toys and sharing info / playing with new ideas on boards like this, so I just wanted to introduce myself and say hi!!

    I’m REALLY looking forward to being able to customize the interface and sounds on the device!! those restrictions drove me nuts on iphone!

    If you haven’t already, check out it’s an awesome fans site for Droid owners.

  2. Bought my wife one when they first came out through Verizon who had just aquired Alltel. The droid is a nice looking phone, but much of the applications and uses are not as intuitive as the iPhone. The battery life is very poor if you are doing anything other than on standby; and the touch screen is waaaaayyyyyyy to touchy. Constantly butt dailing, and hanging up on people just by touching the phone to her ear or face. I bought the phone because the iPhone was not available in our area; but this is NOT a replacement. It will do until an iPhone becomes available.

  3. you're not smart

    That’s utterly incorrect about there not being a Mac sync option. Use Google and fix this post before you literally get a lawsuit on your hands.

  4. Salling Media Sync will sync all the media from a Mac in a few simple steps. Do some research next time you write an article.

    • I did find that, but Motorola has yet to provide an official product. Read my post a bit more carefully next time: “There are a few aftermarket options out there, but as of this review Motorola has yet to develop a Mac friendly sync tool.”

      Lastly, I’m not in the business of suggesting 3rd party apps, especially when they might f*ck up someone’s machine.

  5. Good Review!
    I guess I’m the only one that finds the directional pad with a single click button handy. For me, the touch screen is kind of too touchy sometimes when I’m scrolling through a long list and I use the directional pad to scroll up and down without accidentally choosing something.

  6. Check out doubleTwist for syncing from a Mac. Recent updates give it integration with Amazon MP3 and looks very similar to iTunes…
