Nexus 7 (2013) – Can It Dethrone My iPad Mini?

On a recent trip, I found myself packing two small tablets; the Nexus 7 and the iPad Mini. I thought this was ridiculous. Packing two small tablets totally negates the point of portability. And I would switch between one or the other, which made things confusing. Apart from all that, it’s just excessive to have




Top 5 Most Useful Mobile Device Accessories

5. Tile These little tags work with an app to ensure you don’t lose your oft-misplaced items like keys, wallets, tablets, etc. Tags attach themselves to pretty much anything and the app helps you find lost items with a proximity meter. It also features a way to locate your device with sound, which I think




Scam Alert: AT&T’s “Next” and Verizon’s “Edge” Still Not Addressing Transparency Issue

Good news for phone lovers who want to upgrade every year instead of every two years! AT&T and Verizon have essentially come out with leasing programs called “Next” and “Edge,” respectively. On AT&T’s “Next,” for example, you can have a Galaxy S4 for $27/month installments with no down payment, which comes to $324 for the

iOS 7 Wish Lists VS Reality

Out with the old and in with the new, iOS 7 has finally come to freshen things up. Or has it? I downloaded the iOS 7 beta version for free using instructions and links from my friends over at TheUnlockr.com and you can, too. However, keep in mind that this is Apple’s beta, and it




Customers Swindled By Carriers For Too Long – T-Mobile says No More Contracts

By no means is this recent news, but it IS something consumers need to know about. When you sign up for a 2-year contract with any carrier, you are NOT getting a huge discount on that new phone. No matter what, you are eventually paying the full cost of that phone. The most common way




Windows 8 Update (8.1) – Features More Metro, Less Desktop

Microsoft wants to steer us away from the familiar Windows 7-style Desktop interface with the Windows 8 update, called Windows 8.1. Details from a leaked video preview, found a couple weeks ago by The Verge, suggest Microsoft plans to do so by improving the Metro interface.* Die-hard Desktop fans, lay down your pitchforks and extinguish




Windows Phone 8 – for iPhone users who want a larger screen

I love Windows Phone 8. It reminded me of when I picked up a 1st generation iPod Touch when it was first released (before iPhone!) and how intuitively easy it was to become familiar with iOS (1.0?). WP8 seems to lean towards users who don’t really care so much about customization and love intuitive functionality. It




Should You Get a Galaxy S4 or iPhone 5?

My quick answer? Galaxy S4. Why? If you’re like me and you use your phone A LOT, a larger screen just makes sense (iPhone has a 4 inch screen whilst the S4′s is 5 inches). I also think some of Android’s standard features along with the S4′s new features could enhance everyday phone use. iOS 6 is stale and




Samsung Galaxy S4 – Specs, Air View, Air Gestures and Other New Features

Finally, we are released from the clutches of rumors, leaks and speculation; the Galaxy S4 was officially revealed last night at NYC’s Radio City Music Hall. The unveiling event, full of glitz and glam, looked like an Oscar’s Awards ceremony with a pinch of Broadway, but this is a tech blog, not a theater review.
