and so, 3.5 years later ...
Android Apps. I've had my Samsung Galaxy S3
for about one year. See which are my favorite apps and why.

Need I say more?
Fun with Palm Centro.
How can anyone say no to getting this phone for free? I couldn't, so now we
have four Palm Centros in the house, one for each family member.
Fun with Comcast.
Seriously, just how long did you think it would take to get a Comcast entry
onto my web site?
Fun with Fedex. Shouldn't
accurate and current mapping be a staple of any delivery company?
