Mailbag

We got in a question about running Google Android on your PC. Blue Stacks is one way of doing it, however, it may require you to have some useable vision.

Here is an article from Ars Technica that gives a better hands on description of the app.

We also got in a question from our email Inbox asking about cheap or basic Android phones. During the discussion J.J. mentions that he uses Phone Scoop and Android Police as good sites for staying up to date on the latest phones that would qualify in these areas.

In a response to some comments made by Mike Arigo, we talked about the status of the Blio app on Android.
