App Review: Georgie and Synaptic

Steve, who had more time on his hands to play with apps and things, also delves into another option in this arena in his description of “Synapptic”. To learn more about this alternative , visit the official website.

Hardware Review: Droid 4

joe’s long search for a replacement handset has ended in his selection of the Motorola Droid 4. He showed it to JJ at the Summer Convention in Dallas, and through a series of events we’ve been asked not to elaborate on [but can spread rumor and conjecture  about], he too now has a Droid 4. JJ and joe take some time to talk about what they like, and are eagerly hoping for in the unit’s ICS update, with the phone that sports one of the best hardware keyboards on the market.
