If you own a smartphone, you have probably become accustomed to having a wireless internet connection where ever you go. On the other hand, unless you picked up a MiFi (personal hotspot) or... have a 3G plan for your tablet, that same internet connection for your tablet or computer is restricted to your house, or in some cases, your neighbors house. But what if all you had to do was push a...

net marketshare misleading stats

I’m getting really tired of arguing against Net Marketshare stats. Every month they post the same type of hugely misleading stats.

apple-vs-google

 

Android is going into Politics! Well, no… but pretty close. We just got word that Google’s Android has obtained the approval of Pentagon in an effort of overseeing the US military... to use the software. This is alongside the officials’ usage of the equally encrypted Blackberry.

However, the approval is very specific. The software can only be used on hardware which is already ru...

Perfect-Phone-Size

 A lot of terms today are thrown around in the Android community that to some, may be a little confusing. I have decided to write a post that may help clear up some of the confusion for the newcomers... to the world that we have come to know as Android. The first part (that I will not covering today) is the hardware our phones are built with; the processor, screen, battery, and etc. The other is the so...
