Report: Chevy Volt's range will be 25 miles on battery power, or maybe 50 (Autoblog)

Sep 24th 2010 9:39AM Agree with map...

This seems completely reasonable to me. 1st gen tech guys (relatively). Early adopters should expect this type of issue and as long as it helps get the 2nd gen better, and 3rd gen, etc. then its a win for all.

iPhone OS 4 to include Facebook video uploads? (Engadget)

Jun 14th 2010 10:06AM I hope you guys are wrong and mean view uploaded vids. I uploaded several (before I ditches for the Android goodness).

See how I slipped that totally unnecessary reference in there....

HTC files patent complaint against Apple, asks for ban on iPhone, iPad, and iPod (Engadget)

Too soon? The sarcasm didn't exactly drip through like it did in my head.

HTC files patent complaint against Apple, asks for ban on iPhone, iPad, and iPod (Engadget)

May 12th 2010 2:06PM Awwww snap. Clearly this means nothing but years of legal battles but Jobs' new liver won't last forever and someone less evil will eventually be forced to take over.

HTC Droid Incredible arrives as promised (Update: not yet!) (Engadget)

Apr 29th 2010 11:58AM Mine showed up a couple days early, and it is everything I thought it could be.

Blows away my 3gs in terms of flexibility to put what I want, where I want it. And so far i have about 90% of the apps on it that I had on my 3gs (so much for that argument). It flies compared to when I used the droid and nexus (neither of which were slow). And the biggest kicker is, no more crappy itunes, Optical button is unobtrusive but works perfectly and I can actually drag and drop music/files/whatever the heck I want on my phone. Plus it is showing as having 6+GB of internal memory without the SD card, which is a good surprise.

Cons: Screen is awful in daylight, no two ways about it. No accessories out (yet). Phone feels cheap without the battery in it. Once the battery is in it feels much better but still lighter than expecting.

Good side to that is, if I scratch up the rear panel, I can just get a replacement. Or just change out the battery instead of having the wonky monoprice adapter. Huzzah.

ADHD Readers. fruity one is in trouble whether its a direct comparison or not, and my 3gs is on ebay already, good riddance.

Droid Incredible review (Engadget)

Apr 19th 2010 4:26PM Pre-ordered. 3GS is done shortly, and even seeing the new iphone and whats coming in the new OS didn't make me hesitate for a second. My only issue is that I won't be able to use it overseas, but I don't go often enough to justify keeping crappy service for 99.5% of my time in the US.

Can't wait, time to fire up ebay for a sale and then but an micro usb charger/adapters instead of the apple proprietary cords I have lying around everywhere to constantly charge my dying iphone....

HTC Droid Incredible shows up on official Verizon preview page -- coming April 29th (updated) (Engadget)

Apr 14th 2010 10:57AM I don't even care if this is an iphone killer, and I hope there isn't even the comparison. Verizon is an AT&T killer and this phone is finally the one to pull me back away from the crappiest service I have had since the late 90s.

Didn't want the G1, too new, didn't want the N1, too gsm, didn't want the D1 (Droid 1) because the iphone made me realize I didn't want a keyboard. This is the right mix on the right network (for me at least) with the right support (google) and without the current monopolistic tendencies (apple).

I do feel pretty nerdy that this totally just made my week.

Verizon's HTC Incredible gets a user's manual (Engadget)

Apr 8th 2010 11:42AM Hell yes. As soon as this is available the iPhone and AT&T are going to meet mr eBay

iSuppli pegs iPad component costs at as little as $259.60 (Engadget)

Apr 7th 2010 10:31AM "What might seem silly and wasteful at $499 could seem all-too-tempting at $299."

hello nail head, I'm your friendly hammer. Nice to meet you.

Toe Mouse! (Engadget)

Completely agreed. What a freaking cool nerd gadget to have for couch surfing with a bluetooth keyboard and Internet on the plasma and not dealing with a sepaate air mouse or using a crappy trackpad
