New iPhone: Day One July 14th, 2008 @ 9:24 am PST
Seventeen hours have passed since I upgraded to the new iPhone. Can it possibly be too early for me to make sweeping generalizations and pass judgment? No. I didn’t think so either.

Blackberry Pearl Keyboard Lock November 8th, 2007 @ 9:05 am PST
I’ve had a Blackberry Pearl for a few months now and, in general, I love it. It’s a great phone. I love that I can check scores on ESPN and use Google maps and — as a surprise bonus — I can send and receive phone calls and text messages. Here’s what bugs me: The […]
Motorola HS801 Bluetooth Connection March 8th, 2007 @ 6:58 am PST
The first thing I did after crossing the marathon finish line was call my girlfriend so she could come get me. It was the last call I would make with my trusty RAZR. My hands were slick with sweat and the phone was coated with the salt and grime that had evaporated from my body […]

I used to work for a paging company about 600 years ago. InterLink Paging. This was back in the dark ages, when mobile phones were still the size of shoe boxes and it actually made sense to own (or lease) a “beeper”. I constantly receive phone calls for previous owners of my numbers. Anyway. We […]
