As part of the forces driving the Cast of Dads to greatness, we are always looking for corporate sponsors who are looking to have engaging, innovative and even funny promotion of their products or services. For Mother’s Day this year, Motorola sponsored our most recent episode of the Cast of Dads (we even hosted a giveaway). As part of our sponsorship, all of the Dads were loaned DROID RAZR and we were told that the sky was the limit for what we could do with these snazzy Android smartphones. The only requirement was that we create some sort of a …

Has Apple Peaked? Their Ego Sure Hasn’t!

As I prep for covering MacWorld Expo 2010, I decided to take a step back and truly think about Apple a bit more. It wasn’t that many years ago that people were saying their doom was inevitable. Back then, their products were less than stellar and splintered and people figured that they were on their last legs. However, through that careful working of Steve Jobs and an effective management team, Apple has come to be known as a leading, innovative technology company. When they breath, others stop breathing, when they move, others jump out of the way and when they …

I just bought a burrito just so that I could hold it to warm my hands. Yes, it’s still cold here in the Bay Area. But the Tech News is “hot” as always: Hands-on Chrome beta for Mac “Google released the first beta build of its Chrome browser for Mac and Linux earlier today, and it’s hard not to be impressed when putting the Mac version through its paces. Chrome for Mac still lacks some of the key features that are currently available in the Windows beta, but this is a browser that most people should feel comfortable using.” (source: …

A Week with the Verizon/Motorola DROID (By an iPhone Addict)

In Apple, Cellular, Consumer Electronics, Gadgets, General, Hardware, iPhone, Review by Michael Sheehan21 Comments

This past week, I decided to find out what the hype was all about regarding the Droid. Launched just a few weeks ago, the Droid has been positioned as a potential iPhone-killer. Being an avid iPhone user (but still someone open to new, better or different devices), I wanted to truly test the Droid out to find out what the hype was all about. Even before the Droid was launched, Verizon initiated a series of “attack campaigns” targeted at the iPhone. These “iDon’t” ads really helped to delineate the differences between the two companies (Google and Apple) from an Operating …
