Google's Nexus 4 Smartphone Gets a Price Drop, Now Starting at $199! PDF Print E-mail
August 28, 2013


Google has just announced a price drop for their current Android Flagship Smartphone, the Nexus 4. This is great news for anyone looking to upgrade but don't want to deal with the carriers' contracts and other ripoffs.


It has been a year since the release of the Nexus 4 so the price drop was expected but happened a lot sooner than when it was thought to have occurred.


The Nexus 4 provides a High-End Up-to-Date Android Smartphone at a very reasonable price. The Nexus 4 now starts at $199 for the 8GB model and $249 for the 16GB model.


Most high-end smartphones cost $199 or $249 subsidized with a Contract...this means that the phone is not actually that price and the contract forces you to pay more. Most phones are $600-$800 if you buy them without a contract.

Why HTC & Verizon equals Smartphone Hell - by a Frustrated Thunderbolt Owner PDF Print E-mail

I am a long time user of both HTC and Verizon but I've decided that as long as either company continue the path they are currently on, I will never purchase a single device or service plan from them again. This blog post is basically just me ranting about both companies and why I think no one should use either and of course alternatives to both.

[FIXED] Error on MoboPlayer Resulting with Crashing Gingerbread PDF Print E-mail

Update: I never received a response from the developers of MoboPlayer but as of their latest update to the app it appears that they have fixed this problem.


I just updated to the latest version of Moboplayer and I was introduced to a very cool idea for their video player, Window Mode. This allows you to play a video in an overlay on top of the rest of your phone so you can do other stuff while you watch/listen to your desired media. So I decided to use this to watch a podcast while I did some other stuff but I didn't want it to be in the way much at all so I started tapping the "minus" button to make the video as small as possible but if you tap it too much you get a terrible surprise, an UNUSABLE PHONE.
