Pushing the limits of the terms “4G” and “world’s most powerful” is the new Motorola Atrix 4G ($TBA). Running Android 2.2 and packing a host of high-end features like a 1 GHz dual-core processor, a “qHD” 960 x 540 screen, 1 GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage with a microSD slot for expansion, HSPA+, front- and rear-facing cameras, HD video capture, a biometric fingerprint reader for secure access, dual mics for noise-reduction, 2.4GHz and 5GHz Wi-Fi 802.11n support, and a 1930 mAh battery, the Atrix also works with a new “laptop dock” for expanded multi-tasking and browsing with a full version of Firefox, which we feel is it’s most revolutionary feature. Looks pretty sweet to us.
Maybe to try and take people’s minds off their spotty service AT&T has announced some free WiFi spots to ring in the new year. If your gonna be in Times Square, NYC they are expanding the “hotzone” to the northern area of the square. They are also adding WiFi around Rockefeller Center ,St. Pats Cathedral and San Francisco’s Embarcadero Center. The more free WiFi the better. However, if you are one the nuts or idiots that is actually in Times Square for new years your focus should definitely not be on your phone or free WiFi. Your focus should be 1) what babe/guy you’re gonna kiss when the ball drops 2) Making sure you have a some booze or drug of choice and 3) How are you gonna pee your pants with no one noticing because you are cattle herded in the square with no place to move. Happy New Year!
Due to an overwhelming of status updates on facebook last night saying “What is Kik?” we did some research. We were introduced to the new application for iphone, android, and blackberry users and did a little hands on work for our readers. First, here’s how the app works: Once you download the application, it checks your address book and recommends the friends and other contacts you are likely to know who already have downloaded Kik. You can then start chatting with them immediately. Like IM, it’s asynchronous, meaning it lets you see messages immediately, including when the person you’re chatting with is typing. Additionally, it lets you know when they’ve actually read their message.
Check out our final verdict and screen-shots of the app in action below.
Researching and trying to make a decision on what new phone to buy can be an exhausting task. How good is the network it’s offered on? What options for apps are there? How long is the battery life? Will it get me laid? Wait what? Let’s face it, a phone is as much a status symbol as the car your drive. The same sub conscious sexual reason we may buy a nice car can be equated to the same reason we may buy a phone we don’t really need. But I’m not here to knock our sub conscious sexual reasons that drive most of our existence. Especially us dudes, the opposite sex is the reason behind pretty much every decision we make. With that said the heads at wired.com threw up this graph illustrating the findings of OKcupid.com’s study as to which phone is more likely to score guys and gals a good ol fashion crush fest. By age 30 Iphone users took the cake with an average of 12 sexual partners while Droid users were left holding more than their phone with an average of only 6 partners. Best Quote from wired.com blog writer: “Finally, statistical proof that iPhone users aren’t just getting fucked by Apple.”
