I mentioned in my review of the HTC One S that the phone is unduly burdened with a number of T-Mobile apps that are less than useful. (We call them CRAPPS.) There’s no way to remove pre-installed apps, but on the One S you can disable them. Disabling hides the app from Home screens and […]

Galaxy Player 3.6 as Bluetooth handset

Samsung packed a lot of extra little features into their new Galaxy Players in an attempt to make them ultra versatile.
