Big Phone Haters To The Left

Galaxy Note and Samsung Keyboard

Jordan Crook, in her “Big Phones? So Over.” post on TechCrunch today, says she wants manufacturers to stop making larger phones. Why? Jordan doesn’t like them. And neither should you.

Andy Rubin by Joi Ito

I’ve had my iPad 2 now for more than a couple of weeks. I was lucky enough to snag one on launch day at our local Best Buy. I get a lot of people asking me two questions? “Is that the iPad 2?” or just “Is that an iPad?” and some still ask “Is that […]
