This falls in to "Try at your own risk" territory! But it sounds fun anyway :)
 
Feeling adventurous enough to try this on your shiny new VZW S 4? +Derek Gelinas lays it out.

The "Google branded" Samsung Galaxy S4 is really appealing and may by my next "Nexus" device. Oh, and welcome Derek to the team!

Eh, the hardware is still better on the GS4 but double the price better? Not so much

Uhm, Yea, probably a bad idea...
 
While making BBM available on Android and iOS was a bombshell, it will more than likely get overshadowed by Google's barrage of goodies tomorrow.

Neat, compact design. The screen demos seem a little sluggish in parts but it seems a refreshing interface design

For me personally, I'd seriously consider Google's version of the S IV simply because it's stock Android and carrier free.
 
Verizon peeps finally get the Galaxy S4 today. Who's getting one? Our own +Derek Gelinas clues us in on a possible bootloader unlock to come.

Is it bad that I constantly bounce around between Facebook (chatheads), Hangouts, and Skype? Sometimes all at once? lol
 
So many choices as of late. Which one do you prefer? Vote in our poll!

In this new, weekly feature we want to give our readers the opportunity to provide some point-and-click style input on some of the questions we have been pondering. Got a great poll idea? Drop us a note! With this past week holding two major developer conferences, there seemed to be a theme at ...

If FB ever integrates a video option in its mobile messenger, it will probably own everyone else. For some reason though, it hasn't gone with Skype as it has on the desktop. Given the reach they both have, I thought that would have been a layup.

Lots of good stuff today, but not enough to take me away from Android. 
 
A wrap up of today's announcements from BlackBerry Live by +Andrew Allen  #bb1 #blackberry
As we speak, BlackBerry is wrapping up day one of a 3 day event for developers in Orlando, FL. Many missteps and poor decisions have been made in previous years, but it seems Thorsten Heins is determined to turn the ship around. I know that this revamp can't be made in one event, and BlackBerry ...

In playing with the original Playbook at CES (Consumer Electronics Show) back when it was first introduced, I'll have to agree with +Andrew Allen  here. Many comparisons to webOS were made back then, and they still stand today.
 
We think the title speaks for itself. Read on for  +Andrew Allen 's thoughts on why... Do you agree?   #webos  #blackberry #blackberry10 #palm  
In the span of around 20 days back in 2010, two of THE smartphone pioneers were a part of major purchasing agreements in the mobile industry. On April 9, 2010, BlackBerry announced the acquisition of QNX software. This purchase was made to find a new, fresh take on the company's ailing ...

I bumped it up to 3 stars from 2 only because the food was actually pretty good. Wasn't off to a good start when the server asked if a Sam Adams Boston was a beer(?!). The wait was unusually long considering it was a week night with many tables open. I was also bugged by a fly at my table and overheard employees swearing at each other near the kitchen. Beware: the tables have a glass top covering the cloth which made cutting a steak on a slippery plate quite the challenge- I had to place the plate on my napkin and ask for another one. Overall I would recommend for the food but beware of poor service.
