When they invented tinfoil, did they purposely make it out of the noisiest material possible to prank people in the future who wake up and simply want to heat up a slice of leftover pizza?

Im disappointed with htc and samsung
They have no innovation anymore
The s5 is a better option water resistant removable backs and sd card support
The only thing changed in these phones is processors

Story
Tagline
Senior Associate Editor at TechRadar.com with a degree in Journalism and passion for wearable tech and TVs
Introduction
I'm the Senior Associate Editor at TechRadar with a passion for wearable technology and TVs. I reviewed Google Glass and Chromecast along with Fitbit Force and Jawbone Up24. As an owner of both an iPhone and Android phone and tablet, I make myself familiar with both mobile operating systems.

I graduated from Penn State with a journalism degree and minored in history. I know the news that matters to people’s lives. I’m world-wise and politically-savvy. At age 14, I started video game news and reviews site Gaming Target, then moved on extend my writing portfolio to... G4TV.com, UGO.com, GamesRadar, GamePro, Machinima.com, Best Buy's @Gamer Magazine, PlayStation: The Official Magazine, Ticket (part of Montgomery Newspapers) and The Lion’s Roar, where I achieved the position of editor during my third semester with the college paper.
