I am not sure what it is like in your part of the world. In my backyard, LG is making a serious run at Samsung.

The company has strayed from the path.

They all do, eventually, if they're not careful.

Benchmarks have always been controversial. It is time we change the way we use them.

Definitely - the saying "specs don't matter" would be in my opinion a shortening of "specs don't matter with hardware from the same generation".

An iPhone 5S vs. a Galaxy S4 vs. a Moto X and so on will be "roughly equivalent" in normal use - only the "spec freaks" really care, in other words, not John Q. Public.

I am with you on the iPhone 5S / small smartphone thing here.

I'll admit that looking at a Moto X, I can see the appeal (very nice phone) and the "specs" (evil word!) of the Nexus 5 combined with the fact that it is slightly smaller than the Nexus 4 (if you believe that leaked manual) make it look interesting - but, I will stand my ground here.

I'd rather have an iOS device and an Android device in my daily carry bag, so for me at present that is going to be (once I save my nickels) an iPhone 5S and my Nexus 7. The Nexus 7 may end up being replaced at some point, we will see, not sure with what as of yet, but the 8-inch form seems a better fit in my hands for a small tablet.

Who knows! Hopelessly addicted to tech...

BlackBerry definitely has some good ideas for UI and for hardware, so I hope they stick around.

Really, I think we need or should have all of the players. A Lumia 1020 is a great phone, for instance, in spite of the Windows hatred - spend some time with the UI and the brilliance just grabs you. Similarly, iOS 7 has some great ideas when we forget about the "noise" concerning motion sickness etc., Android has lots of high points and so on.

Finally - yes, defaults matter, that's what most people use.

Rooting and flashing, installing third-party keyboards or launchers, all the stuff that people on Google+ do - well, John Q. Public doesn't do that.

He has to take John Jr. and Jane to soccer, and pick up dinner on the way, so he just wants his phone to work so he can get on with is life.

It never occurred to me that the US Constitution did not have a provision on re-enacted budgets.

I found a fairly interesting watch from a small UK based company called AVI-8. Given the staggering number of watches offered by the company, manufacture is outsourced to a third party. Most likely a China based one. Still, Being a fan of Pilots watches and...

With Apple not playing for a larger market share with a cheaper iPhone, and Windows Phone gaining some serious ground this year, a fight for number 2 may be brewing. Still China and the US proves elusive to Windows Phone.

Probably will stick to my carriers music store. They also give me 7-12 freebies a month depending on my phone usage.

My only complaint is I have to Tag and place album covers myself. But no restrictions.

Developers definitely need this kind of information to understand how their work will function, how to optimize and improve things.

People who just use the technology, perhaps not as much.

On paper, one piece of hardware may eclipse another, but on the end it is how one uses it and the important factors vary with the individual.

I found this interesting.

Looks like Windows is still the best choice for hybrid computer designs.

Sometimes I wonder what the people in Google are thinking. It is like to have to be drag into expanding Android into new territory. Google did not support the first Android tablet and now it is not supporting the Android hybrids.

The author is correct, time someone forked Android for hybrids.

That would work for a DIY version for sure.

I mean, I'm sure Google could do it in under a week. Maybe they already have tested it.

Accommodations and use of facilities can get a bit pricey, but if you a looking for a nice peaceful beach resort to relax in, this is the best one I have been too. So it's worth the small premium. Staff is very helpful and friendly. Everyone is so polite. The food is very reasonably priced, and very good too. The food is not cheap, but when the Php300+ meals come, they are bigger than I expected, tasty and are professionally plated. Hats off to the Chef. I will be going back.

This branch no longer exists. It's now a Crave Burger branch.
