  Done. I’m done fucking around with Motorola. I’ll be the first to admit that I was one of the people that loved the Razr V3. I put that little aluminum clamshell through a lot and it kept working. As much as I loved that thing, everyone else hated it. I still don’t know why, […]

It is said in the Old Testament that the earth was created in seven days. That’s a pretty awesome thing to accomplish in a week, regardless of whether or not you believe it, right? It’s not every day that someone wakes up on Monday and says, “man I’m bored, I think I’m going to create […]
