Noah talks Android on CBS 5: Bay Sunday

Android really is becoming a household name/concept, and I’m glad to see this kind of coverage on a local news show. But Cliq and Hero? Hmm. I’m not really sure why those phones were chosen, but they are well established and can be had relatively cheap for the casual smartphone user or feature phone convert. Noah’s getting to be as natural on the tele as… Read more

Motorola Cliq (T-Mobile): questions and requests

I’m back with another questions and requests series, and this time it’s all about MotoBlur. Well, that’s actually just where I thought the focus would be.
