[Review] Coming soon - Moto 360 review

I was lucky enough to lay hands on a Moto 360 a few weeks ago and I'll have a review up soon.  For those that have one (and even those that don't) I've always been of the opinion that wearable tech is the direction we are all going, so why not hop aboard?  I know Sean doesn't necessarily agree with me on this point, but that's the beauty of having TWO tech geeks.  ;)

More info on my time with the Moto 360 smartwatch soon!

[Review] Final thoughts on the G3

As you've probably already read (and, if by chance you haven't, you can catch up here on my 10 days with the G3) I've been using the latest flagship from LG as my new daily driver mobile phone.  I've really got nothing but great things to say about it, and to sum it all up, if you are in the market for a new smartphone, you should give the G3 a long look.

Having said that, I wanted to offer up a few final thoughts on the G3, especially for those who are ready to make the plunge and buy a new device soon.

[Rumor] Newest iPhone to feature version with sapphire glass?

Apple may be giving an all new meaning to "high end" when they release their new devices in early September.  According to a report from the Wall Street Journal, Apple may be releasing a version of the new iPhone 6 with a sapphire glass display.  Sapphire crystal is only below diamond in its hardness rating and could be a big step forward in reducing scratches on mobile device screens and the need for screen protectors.

[News] Apple's latest iPhone probably announced on Sept 9

Not to be outdone by Samsung's Note 4 demo date, it appears that Apple has set some time aside in early September to announce the launch of (at least) one version of the next gen iPhone, dubbed "iPhone 6."  The new device (which probably doesn't look anything like the photo shown) is rumored to sport a larger 4.7" display and is likely to be only 6mm thick.  Check out the full link to the story on PhoneArena.com here.

[News] New Moto 360 smartwatch details leaked

For those to whom a smartwatch seems like your particular cup of brandy, the Moto 360 is probably the thing you've been digging on for a long, long time.  I say a long time since the good lord only knows when it will be released.  But now, thanks to a tipster known as "Mister Gadget" we have some more pics and details about this beast piece of tech "coming soon" from Motorola.

[News] Samsung Galaxy Note 4 announcement likely to come on Sept 3

Word is out - invitations to the Samsung Unpacked 2014 event have started to arrive.  And at this event, the long awaited successor to the popular Galaxy Note 3 is expected to make its debut.  The Note 4 is rumored to have specs "much better than the Galaxy S5" - which should include the Snapdragon 805 processor and a Quad HD display.  In a time where 5.5" displays on mobile devices are growing more commonplace, I'm sure that Samsung will be happy to have theirs hit store shelves.

With the G3 just released, and the rumored iPhone 6 release no doubt coming later on this year, could Sammy have picked just the right time to launch their new phablet?  Time will tell.

[Review] 10 days with LG's newest flagship - the G3

While I’m not ready to give my full review of the “latest and greatest” Android flagship to hit the market, I have spent 10 days now with the G3 as my daily driver.  So what you will be getting in this installment from the Two Tech Geeks is more like a first impressions and mini-review, with a little more in depth info to follow in the coming days.  But for now, sit down and hold on - you are about to be taken for a ride by one of the most powerful Android devices to hit all the major carriers in some time.

Coming soon...LG G3 review

Greetings fellow fun (and tech) seekers!

Just a quick note that I have laid my hands on the Verizon variant of LG's G3 superphone, and I'll have a few of my thoughts up in a detailed review soon.  I'm going to take the weekend to play around with it, but so far so good.  This is a big device, but those of you who like/love the G2 (and other 5"+ screen phones) will probably want to give the G3 a look.

Stay tuned for more news...

[Review] LG GPad 8.3 tablet

Recently, chance and good fortune happened to land me a 1st generation iPad mini.  While very grateful for such a princely gift, I (of all people) had no use for such an Apple product.  So, armed with some courage and a good story, I found a local merchant that was willing to swap me out for my choice of Android tablet.  I had thought to find myself the proud owner of a 32GB Nexus 7 (2013) but at the 11th hour found myself going with the LG GPad 8.3 instead.  As those of you who follow this blog might know, I am rather fond of LG's most recent tech products (see my review of the G2 here) and thought to give their new tablet a try.  Is it as outstanding a product as their flagship superphone?  Read below to get my thoughts!

[Op-Ed] The benefit to rooting an Android phone

Once upon a time, I was the proud owner of a Blackberry Pearl.  (Don’t laugh)  I had worked my way up at a previous employer to be in a position to recommend the products the company purchased.  Since mobile e-mail was king, we ended up purchasing a fleet of Blackberry devices.  My first smartphone impressed me so much that when I left the company I decided to buy one for myself.  I owned two before the Pearl was released, and I really though I had found the perfect smartphone for me.  The size, form factor, and RIM’s e-mail integration made this a real winner in my book.  Some days, I miss the feeling I had when I first got it…there’s nothing like the thrill of buying your next tech toy.  This was right about the time the iPhone began to gain traction as an all touch screen smartphone that had a host of other features that a Blackberry couldn’t hope to match.

[Review] The iPhone 5S (from an Android users point of view)

As an Android enthusiast, I constantly hear the strident call of those on the other side of the smartphone debate that I am “wrong” for bashing the iPhone and, along with it, iOS.  And I am happy to defend from all comers the Android platform and what I perceive as its superiority.  So it came as a great blow to my personal belief system when my daytime employer suddenly was to provide me with an iPhone 5S as my work phone.  This was to replace my trusty Blackberry which (let’s face it) was dying a slow hideous death.  So grudgingly, I accepted my new tech, and thought this would be an ideal chance for me to give it and Apple fan boys everywhere a fair shake by spending a weekend getting to know the “real” Apple.  Will I be converted?  Will my passion for all things Android taint my desire to use the 5S at all?  Read on to find out!
