08/20/2009, HTC looks pretty set on flooding the market with a range of mid-level to high-end handsets, and the Whitestone which was just approved by the FCC would certainly make phoneheads happy!

08/18/2009, The iPhone soap that you see here is definitely way too precious to be used – if we were to get this $8 cleaning bar, we would probably place it behind a glass box in our office, using it only when armageddon occurs and there is no other recourse to keep ourselves clean under all the rubble.
