Dumb App Of The Day: BroApp

Dumb App Of The Day: BroApp And what's so dumb about this Android app you ask? Well basi­cally it auto­mates sending text messages to your assigned girl­friend (or boyfriend the proto­cols are funda­men­tally gender neutral despite the naming) to make it look like you're inter­ested in her. The makers claim several sophis­ti­cated features like: * Girl­friend … Read More… Share on Tumblrvar dd_offset_from_content = 40;var dd_top_offset_from_content = 20;var dd_override_start_anchor_id = "";var dd_override_top_offset = ""; jQuery(document).ready(function($) { window.setTimeout('loadPinterest_112156()',1000);window.setTimeout('loadTwitter_112156()',1000);window.setTimeout('loadReddit_112156()',1000);window.setTimeout('loadGoogle1_112156()',1000);window.setTimeout('loadTumblr_112156()',1000); }); func­tion loadPinterest_112156(){ jQuery(document).ready(function($) { $.getScript('http://assets.pinterest.com/js/pinit.js'); }); } func­tion loadTwitter_112156(){ jQuery(document).ready(function($) { $('.dd-twitter-112156').remove();$.getScript('http://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js'); }); } func­tion loadReddit_112156(){ jQuery(document).ready(function($) { $('.dd-reddit-112156').remove();$('.DD_REDDIT_AJAX_112156').attr('width','51');$('.DD_REDDIT_AJAX_112156').attr('height','69');$('.DD_REDDIT_AJAX_112156').attr('src','http://www.reddit.com/static/button/button2.html?width=51&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.eoghann.com%2Fopinion%2Fandroid-2&title=Android&newwindow=1'); }); } func­tion loadGoogle1_112156(){ jQuery(document).ready(function($) { $('.dd-google1-112156').remove();$.getScript('https://apis.google.com/js/plusone.js'); }); } func­tion loadTumblr_112156(){ jQuery(document).ready(function($) { $('.dd-pocket-112156').remove();$.getScript('http://platform.tumblr.com/v1/share.js'); }); }

Would Amazon Really Give You A Phone?

There have been rumors for a couple of years now of an Amazon Phone presum­ably running some variant of their forked Kindle Android OS. But the latest rumor is pretty extreme. Not a low cost phone. But a free ($0.00) phone and without requiring a contract. Honestly I'm not sure they could pull that off. They haven't managed to do … Read More…

Would You Buy A Camera For You Smartphone?

So the first images of this concept leaked a few weeks ago but now more infor­ma­tion is emerging. The idea is simple, Sony will build a complete camera into a lens (not actu­ally that hard to do) and the it will wire­lessly connect to your phone using it as the viewfinder. The result should be a far better lens than … Read More…

Do You Want A Phone The Size Of A Tablet

On the left is the Nexus 7. On the right is the Sony Xperia Z Ultra. It's an Android phone. If you thought Samsung's Note line were big, appar­ently that's nothing compared to the 6.4" Xperia Z Ultra. I suppose this might be big enough you wouldn't need the tablet as well… http://​www​.xperi​ablog​.net/​2​0​1​3​/​0​8​/​0​4​/​x​p​e​r​i​a​-​z​-​u​l​t​r​a​-​s​i​z​e​d​-​u​p​-​a​g​a​i​n​s​t​-​t​h​e​-​n​e​x​u​s-7 – 2013/

MotoX-512x460

Maybe It's Time We Changed The Definition of High End?

People complain the Galaxy S4 is slug­gish. Appar­ently the Moto X is smooth as butter. The Moto X is being called a mid-range phone, the GS4 high end. People complain the HTC One's battery life is terrible. Suppos­edly the Moto X has excel­lent battery life. The HTC One is appar­ently a high-end phone. Moto X offers a nearly stock expe­ri­ence, HTC ONe and GS4 are … Read More…

Rough Start For Ouya Game Developers

It seems that sales of games on the Ouya console have got off to a poor start. Now you can't do an apples to apples compar­ison of game sales between Ouya and the estab­lished consoles for all sorts of reasons. It has neither the market pene­tra­tion or the adver­tising reach nor any of the brand name … Read More…
