I usually fly...

electricbern Re:I don't fly anymore... (549 comments)

So true. Too bad not flying limits your options quite a bit. A meeting on other state tomorrow? A vacation on the other side of the pond?

CES, Reporter Breaks "Unbreakable" Mobile Phone

electricbern Awkward (316 comments)

The "unbreakable" phone being actually breakable is nothing extraordinary, but the awkward position the reporter puts the guy on is priceless. And I have to tell you the reporter was pretty gentle with the phone.

Droid Touchscreen Less Accurate Than iPhone's

electricbern What's important (198 comments)

Although drawling lines might be important to some, what really matters to most smartphone users is how the phone responds to misclicks. Is it able to detect it and adjust accordingly? There is more to it then the accuracy of the screen. You are using your phone while standing or walking so even if the screen is 100% accurate you probably won't be. What kind of correction algorithm the phone has to compensate for that?
Of course creating a considerate test is too much trouble and just saying that the iPhone touchscreen is more accurate then Google's scores you plenty of apple-love.
