I didn’t think it would be possible for me to be any more excited for the upcoming X-Men flick, but then I watched the third trailer. The final theatrical trailer for X-Men: Days of Future Past does an insanely good job of building anticipation for the film along with divulging just the right amount of the plot to get potential movie goers excited. Days of Future Past is based off the story of the same name from the...Continue Reading
In an effort to appease the harshest camera critics, Google has released a standalone camera app to the Google Play Store. Now, before you get your hopes up, let’s get one thing out the way now: Phones like the Nexus 5 or the HTC One won’t see an increase in camera quality. Instead, Google focused on cleaning up the busy interface and simplifying the experience all while adding new features to boot.
I really dig the new interface, although...Continue Reading
T-Mobile USA just keeps the hits-a-comin’ as they rolled out part 3 of their 3-of-3 Uncarrier initiative. CEO John Legere posted on his blog earlier today that T-Mobile intends on shaking up the wireless game even further, this time by abolishing something that carriers have profited off of for years; rate plan overage fees.

The HTC One was one of last year’s most interesting handsets. It was met with critical acclaim and even the most harsh HTC critic had nothing but praise for it. The handset was well designed, well made, and unique as it was unlike any other handset available. There was one glaring flaw with the HTC One however, and that one flaw was the biggest feature that HTC chose to highlight; the camera. Today, I get to check out...Continue Reading

Riding a wave of momentum into 2014, Nokia looks to continue their reemergence as a big name player amongst an already overcrowded smartphone scene.

CM Punk, one of the WWE’s biggest and brightest stars, unceremoniously left the company following the Royal Rumble pay-per-view back in January. Originally believed to be a work (part of WWE scripts), many speculated that Punk would return soon after taking a brief break to rest his bones. It soon became a possibility that this was, in fact, a real exit and Punk had truly “took his ball and went home.” There were more and more reports about Vince McMahon...Continue Reading
The original Nexus 7 was one of my absolute favorite tablets from 2012 because it was the perfect combination of style, size, and function. Google and Asus followed suit with the 2013 edition which added a higher quality screen, faster processor, more internal storage, and dual cameras. This also marked the debut of LTE on a Nexus tablet, as the previous models all chose to forgo this option. Today, I’m checking out the 2013 Nexus 7 tablet laced...Continue Reading
After having one of the most lengthy relationships in the business, Blackberry has announced that they will no longer partner with T-Mobile.

T-Mobile launched an incentive that seen Blackberry customers be rewarded for switching from their Blackberry devices into other manufacturers products. After a somewhat irate response...Continue Reading
