  • Nexus 7 and iPad mini -- hot tablets for the holiday buying season

    The two hottest tablets this year are the Nexus 7 by Google and the iPad mini by Apple. They are both highly portable and powerful tablets for a decent price. Neither are the most powerful in the Android and iOS stables but they will be highly popular gifts.

    Those finding one of these tablets in their Christmas stocking or under the tree will be looking for good apps. The apps in this collection are a good place to start getting the most use out of the new Nexus 7 or iPad mini.

  • Falcon Pro for Nexus 7

    If the new Nexus 7 owner is looking for a good Twitter client, Falcon Pro is a solid choice. The app makes good use of the high resolution Nexus 7 screen, and the interface is well designed to take advantage of touch control.

  • What is this I see?

    Is this a fairly decent unbiased article by Jim? Good Job man, now you're getting it.
    • Jim is as unbiased as any

      His occasional rant about android is sometimes deserved, but its the price of it being the 'windows of mobile', more flexible and open. I believe android will continue to evolve as its 'complex' design stabilizes and allows it to go beyond what iOS (more limited and therefore refined OS) is capable of. By then apple will have refocused on TVs or something.
      • Yeah Right

        He has shown severe Bias towards Apple in the past year. Back handed compliments to Android when their products are reviewed.

        This one was different.
  • Google+ app is better than the browser version!

    Google's G+ app on Android is easier, faster, and more efficient than its browser counterpart. This is where touch-enabled Chromebooks are really going to shine.
