Some apps & games stay on my iPhone out of guilt

Earlier today while perusing the feeds, I caught this snippet via DF concerning the Android Market (the app store for Android). The Android Market business and program policies also include an item that says users can return any application for a full refund within 24 hours of the time of purchase. In the absence of […]

iPhone vs. TyTN II Kaiser, which came out on top?

  • October 22nd, 2007

Roughly 20 days ago, I took delivery of a shiny new HTC TyTN II Kaiser (recently re-badged and offered stateside as the at&t Tilt). Similar to the feature packed Nokia N95, HTC’s TyTN II Kaiser pulled out all the stops offering everything you could possibly want in a mobile handset that still managed to fit […]
