    [Blog] Android is Finally "Enough", but I Still Miss My iPhone
    I've written a few times on this blog about my trials with Android and dissatisfaction with devices under Google's operating system. The fact is, lack of consistent experience because Google doesn't own the experience, means they will likely never have a leg-up on the experience iOS gives users, considering Apple controls and owns the entire experience in their OS. Google proved me only partly wrong in this though, with their latest release of Jellybean and the Galaxy Nexus, yet I still find myself missing my iPhone. I'll explain. The voice controls are solid. Then there are the apps.

    [Blog] NOOKColor Combines Specialization, Potential & Android
    While you're probably not going to make the NOOKColor your primary Web surfing device, it's great to have in the background if you absolutely must check a few news sites, blogs, or even Twitter. In a world full of multi-purpose gadgets which ping, beep and blink at you to signal more messages coming your way to demand your attention, there's something remarkably comforting about a device like Barnes & Noble's NOOKColor , which is designed not to distract you with many things at once, but instead, to bring a powerful reading experience. Electronic book readers are not new, of course.

    And yet the highest value interactions I’m having in terms of in-depth knowledge sharing and information which provides direct results for me comes from a couple of small subgroups on each, and a couple of far, far smaller forums, dedicated to relevant topics such as SEO, or Blogging. I made a note to respond to a recent post by David Cushman , in which he talks about the value formula applied to cities by a theoretical physicist, and applies it to social networks and particularly Google +.

My publisher at a newsletter publishing company where I worked ten years ago used to always correct me. would argue with him that the sentence doesn’t sound right when it’s grammatically correct.
