About a month ago I got to use the LG Optimus G on the Sprint network. Optimus G is a newer Android phone that has power and storage to rival the future designs of the smartphone. A phone with enough power to not only get work done or the ability to do two things at once but the battery power to stay functional for the day. The Good – LG Optimus G Let’s start with the processor – a 1.5 GHz quad-core Snapdragon processor. This processor will let you not only record video and pull up your favorite apps but...

What to Expect from BlackBerry 10

Image source Flickr With 2013 around the corner, one of the greatest things to expect out of the coming holiday season is the impressive number of smartphones available to consumers all over the world. From the iPhone 5 to Android’s new JellyBean OS and beyond, if there’s one thing consumers and business people alike won’t have to worry about, it’s the number of options they have to choose for a new mobile phone. With all these options though, it’s surprising that there is not as much talk of Research in Motion’s latest forthcoming innovation: BlackBerry 10.   Image Source Brownstock...

First Look: HP X576DW Officejet Pro MFP

If you are a small-to-medium business (SMB) you try to find items for your office that don’t cost you an arm and a leg. It seems printing (especially color printing) is always a problem for cost and ease of use. HP has been looking into this problem and come out with the X series multi-function printer (MFP). The officejet pro x576dw MFP is a desktop printer that can print up to 70 pages per minute in general office mode.

Then I got laid off from my job. It was literally the day before launch that I was called into a room and told my services were no...
