Backgrounds - Wallpaper - Alright Alright!

One of the first applications that's a must for any Android phone is to definitely download Stylem Media's "Backgrounds". This is a marketplace full of great desktop backgrounds, the app $ Free, the backgrounds $ Free. As you search you might have to see some based advertising however once the background is set that all goes away. Now what makes Stylem stand out from the crowd is the Photography Custom Pics. In the center there is a icon looks like a photo. Once this is selected it will pull you to some Photoshop type art that you can add to your own photos etc. I quite frankly like the Mad Hatter Hat. You can also set the wall-paper to change slide-show style and set you favorites however this will more than likely tax your battery usage. The only thing that needs some improvement is the keyword search. If I type a word search sometimes the results are all over the board.

4.5 out of 5 Stars but a must have!

First App Review

Pandora is an automated music recommendation and Internet radio service created by the Music Genome Project. Users enter a song or artist that they enjoy, and the service responds by playing selections that are musically similar. Users provide feedback on approval or disapproval of individual songs, which Pandora takes into account for future selections.

12-09-2009 I put "Pandora" to the test. I have a cassette deck (*insert pun") to 1/8th jack in my 2001 Lexus IS 300 Nakamichi CD/Tape deck with no aux input. I loaded up some of my favorite artist Sublime, Neil Young, (Hed) pe , Slipknot to name a few. Let me just say i have never had so much fun driving in rush hour traffic. It's like Pandora is a DJ and only taking my requests! The stream came in near CD quality as I drove in estimated 30 mi radius I never lost service jumping from cell tower to cell tower. The best part of this was it leads me to new music in the similar genres that I might have just missed. Android 3030 Thanks you PANDORA!

5 out of 5 !

In with the Magic, Out with the ...CLIQ

So, yesterday I went and returned my horrible Motorola Cliq android phone. If you want a phone that is loaded with crap that you don't need buy the cliq. I seriously thought it was a windows mobile phone it was so locked down. Since when is it hard to HACK/ROOT AN OPEN SOURCE CODE?!?! WOW.

So, i took it back and got the Black MyTouch3g aka HTC Magic, its the lil' brother to the HTC Hero, I see it as my baby iPhone!

I can't give much details as i've had this for less than 12 hours, so far it's awesome and destroys the cliq. Not having a physical keyboard is okay as this screen is larger, thus making the keyboard larger on screen.

It feels more like plastic vs. the titanium casing of the cliq, but then again that made the cliq weigh almost an ounce more, which is a lot in phone weight.

So far so good with the Magic, stay tuned.
