The Geek in Me

Ben —  January 6, 2011 — 4 Comments

So I’ve decided to create the new category called “Geek Speak.” I find this appropriate to add now being since this is the week of CES.

I’m a long time Verizon customer, and have owned many smartphones from Palm, Windows mobile, and Blackberry. I’m currently in an Android phase with the original Droid being my weapon of choice, I’m rooted and am loving it. I’ve almost converted my entire family to Android and they’re all loving it (so far). So, what am I looking forward to in 2011 as far as mobile devices go? An LTE and/or a nice Tegra 2 Device, such as one of these:


(full Verizon press release here)

I’m not sure exactly what or how much I’ll put into this category. I’ll tell you what I’m Good at (not an expert): Google, Chrome and Android integration/troubleshooting, App suggestions, and a variety of other computer/techie kinds of things. A lot of what I post here will probably be regurgitated from one of the items I view in my Google Reader list. Maybe I’ll turn your comments into a “how-to” post with detailed instructions and pictures if needed.  I might also post on how I get those “sweet deals” from different places like Best Buy, or even how I “communicate” with the Verizon CS reps over the phone to get what I want, just because.

What do y’all think, Yes? No? Put some suggestions in the comments below and we’ll see where this goes. Because this is for fun (again with the Nacho Libre reference).

Links for info to the phones:

Samsung 4G LTE Smartphone (no name yet)

  1. Gadget geekiness and Nacho Libre quotes? You are a gentleman and a scholar, my friend.

  2. Thanks for this info, I really trust your judgement since you test out everything way before we do. Keep this one going for sure.
