re: Why would anyone choose to own a Blackberry? - ZereauxSum
I never thought there was really anything wrong with Blackberries except for the fact that they aren't really made for consumers. They're work phones. Not my cup of tea but I won't bash them. They seem to be good for what they were designed for. ...

re: LG G3 to hit AT&T stores this week - ZereauxSum
Yeah I've seen a couple of complaints about the sharpening and the colors. Apparently they don't seem as vibrant as say, an S4/S5 and there is apparently a slight yellowish tint to everything? It's hard to tell if these are first world, OCD problems so I'm still going to go check it out tomorrow....

re: iPhone 4 replacement screen help - ZereauxSum
Is your old screen still operable, like cracked but still powers on? See if your cousin can test with the old one. If it's a pinched cable the colors will be inverted on your old screen as well. And yes, it's easy to screw it up. I replaced my old 4S screen twice. The second time I thought I ...

re: LG G3 to hit AT&T stores this week - ZereauxSum
I would think so but just to be safe, I'll probably go a little out if the way to a corporate store (not an authorized retailer). Thing is, LG has done almost zero advertising of this phone, so I can't see tons of people beating down the door to get it Friday. ...

All right, I do have to admit that I haven't done as much research about this as you guys have. (I only tend to look deeply into issues I've personally had).
