[quote]Again though, I highly highly doubt it's 5.9 or close, I'd guess 5.5 max.[/quote]
If it's really going to be made by Motorola I'd bet it'll be in the 5.1 to 5.4 range. This is what's being leaked for the upcoming Moto X+1 and Verizon's Droid flagship series so a similar size would make se...

Folks need to be mindful that when you speak of "Android", it's an operating system -and- more often than not, running a customized version by whatever manufacturer made the particular phone. It's silly to criticize a bad "Android" phone when it could be any number of manufacturers and available a...

The SEC Network FAQ now states that viewers using an approved provider will be able to access network via the WatchEspn app. They had originally said it would be available for streaming using an app, "similar" to WatchEspn. Seems they've decided to simply add a channel to the existing & proven rel...

Short answer, no. If (or, when) they pick up the SEC Network that will change - carrying it will entail a much broader package from Disney/ABC/ESPN and will include WatchEspn as part of it. ...

I'd do some homework before jumping on the One Plus. It's being raped on the tech forums for a variety of major shortcomings and any users that complain on their own user forum are being banned. Just as one example I saw is a user with a new phone arriving without (as in NONE) volume control and, ...

Bama fans are cult - in the literal sense. I've came to expect the lowest in human behavior from them. Alabama is a historically great football program but they could sure use a more intelligent (or perhaps, less idiotic) fan base. Since I'm watching Finebaum, cue the next neanderthal Bama calle...

Lots of indicators lately that DTV & Comcast are very close. The last few smaller cable companies that have closed the deal have increased the pressure on the major players to get it done so it's looking better every day for those saddled with the foot-draggers.

I, and from their comments so did the co-hosts, think he eembarrassed himself with math that just didn't add up.

If you want "true" home security, I'd recommend a good, reliable, local company that is affiliated with dedicated & proven monitoring centers. A few selected exterior openings, a motion detector & keypad don't a security system make. If you're serious, hire a pro. Never (and I do mean NEVER) would ...
