Post image for Unboxing Pictures Of The Android Galaxy S3 And First Impressions

The folks at AT&T have sent us the Galaxy S3 for review and so far, we like the phone a lot. The LTE speed was phenomenal when we tested it on one of AT&T’s new regions and there is no doubt that this device is blazingly fast. Unfortunately, the Galaxy S3 has some quirks that we are not sure if they attributed to Android or Samsung but it has not hurt our overall impressions. Finally, the camera is blazingly fast and we can really see why many people should get this phone.  Currently AT&T is selling the Galaxy S3 is $199.00 with a two year contract and comes in Pebble Blue, White and Garnet Red.

Samsung Galaxy Note

AT&T has sent us the very divisive Samsung Galaxy Note for review which is one of their newest 4G LTE Smarphones running Android. The Samsung Galaxy Note straddles the line between phone and tablet. It has an ultra thin 9.65mm thickness which is almost identical to the iPhone until you see the mind blowing 5.3 inch display. The Galaxy Note won’t fit in the pocket of skinny jeans then again you will have no problem catching up on Amazon VOD, Hulu, or NetFlix on this brilliant display.

Android Mobile Data Usage

Surely one of my favorite features of the Samsung Galaxy Nexus is the ability to show your data usage over a monthly cycle. In the data usage area, accessed via Settings | Data Usage, you can set a mobile data limit and track your data usage by application. While the Data usage feature is not an exact measurement, it does give you a good idea how close you are to your data cap. This is a feature of the Ice Cream Sandwich version of Android (4.0), and will be available regardless of your carrier once you upgrade.

My Smart Hands

One of the many goals of a parent  is to teach our children effective ways to communicate.  Because infants and babies haven’t yet developed the ability to speak, it can be difficult, at times, to understand what they need or want.

Sign Language, on the other hand, is a skill, that children as young as six or seven months old can use effectively and My Smart Hands for iOS and Adroid is an app that can help children communicate with their parents long before they start to master verbal communication…

Motorola Droid RAZR Review

Motorola Droid RAZR

OK, let’s get this out of the way right up front: This phone is so thin it could almost double for a letter-opener. I have to admit that I had my worries that I would break the device in half, but nothing could be further from the truth. This was a fun review for me because I knew that I would be purchasing one of the two phones review by SMR this week. In the end, I did not chose this phone, but had it been the only choice, I believe I would have been very happy indeed with the results. The Motorola Droid RAZR is an amazing piece of technology and it speaks very well for the future of Motorola in the Android ecosystem.

AwardWallet

When you join your first reward program you don’t have visions of how many points you might let expire unused in that loyalty program. The vast majority of reward points, however,  go unused. With just one membership reward programs are easy to manage, although, over time, the list balloons increasing the management complexity by a order of magnitude. Membership programs tend to  become “out of sight, out of mind”, and, this is why points expire.

Imagine the complexity of tracking membership programs from  American Airlines, Delta Airlines, JetBlue, Virgin Atlantic, United, Marriott, Hyatt, Hilton, American Express, Bank of America, CapitalOne, Chase, Thrifty, Avis, Enterprise, Hertz, and National, all on different websites. This list is a small number of the over 400 and growing sites AwardWallet can manage.
