You and I both know that smartphones don’t last forever. But shouldn’t they last more than a year? I wrote about this recently in relation to a Computer World article that singled out Motorola for not playing nice with phone updates on its new $1,000 phone. Then another article appeared, this time on Android Central, calling out Motorola again on this issue. And you know what? The next day, Motorola responded in the positive!
Do you think about what category your smartphone is in? Like, does it really matter to you if your phone is a “flagship?” Maybe that term doesn’t even register. You might be like, “Um, I have a Samsung.” Or, “It’s an iPhone.” Fair enough!

It still works just fine, but so does your camera-phone that’s always tucked in your pocket or purse.

This year, we have only a few small thin patches. Nonetheless, I’m enjoying them through photography but in a simpler way than before.
At long last! Motorola’s newest mid-range and budget-friendly phones are being released in the US soon - April 16th to be exact.
There's been much ado lately about phones that fold or flip. So what’s the big deal, really? Is it just a novelty, some nostalgia, or a new paradigm in smartphoning?
A week ago, Motorola announced new phones for the US in 2020. Good timing, because I was about to run out and buy last year’s Moto G7. Oh, by the way, I plan to switch from iPhone back to Android. Call it ludicrous, or call it liberating...wait, it’s just a phone that you can call.
The kindle is back, baby! For months, it was discarded in a drawer like last year’s fashion. My beloved white Paperwhite is the right device for reading. It is the Jedi Master of eBooks. No, better yet, it is the Yoda. Much to read, I still have!
