OnStar RemoteLink App Updated To v2.0 With A New, Much Less Horrible UI

Usually a UI overhaul that's just okay isn't newsworthy, but I want you to understand how fundamentally ugly the OnStar RemoteLink app looked before now. So first, look at the new app below—it's okay, maybe a little plain. Then click through to see the horror of the old version (NSFL).

Leaked Video Of The Upcoming HTC Ville Shows Up, Will Sense 4 Ruin ICS?

We've been hearing about the HTC Ville, which should be set for an announcement at Mobile World Congress next month, since November of last year. The guys at HTC Hub recently spent some hands-on time with this upcoming mid-ranger and shot some video showing what it's all about. Prepare to be underwhelmed.

Engadget Reviews The Motorola Atrix 4G, Finds A Great Phone, Highly Overpriced Gimmicky Docks, Awful Data Speeds, Bootloader Lock, And Lots Of Crapware

One of the few tech blogs who managed to get their hands on Motorola's upcoming AT&T flagship - the Atrix 4G - is, of course, Engadget. The reviewer, unsurprisingly, is the infamous cool geek and editor-in-chief Joshua Topolsky, who, from my experience reading Engadget's reviews, does a good overall job but fails to go into those details that matter to most Android users. The Atrix 4G review is exactly what I had expected, and I'm going to summarize it and save you 20 minutes reading it.
