The reason I got into technology was because I wanted some medical ebooks and references on my Nokia Symbian smartphone back when I was still studying for my PharmD degree in 2006. I tend to forget that sometimes and it's easy for me to get lost in the mobile world and its platform wars, app updates, nitty gritty OS changes, and long lists of flagship specifications. But I'm often reminded of why I loved this whole field in the first place thanks to new and fascinating uses of mobile technology in medicine. And thankfully, this is happening more and more frequently as time passes. Read More
Things did not go as planned for LG with the Watch Urbane 2nd Edition, which was originally supposed to come out late last year.

For many young kids, Disneyland is a dream come true. And if they're old enough to dream of going on Disney rides, they're probably also old enough to know that Gameloft is a game developer to approach with caution. Some games are good. Others are ripe with in-app purchases. And the ones that are good tend to have IAPs too.

The Galaxy S7 and S7 edge come into 2016 with a rather tremendous amount of baggage in the eyes of the phone enthusiasts of the world. Many viewed Samsung’s move to sealed batteries, non-expandable storage, a non-waterproof design, and glass backs as open and Apple-hued traitorism last year, feeling the company had lost sight of what its most ardent fans considered reasons to buy into the Galaxy brand. The same set of changes also befell what I long thought Samsung’s bulwark in the high-end, high-feature part of the enthusiast market in the Note line (minus waterproofing, as the Note never had it).
