I’m bored with the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 which is the main phone that I use when I’m not in the process of testing other phones. We’re right at the beginning of the new phone rollout season and so far Verizon Wireless has sent me the new HTC One M8 and now the Samsung Galaxy S5 AndroidRead More…

Adidas Springblade Running Shoes review

on Sunday, August 4th, 2013
