Is the DROID RAZR worth five cents?


Brian Patrick Cork

as most of you know every now set-aside my iPhone and then I drop onto the dark platform and experiment with an droidAndroid device.

I do this to keep my mind open, and I’m always curious.

I keep looking at the DROID RAZR. I was amongst the first to hold one back in it’s original form back in 2003. the reviews for the current model are mixed.

so, if anyone actually uses a DROID product, and it happens to be a RAZR, come-back with your brief reviews. give me your five cents worth.

“DROID RAZR is the thinnest 4G LTE Android smartphone, and it’s ready for Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0).”

peace be to my Brothers and Sisters.

Google could cut deep with a Razr


word should spread like wild-fire that Motorola is bringing back it’s wildly successful Razr – but now as a smartphone.

this should give Motorola something of an “edge”, eh.

the Razr was once the best-selling cellular phone in the world, until Apple came-out with the iPhone in 2007. the Razr quickly followed Palm (acquired by …Motorola), fell out-of-favor, and became virtually extinct.

…that noble device will now be known at the “Droid Razr”.

I had a Motorola Star Tac ($1200 in 1995 or 1996) that was the precognoiter of the Razr. my wife had a Razr. it was a good “chick phone”. a lot of golfers carried them.

if Larry Page and his crew of advertising bandits at Google had the advance thinking that they could or should buy Motorola Mobility with the strategy of dropping the Android Operating System into it and growing their marketing structure around fond memories of yesteryear, I think that’s pretty slick. it’s reasonable to assume that Google has the research capability to identify buying trends and behavior, and this signals future business opportunities.

Google’s deal to acquire Motorola Mobility for roughly $12 billion is not done yet, but analysts have already “baked” some forecasting into Google’s strike price. but, I see this as a good idea, and will be good for shareholders (I like Google any day over $302 and $475). …maybe less so for end-users. never mind that, for now.

I suspect that women, in particular, will like the new Razr, as it fits in their cosmetic and cocktail bags and skinny jeans. and, golfers.

more later.

peace be to my Brothers and Sisters.

What’s All This About?

"What am I looking at?", you might wonder.

Lots of stuff.

Meanwhile, here, I discuss events, people and things in our world - and, my (hardly simplistic, albeit inarticulate) views around them.

You'll also learn things about, well, things, like people you need to know about, and information about companies you can't find anywhere else.

So, while I harangue the public in my not so gentle way, you will discover that I am fascinated by all things arcane, curious about those whom appear religious, love music, dabble in politics, loathe the media, value education, still think I am an athlete, and might offer a recipe.

All the while, striving mightily, and daily, to remain a prudent and optimistic gentleman - and, authentic.
