gPhone: Belaboring the Point on the NYT Article

Hey Rizzn-ites, I posted a bit yesterday about the NYT piece on the gPhone. The coverage of the NYT analysis has been spun as wrong as it can possibly be, with the grand take-a-way being that there is no gPhone coming. The original article was a bit off in the first...

gPhone: In Defense of Google

Google and Facebook

Hey Rizzn-ites, It seems that every time I gear up to do a blog post, Google or Facebook have to worm their way into my monologue at some point. Today is no exception. A few days ago, Mike Arrington dropped a bombshell that got a little play in the blogosphere and...

gPhone: Rumor Control.

Hey Rizzn-ites and gPhone hounds… Several folks, most notably these guys at DigiTimes, are talking about the gPhone again. I ran some of the theories past ‘Deep Throat’ over at Google (and remember, you guys named him that, not me). I’m forced...
