Phone Hell

Just before Christmas, I saw a Best Buy special for the Samsung Galaxy S III. It was $100 off, but it meant a 2-year commitment to a terrible provider.

Ok, all cellphone providers are terrible. AT$T is bad technically and bad customer service. Verizon is mediocre technically and terrible customer-service wise. Sprint has more gaps in their coverage than the Raiders pass coverage and so does T-Mobile. Can’t say any of those companies have any redeeming qualities.

They all suck.

Anyway, I became enamored with the S III’s big screen. Look at it compared to the iPhone 4:

See, the Samsung is huge. The screen is big, and its a high-quality screen. The only thing wrong with it is, the Android apps suck. They like to quit while you’re using them. Actually, that’s not the only thing wrong with the S III. The camera sucks out loud. The voice quality sucks, too. For the size of the device, the app icons are tiny. I suspect I can make the icons bigger, but why bother? I shouldn’t have to.

I’m stuck with this thing for 22 more months. I suppose I’ll get used to it, but I’ll know to go back to the latest iteration of iPhone, no matter what the size of the screen is.

Galaxy S 3: Highly overrated.

I love sports. I don't love the hype, homerism, ratings talk, self-important egomaniacs, bias or any of the other nonsense you get with the national media. Nor will you get the two clowns on sports talk radio who stage phony arguments. It doesn't make it entertaining. It makes it time to turn on your iPod and jam instead of listening to white noise generators. This is the sports blog for you, the ones who don't like everything Los Angeles or New York. Just because the sporting media is based there doesn't mean we have to like their teams. We do treat them fairly, though. That means if one of those cities has an average QB who plays particularly well...we'll note it. If they're garbage, we'll say so. Instead of crying "why, why, why" like a certain sports media homer did in his radio broadcast. This isn't my job...I have a real one. Nevertheless, I'll post here when I make an observation. Common sense in sports is nearly dead. Now we're attempting to bring it back.
