    Are you pissed that tech blogs like Gizmodo and Lifehacker mostly only post about iPhone apps and almost never post about Android apps?

    Let's do something about it.

    Email them and ask them to start doing things like "The Week's Best Android Apps" and "Android App Download of the Day" as they do for the iPhone.

    Some authors on those sites appear hostile to non-iPhone smartphones.

    No. I just keep their iPhone bias in mind.

    Sending them suggestions is a good idea IMO though.

    That's why we gotta keep on them. Get the press coverage we want, we need!

    I believe you're right. I'm seeing more posts about Android apps on Gizmodo.

    Gis has done a couple of 'Must Have' apps for Android.

    I just think they are biased ;)
