1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    The trend toward reverse-vertically-challenged phone/tablet hybrids seems to be picking up more steam. Not only is Samsung & Huawei supposedly working on ginormous 6.x-inch and larger phablet devices, now it looks like Sony may get in on the act too. As you can see in the pic above, a bezel for a new Sony device is being displayed in a factory photo-op. The device measures out at 6.44-inches, which seems to "inch" closer toward a tablet than a phone. Supposedly, according to the source of the leaked pic, this will be the display for a new 1080p Sony smartphone/phablet. Of course, it could be a big fraud too, which happens from time to time on the interwebs.

    Sound off: real or fake? If it is real, would you want such a device?

    I beleive it. I think the manufacturers will continue to make them bigger until the new model that is the biggest isn't bought. I'm curious to what they think what considers a success is? Samsung is happy with 5 million Note 2 phablets.

    Yes. It will be just like the 90s to mid 2000s. Baggy pants will be in again. I can't wait to wear my 4X shirt and have my pants all the way past my buttocks. Haha. Then of course, your pockets will have a rip because of the price tag.

    Btw, most of my close friends have the note 2. Man, I hate it when they ask me to take the picture for them. Every time I hold it, it seems like i'm going to drop it. It is just too thin for my liking. Maybe it just me getting used to having a qwerty keyboard :)
