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 folks at Verizon flip the switch and went live with their mobile 4G LTE network yesterday. The speeds reported fall a bit short of what we previously reported here, but are still pretty close and faster than many available broadband wired connections.

    According to the guys over at Phandroid, initial real-world tests from some of their sources in the Washington DC metro area are a minimum of just over 6.5Mbps. Of course, this is on a mostly empty network, so it will be interesting to see how it fairs when the network gets loaded down with a ton of people downloading their favorite videos 24/7.

    I don't think it's worth it right now. I mean, I live in Omaha, NE and I found it isn't even available here yet? Not to mention the increased costs of operating on 4G.. Also, what phones are available to operate on the 4G network!? I'm getting a 3G Droid X soon, dammit..
