    Your cell phone battery could soon recharge ten times faster

    Better Batteries! I have been in the battery business for 30 years. We will see some great advances in lithium chemistry batteries within the next 5 years, but unfortunately, the articles and news releases most see are experiments done at a university laboratory. There is a big difference...

    I regret buying the bionic

    I'm Done. OK, this is getting really stupid. I'm participating in a three way conference call, and the Bionic drops the call and freezes up. I go to the VZW store, and buy an iPhone4S (GASP!). I really, really hate to say it, but it works very well. All the same apps I used for business are...

    To the camera haters....

    The pictures are all of stationary objects. Try taking a picture of your kid's play during a flag football game- the camera lag makes it impossible to get a shot! The quality of the picturews is acceptable, it's the 2 second shutter lag that makes it worthless.

    Oh Boy! A new Bug!

    Well, maybe a new twist on an old problem. I have a charger pad. When I place my Bionic on the pad to charge the battery, it locks down the data connection so hard that I have to do a battery pull in order to get any connection back at all - even voice. Even the old airplane toggle trick...

    I regret buying the bionic

    Me Too! At first I thought it was a very good phone. Then after a couple of weeks I realized it started dropping data and voice connections. I had already purchased the lapdock, and the spare battery charger/cradle, so I exchanged it for a new one. This one is exactly the same, if not a...

    Do I need to return my bionic?

    You need a new watch 85 hrs straight over two days?? No wonder I'm behind at work- my day only lasts 24 hrs.

    Verizon knows about the bionic's data problem

    Bionic Data Connections My replacement Bionic is also losing data connections and dropping calls regularly, as did the first one. I went into the VZW store, and they showed me a new tech support report that said the Bionic has "marginal" connectivity in both 3G and 4G. A fix is due out the...

    I went to the VZW stor today with this complaint- they looked up the tech report and it is a known issue called "marginal connectivity" with 4G and 3G on the Bionic. Supposed to be a fix early November.

    Extra battery and charging cradle

    Bionic Battery Charger Cradle The VZW stores carry them- I forget how much it was, but it handles both the standard and the extended battery. Also has a little micro USB dongle so you can charge the Bionic at the same time.

    Bionic LapDock Impressions

    I got the LapDock, and it is really convenient to answer lengthy emails in airports, etc. It boots up and turns of in a heartbeat. It isn't intended to be a netbook (well maybe, but its not), but for browsing the web with Firefox, and doing emails it is great.

    4g repeater?

    Voice calls are not really 4G- only data is. I have a Wilson booster in my P/U truck. It picks up the signal from a passive phone antenna in a cradle, and boosts it to 3 watts. Works great. Wilson's boosters are 3G-but for voice who cares? VZW also sells a network extender- I have one in my...

    Extra battery and charging cradle

    The VZW stores carry them. It comes with an extra standard battery too. You can charge the spare, and it also has a mini USB dongle so you can charge the Bionic at the same time (great for overnight charges while traveling)

    Is Bionic Battery Life Really This Abysmal??

    Dead twice in a row I've had the Bionic for a little over a week- first week was very impressive battery life; all day no probs. Not great battery life, but better than expected. This weekend I put the phone on my desk with the battery at 80%. I came back about two hours later and the phone...
