WP7 LTE Devices As Early As March

One thing that Windows Phone 7 has yet bring to me is an LTE capable phone. My girlfriend has a work Android device that has LTE and the 5-9Mbs she gets on that does put my 2-5Mbs to shame on my HTC Titan. Of course my Titan still owns the speeds on most iPhones that isn’t enough to make me feel warm and fuzzy inside.

Windows Phone 7 Has Too Many Great Features

Yesterday, I made a little post about some of the great built in features of Windows Phone 7. On my way home I instantly realized that I left out one of the greatest features of the phone and it isn’t even a tile. It is a capacitive button on the bottom right of the front of the phone. This my friends is the search button. I will dedicate this post solely to Bing on the Windows Phone 7 because I feel bad for leaving him out yesterday and there is a lot to cover.

Why Would Consumers Shoot Themselves In The Foot?

I am a big advocate of Windows Phone 7. Love it, hate it, deal with it. Many people have their favorite platform for various reasons.

Selecting a Domain – Website Setup Part 1

If you aren’t here to nit pick skip the first paragraph.

Now, this can and will be argued about actually being the first part to setting up a website but for what I am doing this is step one.  Technically you should probably have an idea about what you want your website to be and have some goals set.  However, in my case I just want to have a blog site setup where I can write about things once in a while. I get excited about some things that I would love to write about but don’t and other times there are things that I just really think people should see.  I am a web developer by profession and would like to get better with web design so along the life of this site I will be trying to make a wordpress theme or find one I like.
