LG Calling on Android to Grow Sales in 2010

LG is expecting Android to help boost sales and grow their smart phone numbers for the coming year.  Although not quite as heavily as Motorola, LG is betting on Android to get them into a double-digit share of the smart phones sold worldwide this year. 

LG is slated to unveil roughly 20 smartphones this year, with better than half of them based on Android.  Oddly enough, this contradicts the deal signed last year where LG said Windows Mobile would be the primary OS for smartphones.  Not that we’re complaining.

Tears for Tiers: A Look Inside Verizon’s Imminent Tiered Data Pricing

I’m sure by now you’ve heard about Verizon’s plan to adopt tiered data pricing. The blogs have been buzzing about it, readers have been flaming about it, and trolls… well… they’ve been trolling about it. I can’t say I’m surprised about the move, considering I’ve been a guinea pig to corporate greed for many years now. I’m often asking myself: “Why do I allow these companies to continually rip me off?” And, like most people, I just sit there and take it. Sure, we’ll complain about it, but do we ever do anything about it? I mean, if Verizon is such a bastardization of a company, why don’t we just switch carriers?
