• Your 3000th Front Page Post



    Unless Howard posts something in the next hour or so, this post right here will be a bit of a milestone for these forums. As your humble front page blogger, tasked with bringing you a post every weekday morning and a round-up of news every weekday afternoon, I thought this might be a good opportunity to check in with you all and see how I'm doing.

    For the news round-ups I have a system in place that seems to work pretty well. I keep a running list of news stories from my RSS feeds and reddit; for the "From The Forums" section I basically find the forum posts with the most replies from the last 24 hours.

    The morning blog posts is where I could really use your feedback. I generally leave device reviews to Howard, and for original content stick to my few areas of expertise, like Android modding or Pebble. That gets a bit tricky since this obviously isn't XDA and there isn't even a dedicated Pebble forum here, nor likely enough users to warrant one.

    So, as I see it, my job every morning is to highlight a particularly noteworthy bit of mobile-related news, something that deserves more than just a headline in the afternoon news round-up. Most often that means hardware, be it a device announcement, leak or even rumour. Sometimes it's software, like a bloated carrier ROM or especially useful app. Less often it's about the carriers themselves, as there are very few of those stories that would be relevant to everyone reading the forums.

    Finally, while I myself have some very strong opinions on net neutrality, privacy and user rights, I try to only post on those topics when there's something concrete to report. If you want more, by all means let me know.

    After this afternoon's news round-up I'll be away on my summer vacation until Monday, August 22nd. Looking forward to reading your comments when I get back!

    Is 5G a big deal? I say no it's just bragging rights & huckstering to the public. Data allotments per plan get chewed up a lot quicker with 5G & that's about it.


    5G will be crazy fast, but it'll...
