iPhone and Wii reveal how “different” translates to “better”

Read blog postWhen the iPhone was released with all the hoopla of being the first truly innovative smartphone and claimed to be better than anything currently on the market, I was skeptical and defensive for my Treo. Sure the iPhone offered more storage for music and video and the wider screen makes for a much better Web browsing experience, but without a tactile keypad for numbers and letters, there is NO way the iPhone is a better communications device than the Treo for phone calls, text messages and emails.

Comic Critic: Infinite Crisis vs. Civil War

Read blog postThis past year saw both Marvel and DC both launch epic events-driven series: Civil War with Marvel and Infinite Crisis with DC.
