It would have been a much bigger deal back in the 80's than it is today. Apparently, home video games are fine in the town.

Take a big serious look at this fabulous Jawbone ERA in a high-res review - it rocks really hard.

Wild enough for you? The biggest news today, in my (and I'm sure many more people's) opinion? Google's current CEO Eric Schmidt stepping down from his post as boss. Take an odd ride with Don Reisinger down violence lane in a column asking the following: Is 17 the Right Cut-Off Age for Mature-Rated Games? Over on Android Community we've got a tip on some new robots: Droid X 2, Droid 3, and Droid Incredible 2, a rather controversial tip on Google holding Gingerbread, and a really scary tip about the Android app by the name of Trapster. Behold a whole new world via an extrapolation of the ideas of soon to be former CEO of Google Eric Schmidt by yours truly in a featured post called The Mobile Revolution is Upon Us. Finally discover the kind side of PR as Motorola issues an apology for one of their own speaking rudely to a developer.

First, watch your ports! Turns out there's a way for people to hack the crap out of your computer just by attaching their Android to it.
