Hackability, How it effects which phone you want to buy


Hackability is the trending topic, and often an overlooked one too. Usually when you go out and buy an Android phone you look at a few reviews, the screen size and quality, OS version, RAM, blah, blah, etc. We also have a superb tendency to by cheaper phones from smaller companies, or slightly under-specced phones just to cut costs a bit. Now there's nothing wrong with that. Not everyone can afford the  Samsung Galaxy S3, or HTC One, and the HUGE range and variety of phones running Android OS is one of the reasons for it's popularity. But there's one sticking point.

But when your library hits the XL level such as 10GB, your probably on the look out for a more streamlined, lighter, simplistic player. Meet Foobar2000...

What's wrong with the new iPad

Three million units of the third-generation iPad were sold within three days of it's launch. Its definitely one of the best tablets on the market. Not so much due to it's hardware but due to the quality and quantity of apps, fluid-interface, and of course how could I miss that screen. The screen is what decides a tablets since it's your only connection to its innards.. It's got more pixels than your HDTV and the only thing all those pixels can do stuffed into that screen is make everything you see on the iPad look simply gorgeous. The quad-core A5x coupled with that screen make sure that the gorgeous graphics on the optimized games, and HD movies play the way they're meant to. The iPad's processor is matched only by the Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime (it's powered by a quad-core Nvidia Tegra 3, even the name sounds cool).

Anyways we've pretty much established that the new iPad is the best tablet on the market. So why shouldn't you buy the iPad (for now atleast)?
