Samsung Galaxy S4 – Unboxing and First Impressions
Last week I took delivery of a new Samsung Galaxy S4 mobile phone. This is a phone that, if Samsung has its way, will out iPhone the iPhone. First impressions are quite positive: it has a nice metal band around the edge, and feels quite thin, even though it’s not really a small phone. It’s a 4G phone, and sound and call quality is very good. It’s a little bit smaller than its older sibling, the Note 2, but it feels quite solid and very comfortable in the hand.

Alas Poor Yorick – HP Touchpad Stillborn
There I was, halfway through doing my review of the WebOS based HP TouchPad, and then the news comes through that, just five scant days after its Australian launch, the device is being scuttled by HP. So, what was it like? Do you want to know? Packaging was nice. Very obviously Apple-esque and Apple influenced, even though very different in its actual presentation.
