Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

You don't hear of that issue with the Motorola Droid now do you? or the HTC Evo? And as for iPhone being much better than any other phone. Now that's comical.

It's a phone. Just a phone. Take a deep breath. It's just a phone.

Besides, you could have spent the $200 (or whatever) on bike schwag.

Of course it's the best phone ever made. What's the matter with you? Best ever. EVER.

The nexus one has the problem, the Evo or Droid might. The problem is that the 10,000 people that own those phones aren't enough to make the world care. That being said, my iPhone 4 hasn't dropped a single call even though it has the "problem." meanwhile what good is an Evo or Droid if the battery lasts about 10 hours? A phone with a weak signal is better than a phone with a dead battery.

Bc people can always get to a charger? I spent 12 hours away from any way to charge my phone yesterday. Even after streaming the tour from about 8 am to til near noon, plus endless browsing, messaging, and oldspice guy videos on youtube. i still had 30% battery at the end with the ringer off but vibrate on, gps, wifi, and 3g enabled. I'd like to see an Evo do that.

Droid X can do that, easily. And you can even hold it however you want.

I read a review of a guy who got one early (journalist or something). Said he tried to kill it within the day and couldn't. Even streaming video constantly it lasts 10 hours or so. The wifi hotspot lasts a while it seemed.

I won't have mine for a while since my contract isn't up until January or something.

journalists used to say the 3gs would last an entire day as well, but mine usually died by 2 pm. Thats why I wait for "real" people.

Anywho, back to bicycles

I'm awaiting the mail man today to drop off my new Fizik Aliante from PBK, hopefully it's more comfortable than my Toupe Team.
