Verizon Droid Razr Beats the iPhone

Well, not really. At least not yet, but could it? I've been hearing all about this new Razr on Verizon Wireless. Remember the Motorola Razr? This may seem like ancient times when it comes to wireless technology, but a few years back not everyone had Smartphones. A few years before that no one had heard of the Appple iPhone. Now everyone seems to have one or the other. In the old days, thin was in. The Razr ruled. It was a super thin phone that came in just about every color imaginable. Then the iPhone came out and everyone had to be cool and have all these functions in their phones. No one bought razrs anymore. When AT&T was the only game in town for the iPhone, carriers like Verizon developed other smartphones. This included many new phones from Motorola like several versions of the Droid. Now they went and combined things the people loved about the Razr and get the new Droid RAZR smartphone. Good branding, huh? And I've seen more hype for this thing on Twitter than any phone since, well.. whatever the last iPhone was ( iPhone 4s?)

Now, everyone knows we love Apple and all the "i" things around Here. Steve Jobs died and RV cried. And we've been fooled before. We remember when the Verizon LG Voyager could compete with the iPhone. HAHAHAHAHA. And when it came time to bring you the Verizon LG Voyager Review, it turned out there were a lot of problems with that phone. There are definitely a lot of good smartphones. And Androids have been doing very well in sales, but it's hard to come out and say any new phone is really going to compete with the iPhone. But maybe the Droid Razr will.

So Conrad Murray Killed Michael Accident...Says the Jury

Well all the big shit about the Conrad Murray trial is done (or at least the initial court part.)  It's been one of those stories where you can't avoid seeing as it's thrown in your face on every channel and every news or gossip website.  As the verdict came down as guilty, crowds roared within seconds as people continue to act like a direct family member was involved and now their lives will change forever.

Pretty much Conrad Murray screwed up as a doctor, now he's getting punished for it, that's about it.  Michael Jackson isn't going to come moonwalking back to life to the tune of "Moonwalker" which seems to be what some people think based on their reactions.  These people have nothing better to do but stand outside with signs like it's going to make a difference. 

Now everyone sits and waits for a couple of weeks until everyone plans their life around and puts up countdown clocks until Murray's sentencing.  Most of these people hated Michael Jackson when he was alive yet are his biggest supporters when it's time for a dramatic trial.  Devon Lohan backed up Michael Jackson's iconic status years before he died, so all this bullshit drama is a waste of time to us.  But no doubt it will be the hottest tabloid story for months to come.  We'll watch some classic Michael Jackson videos instead:
