The comments on Droid vs. Iphone are pretty much split evenly down the middle in favor of each.
Since I use Verizon as my wireless carrier, I have been leaning towards the Droid and almost pulled the trigger this week…but found two interesting issues that stopped me:
1) The Droid does not allow voice-activated blue tooth calling. Aside from the legalities of making a call while driving in NYS by typing in a name (I think this qualifies as “texting” and is illegal), I have grown reliant on my voice activated calling feature while driving. Motorola reps claim there is no scheduled upgrade to enable this feature. Has anyone heard otherwise?
2) The Verizon staff could not transfer my information from my Blackberry Pearl to the Droid. What experiences have others had with this transition?
Thanks for your comments.

I am finding that my trusty Blackberry Pearl is just not cutting it! I need easier access to the internet while mobile, along with any other features, apps that would assist me with my custom clothing business. I’d like to be able to backup my data on the internet…I now backup on my laptop…used to sync my Motorola Q twice a day automatically…
A knowledgeable friend just commented that the Droid is going to “blow away” the Iphone…strong words…
So…I’m open to any/all comments from my many technologically-advanced friends. Thanks in advance!Read More
First, I attended a webinar hosted by hubspot.com recently on social networking. They claim over 250,000 users/day have become members of a social media link since 1/07. 1/2 of these are post-college or >25…sound like a good demographic?
My take on social networking is that it is something that every retailer needs to adopt. It takes a carefully thought-out plan and discipline in execution. Seek out free seminars in your locale by joining linked in, for example, and then joining sub-groups in your city…and ask the members about social networking seminars. You may be surprised at how effective this viral networking works.
My explanation of social networking is that it’s like a new age business cocktail party. When you attend a networking gig at a local bar for some group to which you belong, you are probably pretty happy if you make 3-4 quality contacts.
How do you go about making these contacts? Well…whatever your personal secret is, apply the same principles to social networking. Most successful social networking pros will respond that they converse with new people, exchange contact information, share a little about each other’s background, and then look for the right opportunity to re-connect. Social networking is the same thing…just a newer version…that’s my KISS explanation.
