He’s a comforting little fellow, isn’t he?

Remember when phones were just to make calls (oh god, do some of you not? I’m getting old…)? No longer! Now that I’ve had my Droid X2 for a while, it’s time to share some of the wisdom I’ve gathered over a couple months of use. My basic stipulations for apps are that they are either free or provide a service that I can’t get anywhere else. So far I haven’t bought a single app (although I have some media subscriptions that come with an app). Pretty good service record! There are a lot of Apps out there, and a lot of those apps are great for something or other, so I’m going to stick to the ones that I find myself using on a daily basis.

A hilarious new Facebook hack has been discovered by reddit that makes it so you can update you Facebook “from” almost anywhere. And it’s easy! Simply copy and paste the following URL into your browser:

http://www.facebook.com/connect/prompt_feed.php?preview=true&api_key=123456789

and then replace the “123456789” with the api_key of your choice from the list below. For example, if you wanted to post from your Banana Phone you would replace it with “1477a4cd29ec724a3de19be5d26e0389”. So your link would be:

http://www.facebook.com/connect/prompt_feed.php?preview=true&api_key=1477a4cd29ec724a3de19be5d26e0389

Easy, right? And there’s more!

If it seems like every day there is another new way to listen to music online, that’s probably because there is. Over the years I’ve used pretty much all of them, and have purchased premium subscriptions to many of them as well. I think it’s good to support start-ups, and getting rid of the ads doesn’t hurt either. Note that my opinions are built on personal preference and that you should all of these because they’re all great in their own way. Anyway, here is a rundown on the best of the bunch:

I’m sorry, Google. I know I called you evil in my last post. Compared to Facebook though, you’re like Little Orphan Annie. Now that you’re teasing me with the delicious field trial of Google+, let’s be friends again. Readers, here’s what you need to know.

For starters, everything you’ve heard is true. Google+ is a lot like Facebook. You’ve got your profile, your friends, and your photos. At its core, is there all that much else to the big F?
