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.

I’m a big supporter of what Microsoft is about right now. I think Google makes some awesome products but they’re slowly transitioning into a 90’s era Microsoft-ish juggernaut (evil) and I haven’t been too fond of the Cult of Mac since elementary school. Microsoft has had its issues, but they seem to finally be giving up on that “F*** you, we’re Microsoft!” attitude that’s left them behind the curve in recent years – giving us the Xbox 360, Windows 7, and the subject of this post, Windows Phone 7.

I’ve been holding off on getting a new phone for ages. My old phone had some great features like making calls and being pretty small, so I held on to it until a few weeks ago when my send button kind of broke and the first Windows Phone 7 came to Verizon in the same day. I’d been hearing a lot of interesting buzz, so I went out and picked one up.

Three days later, I traded it in for a Droid X2.
