The HTC Bliss is supposed to be a phone aimed at women. Unless it has NFC and I missed that note, it isn’t for any woman I know. In my mind a phone for women would include some kind of software/hardware combo where a lady who would like to buy say…a dress could go to […]

Counter Strike doesn’t try to compete with games like Battlefield 3 or Modern Warfare 3. It doesn’t want to really. So this new update coming up isn’t adding a ton of things you may wish for if you hate Call of Duty. More or less the game has been successful and just wants to keep […]
