I had a working cell phone once. In the before time. In the long, long ago. That's all over now. It's Facebook Home launch day for those "lucky" enough to have one of the few handsets it's rolling out for today. I have a Galaxy S III while the other chumps here at Geekosystem have iPhones, so I took one for the team and installed Facebook Home. Like the Borg, my phone has been assimilated and turned into something dark, twisted, and evil. That might be a slight overstatement, but it is quite bad. Who knew I could ever miss Touch Whiz?
Samsung Galaxy S III
It's that time of year again, when Apple releases a new device and it and its rival device have to be dropped on a hard surface from terrifying heights. You know, so we learn not to drop our expensive, delicate pocket computers, because we don't know not to do that before seeing the extent of the damage. With the iPhone 5 shipping today, it's probably best to get this drop test out of the way so you can be sufficiently scared of dropping your new expensive toy. However, compared to last generation's iPhone 4S vs. the Samsung Galaxy S II drop test, this test yields some surprising results.
