Mark Zuckerberg has been working on a modern messaging system that will give people the choice of where and when they want any of their emails, sms, Facebook messages, or from what it seems any messaging source. I gather this would be huge if he pulls it off, as the 500 million people who are...

Once I got my Curve though, things definitely changed, I don't think I'd ever go back. But who knows, if I cannot get my hands on a Torch I might...

Over the weekend it has become known that Acer has chosen Goolge Android over Windows 7. Now I don't know what Google Android looks like on a Netbook, but I know that Windows 7 didn't run too well on mine. On the defense of Windows 7, my lil Acer One isn't exactly a power house.
