Default Hi, How Are You?

Hello all!

Add another notch to your belt Android... another lifelong Apple Fanboy has broken free and jumped into your open arms. Although the "money grab" that was abandoning the universal cable for Apple products made me question my my loyalty, I refused to acknowledge the fact that there might be a better phone or mobile OS out there up until the moment of Apple's iPhone 5S/5C announcement. But the new generation of iPhones flipped a switch in my mind that, frankly, should have gone off a long time ago. I still maintain that the smartphone revolution and the calliber of all mobile devices available today are thanks to the original iPhone. What I failed to see, until recently, was how stagnant the devices offered by Apple have become. With the exception of computing power & advancing the quality & capabilities of the "camera-phone", Apple's iPhone has failed to wow, especially since the iPhone 4. Yes, each iteration provides improvements of the last - but there has been nothing novel in some time. When a fingerprint scanner was presented as if it were that novel idea that no one could be without, I made my decision to cut my ties (as far as mobile phones go) with Apple until they are able to drag that dying Fanboy in me back out for the right reasons, and not because of slick looking hardware and fun, but ultimately useless, functionality...

... after a few weeks of being courted by Android, I sense that inner Fanboy fading quickly.

So here I am! After contemplating for weeks I took a leap of faith and bought my very first Android device. It was a close call between the GS4 and the HTC-One, but I think I made the right choice. It's been an amazing adventure learning the ins & outs of the OS and the phone over the last few weeks, and I'm happy to have found a community to learn and experience with. Considering myself a pretty tech-savvy guy, I also hope to be able to contribute and help others shortly as well.

Until we meet again
