    PCworld has published a list of the top 100 tech products and software for 2010 and guess what?!!! The EVO is not included in the list even though phones, like the Incredible, the Epic Galaxy, the Iphone are there. Can someone explain this to me???

    I think this title would be more appropriateif they excluded the epic instead of the evo

    This could matter to me, I suppose, but I'm a lot more inclined to not care what PCWorld thinks is important. I'll still be getting my Evo when I'm eligible for my full upgrade discount on Nov. 1st. ;)

    It appears the Evo is like Rodney Dangerfield...

    If I remember right, PC World wasn't too fond of the Evo in its review at release.

    They don't know a good thing even when it calls and tell them.

    My wife teaches the 14-17 year olds' Sunday School class at church. She had to tell them to put away their phones during class. She said she got a new phone a couple of months ago and loves it but there are appropriate times to use it and when to put it away. They asked which one and she said the Evo. "No way!" "Can we see it?!?" The teenagers think the Evo rocks and I believe them way more than PC World.

    I used to be a regular reader of PCWorld, but I grew weary of the bias in their reviews and articles. In a nutshell, it became pretty apparent to me that their objectivity is influenced by advertising revenue.

    Now that may make good business sense and the practice might be the rule rather than the exception, but that doesn't mean I have to support it.

    So, I'm glad that, in the samsung EPIC's commercial, they are careful to add: the smartphone ranked #1 by PCWORLD. For me, the ranking is not credible. EVO has beaten all the smartphones it was compared to in the prizefight on CNET.com, which is a more credible site to me.

    PCWorld? How quaint. Ye olde print magazine. The last time they were relevant, the Razr was the best phone and the portable cd players ruled!

    Evo is a beast... flashed this baby out at work today and asked a fellow co-worker if he was able to download music straight from his device and play it in his music player for free... he looked at me like "is that humanly possible??"

    In the end no matter the ratings, reviews, critics etc they won't impact my experience with this phone as of today IN MY OWN OPINION this its the best on the market. Maybe something will take the evo down tomorrow.

    I'm guessing he had an Iphone.

    And yeah, PCWorld is nothing more than a magazine that prints it's opinions based on how much money those companies shell out. The more money, the better reviews it will give. They are a joke.

    Well, since Sony finally ceased production, all the collectors desperately want a "final" Walkman so it would be correct to say that the Walkman rules....right now!

    I use MixZing Player. The free one works just fine. The pro allows you to custom edit the tags and do some other things. I keep it is a large widget on one of my screens.

    You can download or upload any mp3 and drop it in a folder on your phone. I created a folder called Music. The MixZing player will play any of them very easily.
