There are a couple of changes to be noted in regards to the site over the last couple of weeks:
- Some may have noticed slow loading times within the last month. After some consultation with tech support, I’ve had the site moved to a new server. Load times are now much improved.
- CGHM Nature has been revamped with a stylish new theme and a couple of new nature photos. Remember that it’s a good alternative to going outdoors in the centurial temperatures.
And now for the bad news: the right quarter of my Droid’s touchscreen is no longer responsive. The digitizer appears to be defunct, and as a result navigating the phone is a real hassle (as I knew would be the case when the winds started blowing in an all-touchscreen direction). As was the case with Inspy, a hardware failure has forced me to consider upgrading sooner than I’d anticipated.
Now there are dozens of nearly-identical high-end Android devices available, and I have serious designs on getting the Droid 3, or waiting and getting a Droid Bionic. There are numerous gripes with the Droid 3, including its lack of 4G, limited RAM, too much BLUR, and less-than-stellar screen, but most of those may end up being issues with the Bionic as well (except the 4G thing). I’ve really come to appreciate the physical keyboard when using various emulators, and the Droid 3’s keyboard is top-of-the-line.
It’s a shame to have to upgrade now, with a new Nexus due later this year and quad-core devices on the horizon. But there’s always something new on the horizon.
