Chris Christie: “We need common sense laws that regulate video game sales!  Those things are dangerous, and they eat children’s souls!” Inigo Montoya: “Common sense.  You keep on using those words.  I do not think they mean what you think they mean.” Look, I’ve got to write my name in a little book to freaking buy Sudafed.  Yeah, I get …

I was perusing the Google headlines today when I came across an article on the Edison2 VLC (Very Light Car).  It’s this cool little concept that achieves incredible efficiency by making the car both very very light, and very strong.

I’ve now reviewed the major platforms, and I’ve tried to be objective (minus that one little rant about the iPad mini–man, that thing drives me crazy).  I hope that you’ve seen that there’s something to be praised on each platform, as well something to be not so happy about.  In short: no mobile device or operating system is perfect.
