Social Media Updates for 2010-06-20

  • @therealriley – The shortcomings of the HTC Evo 4G are to be blamed on Google, HTC, and Sprint equally. Maybe "Gingerbread" will help? in reply to therealriley #
  • @joesteiger – I'd never call anybody "stupid" for making a choice that was perfect for them. That'd be… really stupid. 🙂 in reply to joesteiger #
  • MobileCrunch HTC Evo 4G Review: http://lgno.me/dp7nIe ["Recommendation: Use caution."] #
  • …so, you're saying all I need to do is turn off the HTC Evo 4G's top features and avoid recording video to use it for longer than 2hrs? #
