Kinda wonder if the next generation of kids will even game offline…what do you think?
We just made some awesome new demo videos for the Rover Puck, Hub & Stick so that you guys can get a better idea of what you get with each of them. There are three videos for each device: a First Look, an Activation demo, and an example of how you can use the device. You can see them all on our YouTube channel, but we’ll show you the three Rover Puck videos here to give you an idea of what they’re all like.

You’ve of course heard the big news that Verizon will finally be carrying the iPhone and that within the next couple months the phone will also function as a hotspot. The idea of turning your phone into a hotspot is old news for all of you that already have hotspot-capable phones, but so is the realization that a smartphone doesn’t make that great of a wireless hotspot!
Before you shell out that extra $20 a month to your provider for iPhone tethering check out this article in BNET about the Smarter, Cheaper Alternative to iPhone Tethering: getting an actual mobile hotspot device. It goes into the various reasons (price, share-ability, battery life and more) why reconsidering that tethering charge is better for your wallet & your smartphone.
Did you see The Oatmeal today because it pretty much gets Winter 2010 EXACTLY right. This part about Groupon in particular is spot on. I mean really, who cared about coupons before Groupon came outta nowhere and made them cool again?
As you know, the iPhone finally came to Verizon this week. We’re sure some of you were bummed to find out that just like on the AT&T iPhone, you can only use FaceTime on a wifi connection. Lucky for you Facetime is #nbd for the Rover Puck. Our 4G wireless is crazy fast so it’s a breeze to make those video calls regardless of whether your iphone’s on Verizon or AT&T.

Keepin’ busy online? We’re pretty heavy data users too but it’s no big deal with the Rover Puck. All Rover devices offer unlimited 4G so you can stream music, video, games & more to your heart’s content. Even if that means watching The Sandlot, the History of Dance video and streaming Pandora radio all at once.
How do you multitask?

This video from Amber Case’s TED Talk had us enthralled. It’s a perfect example of all the Evology conversations we were having earlier this year and really puts our connection to technology into perspective.
Do you agree with Case’s definition of cyborgs and the idea that we are forming more human connections rather than less?
Are you an Android? An iPhone? The Rover Puck loves both of you so whichever way you swing there were some pretty cool apps that came out in 2010 and made your smartphone even smarter in 2010.
Here are a couple lists of the top apps for both that we thought we’re pretty good:
What was your favorite app of the year? We’ll be honest, we probably used Speedtest.net more than anything else… gotta brag about those crazy fast speeds from the Puck, right!?
