iPhone 3G or HTC Dream (google phone)?

by FrankQC / June 12, 2009 2:35 AM PDT

I've been researching and I don't know which one is better.

The positive side on iPhone is that it's all virtual.
The negative side on iPhone is that I hear it's hard to text.

The positive on HTC is that it runs Android (google) which is very, very powerful. Easier keyboard to type.

The negative on HTC is that it's twice as big than the iPhone.

Someone tell me which one is better? If I have one or the other it would be to do a lot of texting and wifi searching.

Get The Pre
by DrZzzz / June 13, 2009 6:55 AM PDT

The Palm Pre does what both of these phones can do and more. Palm pre is the most innovative phone on the market at present time. It really does everything the I phone does.....and somethings are done much better, such as the web browser which is surprising. Then there are areas such as multitasking where the Iphone cant even compare to the palm pre. The palm also integrates with I tunes which is pretty awesome. Both phones are great, but the pre is more on the cutting edge in terms of technology. The HTC dream is a great phone as well but not on par with the Pre and the Iphone in my opinion.

It depends

If the OP is using At&t and doesn't want to switch to Sprint then the Palm Pre is useless. I have seen the Pre and it has a very small display and keyboard. Not real user-friendly.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
