What's a Pixel Qi?

Jerry Fahrni: "The Pixel Qi screen offers the quick refresh of an LCD screen with the low power consumption and direct sunlight readability of e-ink. I'm excited about the Pixel Qi technology and have been waiting for their screens to appear in consumer devices for quite some time. In fact, I'm holding off my purchase of a Kindle DX until I see a Pixel Qi screen for myself. I'm just not a fan of reading PDF files on a backlit LCD display, and reading them on a Nook or Kindle isn't a great experience either." - Pharmacist by day, super geek by night, my brother ladies and gentlemen. Jay is the ultimate gadget man and does a lot of research into mobile devices because he absolutely loves them. This particular technology has been on his radar for the better part of a year and it's finally hitting the streets.

Android Review

Jerry Fahrni: "Overall the Droid is a great device. It is very powerful and flexible for people who need to feel like power users. Can the phone be used by the casual user? Of course, but it also offers the flexibility to go beyond that for those of us that like to play. I have about three weeks left on the trial period for my Droid and I plan on putting it through its paces during that time. At this moment the phone is definitely a keeper, but I have my eye on the HTC ERIS as well." - I have a lot of respect for my brothers opinion, and since he's a mobile freak, I take him at his word. He likes the Droid, it's probably a pretty decent phone.

As for me and my money, we shall go with an iPhone.
