Community Corner
As Applemania dies down a bit and Bendgate raises its head you’ve just got to love what some bright spark has done to Salvador Dali’s The Persistence of Memory pointed to in this post by Andrew manning, and again when he compares the iPhone6 with the bendable LG G Flex, there’s been much talk about the Little Green Robot and Nexus 6 being a Motorola 5.2” - or is it 5.9” - or both - in this post by Stephen Lowe and my interest was sparked by Allen Cross’s post about Pocket Casts making it (in Beta at least) to your desktop browser of choice.
