How ’bout an Android XDA challenge for you WinPhonatic? Hey holy crap winphonatic.com is available, suggest one of you grab it and sell it to Smith, might make a few bucks profit if you make a good pitch. It’s actually a good domain name now that I think for another ten seconds about it. I mean, it’s no "mobility digest" which just screams Windows Phone fanaticism and screams technology in general just as loudly and sexily, but hey. Where was I.
We were talking about trying to branch out slightly from this winphonanza (also available but not as good), and I thought it would be interesting, particularly for our veteran readers, if we challenged each other to write an app review about an app of a platform foreign to the writer. Yeah, subtracts some authority from your review, not having used the thing, but it adds a layer that is tres interessant. So Murani, here’s a good layup, which you can twist into an anti and or pro Android rant: PDroid – The Better Privacy Protection, privacy control thing.
Let’s talk a little stroll through XDA. BetterBatteryStats looks pretty serious for battery freaks, which you could spin to take cheap shots at Android battery life. Oh, android-wifi-tether comes in handy for those with lame carriers that disable the built-in tethering thing, also it tallies your usage, people thought it’s long-gone (Google took it off the market) but nope, right on Google Code.
Okay that’s enough. If you want to go crazy you can download the Android SDK and emulate before "reviewing" but the point here is to have some nerd fun with this. And branch out a tad. Like I said, we have Android phones hitting the site. Might get attention, like what business do these WinFreaks have reviewing android stuff… (not that the Android crowd shares your jingoist Microsoft mentality but you get the idea).
Or fuck it just copy and paste this whole thing (after registering winphonatic) and slap MobilityLeaks in the title after this gets a few replies about how stupid or possibly good an idea this sort of thing is for a weekend thing.
Oh, hey Murani, nice handbag you ******* sheriff.

Fine, I’ll post the damn thing myself. Maybe one of you can respond with a winpho app article of the bet-you-didn’t-know variety. Hey, which is better, winphonatics plural or winphonatic singular? I think singular. Ahh I’ll grab ’em both now, why not. As for the article, going to have to censor out ******* sheriff though, which is too bad because it’s pretty funny. Right Murani, you cat-******** womb-broom bell***?
