News thumb News for Tuesday April 9th 2013

So it’s time for the news. For me I just pre-ordered the HTC One Android phone and I’m really looking forward to getting it next week. It’s been a while since I’ve used an Android phone, my last two were both Windows Phones and they’re not bad but I find I just like Android better. For us I’ve got5 more reviews coming of course I’ve just been a bit under the weather, got a nasty sinus infection, my head just really hurts, got some antibiotics though so hopefully those will kick in shortly. So anyway, read the news and check back for some reviews being posted..  Got a great little Samsung portable Bluetooth speaker along with a few other things…
