Now that Motorola have rolled out their Droid phone which is meant to go head to head and compete with Apple’s iPhone 3GS, everyone seem to be curious to know more about the new Motorola phone and form an idea of whether the phone is good enough or not. Thanks to Jon Rettinger, a decision of purchase becomes easier after watching his video review comparing the two phones.

In his review, Jon compares the two phones from different aspects, following is a simple summary of the main points, and below it you can watch the full review:

  • Browser Speed – Wi Fi: Droid loads web pages faster
  • Browser Speed – 3G: iPhone loads web pages faster thanks to AT&T.
  • Multi-touch Capabilities: iPhone makes life easier with its multi-touch gestures, unfortunately Droid lacks in this area.
  • Text Entry: Text entry is done only one way on the iPhone through the virtual keyboard. Motorola Droid offers both a virtual keyboard and a full slide out qwerty keyboard.
  • Customization: The iPhone is known for being closed-source and not offering many of customization, while Droid offers high-level and more freedom for customization.
  • Maps: Droid’s - thanks to Android 2.0 – offers free turn by turn instructions.
  • Apps: There are more apps in Apple App store, but more free Apps for Droid.

Top 10 Climate Change Twitter Lists You Want to Follow

A couple of weeks ago, Twitter – finally – rolled out the “lists” feature that allows people on Twitter to create lists and add their tweeps under their different lists in order to categorize them and manage their Twitter experience in a much better way. While Twitter Lists are still new to most users, hundreds of thousands of lists have been already created, and while the number of followers have been an indication of how influential a Twitter user is, Twitter Lists emerged to give a more accurate measurement of influence. Mashable had already posted a guide last week to help people understand Twitter Lists.

With the enormous amount of Twitter Lists emerging each day, a third-party service Listorious emerged to make our lives easier. It maintains a categorized directory of Twitter lists and allows you to search or browse through lists by category, and find the most popular lists. It is now easier than ever to find a list of experts to follow on Twitter in one simple click.
