The Blind Spot

Just read a thought-provoking post over at the Public Bikes Blog. It definitely has me considering to ride more often not just because it’s a smart thing to do, but because it’s sometimes better to remove those things we are so accustomed to we don’t usually see. Here’s a snippet:

08302010169 - Share on Ovi
My full review of the Samsung Epic 4G has gone live over at Brighthand. A pretty solid device for the most part, with only a few glaring issues that might be show stoppers for some (and not as often seen for others). As usual, there’s my additional dump of Epic 4G pics at Ovi Share. Enjoy.
