Gaz doesn’t buy an iPhone 3GS for himself and Guy doesn’t buy a Classic Car…because we’re all about the giving. Some great feedback from you our listeners and Gaz has some fun floaty-like tips that he shares. Guy’s attempts fail miserably at first, but he get’s the hang of it eventually. Sound like a normal MyMac Podcast? It truly wasn’t, but it was weirdly wonderful.
As an iPhone 3GS owner, I’ve been watching with interest as companies have started releasing Android phones with larger screens. The Motorola Droid X and the HTC both have 4.3 inch screens, compared to the iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4′s 3.5 inch display. The Droid X is 12.3 mm taller and 6.9 mm wider than the iPhone 4, and weighs almost .7 ounces more. Dell is going to be introducing a phone that’s being branded as an android tablet, the Dell Streak, with a 5 inch display.

So, especially after seeing the iPad spark massive interest, it’s understandable that some of the other smartphone manufacturers would be tempted to think that making the screens on their devices larger is a great idea. But there is a flip side to this, and Cnn.com has an article talking about the problem of phones too big for pockets.
