Somehow Verizon delivered this baby to me a week before launch.  Best DROID I’ve owned to date.  It’s bigger than the thunderbolt, yet fit’s in my pocket.  The Beats Audio and included headphones are outstanding.

Adnroid FTP server app

Posted in DROID, Gaming and Gadgets on May 12th, 2010 by Giraffe Hunter

Sometimes connecting to my DROID via USB to upload music is a pain in the butt. This free app is a simple FTP server that gives you direct access to your DROID file system.

1. Go To the market on your Droid, hit the Search, and search for “FTPServer”

2. Install FTPServer
By Andreas Kiebig

3. Goto Settings and Edit the following:
User: Enter a username
Pass: Enter a password
Port: 2002 (or any above 2000)
Default dir: \sdcard
Accept Wifi Connections and check off all that apply

4. When you launch the app your current IP appears in the top line of the application. Use Filezilla client to connect.

Keep in mind you want to stick to WiFi and not your mobile network otherwise serious mobile charges may incur.

Motorola Droid

Posted in DROID, Gaming and Gadgets on November 16th, 2009 by Giraffe Hunter

I’m loving the Droid, this is the first time I have left the Blackberry home and trusted a push device since the iPhone debacle.  One of my favorite features is the built in GPS.  I put the address in my meeting notifications, when my reminders pop up I simply press the address, it opens Google maps, I press navigate and I’m getting turn by turn directions with spoken street names and real-time traffic info within seconds.


Here is a photo of the Droid and I out for a stroll


The amazon. com application is pretty nuts too.  I can check pricing on items just by taking a photo of the box or scanning the bar code.  The app reports back the pricing on amazon and saves the item on my page.  I could also buy it from the phone if I want.  I’m going to give her a few more days them probably give up the blackberry, yes I said “Give up the Blackberry”
