    "No Matter the Sex, We All Like to Text – While both sexes agreed that texting while driving should be illegal (89 percent of both men and women), it seems that neither men nor women are fully practicing what they preach. Nearly 25 percent of both male and female respondents reported sending at least one text message while driving per week. Men seem to be the most heavy texters with 36 percent of those who text while driving indicating they send an average of seven or more texts per week while on the road. In contrast, only 23 percent of women admitted to texting as frequently."

  • "If you’ve been wondering when you can get your hands on the DROID X, Motorola and Verizon Wireless have both confirmed that tomorrow is the day. The DROID X will be available both online and in Verizon Wireless stores beginning tomorrow, July 15, for $199.99 after a $100 mail-in-rebate (with a new two-year agreement).

    "There was initially some concern that the DROID X would suffer the same parts shortages as the HTC EVO and HTC Incredible, but Verizon is now stating that there will be plenty of DROID X devices to go around."
