PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless On July 15th the latest Android super-phone was released by Motorola and Verizon Wireless. All hail the Droid X. The release was not without controversy though. The Droid X, while greatly raising the bar for Android phones in general, does so at the expense of the very power users and community that made the original Droid the gotta-have phone it became. Alienating this group may have far reaching consequences for Motorola.

My wife, 3 cousins, brother, mother and father all use HTC products because I recommended them and I recommended them because I can load custom roms. While they personally might not engage in loading custom roms they do rely on me to help them make their purchases

You should consider THEIR needs, not your own needs or tastes, and only then recommend something. If they don't need the ability to load custom ROMs and don't benefit from it but you still recommend a phone with such an ability just because you personally happen to like that feature then you've just done a bad recommendation.

Like most techies, his self-esteem in the "real world" is so low, he relies on his "computer knowledge" to impress those who use computers/phones/mp3 players/toasters as tools ... and not as holy grails of self-worth.

Likely, they snicker behind his back when he leaves.
