I finally replaced my quickly aging HTC Hero. I have to say I'm not surprised by the excellent build quality of this phone. It has a very solid feel to it. Now the 3D is a little gimicky but that's not why I bought the phone. The speed is what sold me. There is no lag. None. Period. The Google Voice integration is pretty good. And the picture quality is also excellent. People deemed the originally EVO an iPhone killer. The EVO 3D kills the original EVO. With that being said, I believe that Apple is now required to release the iPhone 5 this year. I have yet to find anything I don't like about this phone. I even feel that it gets better reception, but it may just be a placebo effect. The stock keyboard isn't bad, but I am a fan of the swype keyboard. I strongly suggest this phone.
Overall - 9/10

The amount of domain name squating is ridiculous. I am searching for the perfect domain name for a clients, went to godaddy... It's already registered. So I punch in the address and of all places where does it take me? It redirects to a yahoo page saying geocities is no longer available. I figured yahoo would have taken their page, explaining that they got rid of geocities, down a few years ago. I couldn't tell you the last time I saw a geocities site. But back to the main point of this story. So, after a who is search now I need to call the owner of a domain that looks like hasn't been updated in a decade. I'm hoping for the best. I'm hoping the owner is reasonable and doesn't want a first born for the domain. I understand these people pay for the domain, but that shouldn't mean they can sit on it for years never using it constructively. But it's all part of the job.
