The Truth About "4G"

4G is a term that I have been hearing more and more of these days. It began with wireless companies boasting that they have "the next best thing" that will leave 3G in the dust. But now I am even hearing it from people who are not technologically inclined, and who have began to believe that the use of "4G" by these wireless companies is the actual definition of the term. Honesty the use of "4G" by these wireless companies really grinds my gears. In short there are NO wireless companies that have actual 4G networks. So allow me to shed some light on the word 4G and its real meaning.

Editorial: My Phone Sucks

So this is my phone
The HTC EVO 4G, and I hate it. The phone I had before the EVO was the Samsung Instinct. Yea I know major upgrade right? Don't get me wrong when I first got the EVO I loved it, this is much more then a phone we are talking about here. Most of the things you can do on a computer can also be accomplished on this phone. This phone was rated as one of the Best Android Phones of 2010, and is praised by all of my friends who own it. So then why would I hate such a seemingly great phone? My major problem with this phone is the battery life. At first it was a minor annoyance, easily made up for by the power and beauty of the phone, but after three days of having no phone for 12+ hours because it died in the middle of the day because of the terrible battery life it became a number one priority.  Oh how I hate this phone let me recount the ways.
