Take a trip to Barcelona in this week’s comments thread

What are you up to this weekend?

Our bosses do everything they can so we have weekends off around here. I love them for it, even though I’m that one guy who doesn’t mind “working” Saturday and Sunday in exchange for time off throughout the week. Having Monday be your Friday is pretty awesome.

All that goes out the window whenever there is a tech “thing” going on somewhere and we have to be there to cover it. This  [Read More…]

Your weekend comments thread is here, so take a break and chat it up

Whether working or playing (or both), everyone can enjoy a minute or two of internet-ing with friends.

I thought I would be taking advantage of a spell of warm weather and getting outside to spend some time with my favorite hobby — fiddling around with some woodworking tools — but instead, I’m stuck inside watching it rain on this dreary Saturday afternoon. Bleh. I need to get my mind clear and I have a chess set to get done  [Read More…]

A weekend comments thread for a mid-week Valentine’s Day

This week brings warm hearts and cold Olympic temperatures; and the brave souls who are part of each.

This weekend and the next will be filled with hearts and flowers for a lot of people because Valentine’s Day hits in the middle of the week. It’s apparent that whoever invented the holiday was single or it would have been like other occasions that get shifted around to come up on the weekend and I wouldn’t be trying to find  [Read More…]

Take a break and chat in this weekend’s comments thread

Everything stressful has been postponed until Monday.

CES is over, and we all saw a ton of stuff that someone hopes we want to buy. And we might even want to buy some of it, as long as it works as well as the product demo videos show. I get a kick out of the little things that end up on a table or in a booth there. The big stuff from the big names overshadows them, but silly  [Read More…]

Share your New Year’s Resolution in this weekend’s comments thread

Where we all resolve to chill out after a week of work.

I hope everyone had a great holiday, and the transition back to work after a few weeks of slacking off on the clock isn’t being too difficult. Sometimes the ramp up back to normal after the holidays can be horrible. And by sometimes I mean all the time.

Around here that means getting ready for CES and all the crapjunkcool things that will totally be  [Read More…]

The first annual Yuletide comments thread is here

Happy holidays from all of us here at Android Central!

When I was a kid, I remember sitting up all night on Christmas eve, trying to be quiet while playing with any Hanukkah presents I might have already been given. The joy of a two-culture family is strong, especially when you’re a kid and get double the gifts.

I’m not a kid anymore, at least on the outside. Now I get more pleasure from giving than I ever  [Read More…]

Relax and enjoy your weekend comments thread

The place to chat about stuff with friendly folks.

The weekend comments are back!

I’ve been out of commission on and off for the past few weeks getting some work done on my back, and have neglected the comments thread posts. Funny, saying “getting work done” on a body part makes it sound like an oil change. I could probably use one of those, too. It’s no fun getting old. But I digress.

The year is coming  [Read More…]

Your weekend comments thread is open for business

Reset and recuperate with friends both online and off.

Weekends are all about taking time to shake away the work-week brain dust. No matter your job, work can get stressful and everyone needs to find time to step away and remember how to enjoy themselves. That could mean something quiet and relaxing or extreme and adrenaline pumping, or anything in-between. And while you’re winding down from it all here’s the place where you can get together with friends and  [Read More…]

Have some fun in this weekend’s comments thread

The comments are open and ready!

Yet another week has passed, and we’re starting to get into the home stretch of 2017. At least in the smartphone world. But it’s cool — this time of the year makes for some great weekends.

Weekends at the end of summer are awesome. The weather isn’t quite as hot so it’s a great time to get outside and breathe some fresh air. Maybe fire up the grill, or take a hike, or  [Read More…]

Get to know each other in this weekend’s comments thread

The comments are open for business!

Another weekend is here, and with it comes yet another hurricane determined to wreck everything in its path. We hope everyone in its path can stay safe and has a home to return to once the weather settles down. Our thoughts go out to folks affected by Harvey and Irma, and we hope everything turns out for the best.

For those of us who aren’t facing Mother Nature’s wrath, here is your weekend  [Read More…]
