Goodbye Nexus S, Hello HTC One X

June 1, 2012 / Reviews, Technology / 5 Comments

May has been a month of multiple misfortunes, one of which involves the death of my beloved Nexus S. (The other is more personal and hence harder to write about.)

I attended my first GovCamp last Friday. I couldn’t make it to the keynotes (which I heard where great!) but managed to sit through a few of the breakout sessions.
