Life is complicated enough without getting into hotwater with federal agencies so: TAKE NOTE Many things I review I got at no charge in exchange for an honest review. Consider this as informing you that ALL things I review may have been gotten at no charge. Realistically about 60% but in order to keep things above board just assume that I got the stuff free. Words like, “sponsored,” “promotion,” “paid ad” or even just “ad” are clear ways to disclose that you’re being paid to share information and links so BE AWARE that some of what I write can be described as an AD by the government. BTW I will NEVER say a product is great, super or even acceptable if it isn't whether I got it free or NOT!

Droid X Love Affair Continues
Droid X is the ability to take my dictation. I can sit here on the lanai, looking out over the lake and the seventh green while reveling in the weather and working on my blog. I can simply talk into my phone instead of typing. I use the voice command for texting all the time but this is the first I have composed blog posts on Gmail and sent them to myself. Then I just copy them into my blog. I love it!
I suspect voice command will become more ubiquitous in the future in all electronics. We certainly can’t make a tech support or customer service inquiry without being forced to deal with voice recognition. Right now I'm just amazed that the Droid X software recognized the word, ubiquitous.
Believe it or not, back in 1985 we spent a great deal of time trying to make a voice recognition software package work so we could sell it. We never did promote it due to our inability to get it to work well. Dragon Naturally Speaking was the first voice recognition software that we sold with any confidence.
Another thing about my Droid X, I spent some time looking at YouTube videos the other day. I was totally impressed with how easy it was to watch a video on my phone. I know that is old hat for my younger readers however for people my age it is amazing.
I do recommend using wifi instead of 3G as it is way faster.
The Droid X continues to exceed my expectations. I will continue to write about the features as I find and use them. The following are some excellent attachments or acceories for the Droid X.
