Review: Gorillamobile for iPhone 4

Regular readers will know that I am completely enamored of my iPhone 4. I have yet to have it let me down when I need it to do something for me. Even on AT&T’s reviled network it still performs well. (When AT&T is absent I just fire up my Sprint MiFi and connect via wifi).…

Rant: Are you a dinosaur?
