Happy New Year!


There are only so many hours left in 2013, so as the editor – or founder or whatever you want to call me – of this site, it feels only right that I get the last word in. And you know what, that last word isn’t going to be about all of the travels we took over the last 12 months, how many reviews we put out, how right or wrong we were throughout, or any other form of internet showboating. Don’t get me wrong, we love what we do and wouldn’t change it for the world, but the end of year isn’t about that. No sir, I only have one thing to say, which over the last four years has never changed. And that is…

Thank you.

Thank you, fabulous readers of this site. I don’t know if you are keeping track, but we really have been doing this for over four years now. This is what we do on a daily basis. And when I say “we,” I’m not talking about the Droid Life staff – I’m talking about you, you, you, and you – everyone who reads this site – plus the DL staff. We are a community; always have been. We are tech enthusiasts, smart asses, young pups, and old wise ones. We are like-minded and not-so-like-minded, sometimes-Apple-jabbing, Android aficionados. As a group, we are awesome, all of us, especially when we get together every day to talk tech.

The fact that we have been able to hangout together for this long, through this medium, and through so many amazing times, brings a smile to my face. So again, thank you, friends. Let’s do it again next year, and for many more years to come.

Please be safe tonight. We’ll see you in 2014.

    Thanks DL staff and community. This is a great site and, like for many of you, it’s become part of my daily (at least week-daily) routine. Many thanks to everyone. Hope you all have a wonderful 2014.

    “No sir, I only have one thing to say, which over the last four years has never changed. And that is…”

    as i was reading, i was like this is it, Baby K premiere. ha

    i love DL. one of the many sites i visit on a daily basis. it’s like a rom flasher’s addiction to flash the latest and greatest rom, i have to check DL on a daily basis for all my android needs. if i dont check….well you know….i just have to check my DL.

    “Android aficionados” sounds so fancy! makes me feel like im an i*hone user. ha

    (i*hone = oldschool DL).

    THANK YOU DL STAFF and Community. Great Community.

    Started following this site about three years ago and it’s easily my #1 source. My wife has finally made the switch to Android this year and now she checks this site regularly as well. Great job, guys!!

    That was a really nicely written post, Kellen. Thanks a million for all you do. I wish you a Happy New Year and I hope 2014 is full of joy with your newborn son. πŸ™‚

    Someone laughed at me once because of my lack of knowledge about smartphones/Android. I decided to educate myself and found this site. I’ve learned a lot and I like you all. πŸ™‚
    Happy New Year!!!

    Great post. The thing that got me reading this site back in the OG days was the scoops and the well-formed opinions. But the thing that’s kept me coming back for four years is the community. I don’t know what it is about pink that attracts the best kind of people, but no where else have I consistently seen such smart, funny, and respectful comments.

    So cheers to the staff and to my fellow commenters. Here’s to more great years to come!
