Tech Central - More than just mobile!

What is Tech Central?

Binary Outcast Tech Central is the successor of the BinOC acquired site Mobile Central. We have decided to take the core concepts and goals for Mobile Central and expand them to all of technology and beyond.

We will still have mobile news and reviews but we are not limiting our selves to the scope of just mobile device technology. Look forward to a much broader content base including editorials, analyses, and even guides and tips!
