Review: Who needs a separate camera with these 3 phones?
NEW YORK - Phones have gotten so good at taking photos that I rarely bring along a stand-alone camera anymore. Of course, a phone is never going to replace a full-bodied, single-lens reflex camera, otherwise known as an SLR. There's just no way to squeeze a powerful, SLR-type lens into the small body of a phone. But many smartphones now match and even outperform point-and-shoot cameras.

Rodgers getting better, should be ready for Pack vs Lions
GREEN BAY - Fighting back sniffles in front of his locker, Aaron Rodgers sounded at times like he would be better off resting up in bed. But a lingering illness didn't keep the quarterback from Packers practice Tuesday. It doesn't sound like a strained left calf will keep him from playing in Sunday's showdown against the Detroit Lions, either, for the NFC North title.
