A new survey shows that iPhone 4 users have nearly identical experiences whether they’re on Verizon or AT&T’s network. While satisfaction levels were nearly equal, AT&T’s iPhone users reported over twice as many dropped calls. If call quality is your top priority, Verizon is still the better choice. In other news, Google released an update to its Chrome browser that will help users stay safe online. Now, when you download a file, Chrome will check to see if the file contains malicious data. You can test out the change in beta with the full update being released soon. And finally, mobile ad company Adzookie introduced a new campaign that promises to pay your mortgage. The catch? You must agree to have your house painted with an advertisement for the company. All homeowners are eligible and your mortgage will be paid for as long as your house is a billboard.
