The reality is, at the end of the day all of these media boxes are just becoming a commodity to move content you're already paying/paid for through to your screen. Period. One will likely select which one they want based on the vendor providing the user the most content. Buy stuff through iTunes and use iTunes Match? Apple TV. Prime customer with free Amazon Instant Video? Amazon box. Google Play and Google Apps? Chromecast. All of them (eventually) will have the same...
Typical Daniel, rely on lofty insults and stupidity than facts. By all means point me to a link that he says he wants to drop in replace android with tizen as you wrote in your article, vs what Tizen is as a PR piece since they are a backer of the platform. Oh that's right it doesn't exist. In fact you prove my point by bringing up windows phone. Just because if they make a tizen phone, it does not translate to looking at a drop in replacement for Android as fact . Merely...
 There is absolutely no fact to this rumor. None. It is pure internet conjecture up there with the Apple TV set. Reporting it is fact is not even journalism now matter how many times you repeat it, is still just a lie, making this whole thing an editorial.  Samsung went with Tizen for the Gear 2 largely because they had to; their own extension of Android was deplorable the first go around (as was that POS of a product) , and they insisted launching another one before...

I would yes, my point holds for any cloud. Though docs are typically smaller in size and trivial, the same points apply. By and large media (pictures, music, videos) take up the most space on any mobile device, typically GBs at a time... the concept of using a cloud to store and push/pull all that as a primary alternative to local storage, when most data plans are a a few GBs a month makes no sense to me. Am I supposed to preplan all my stuff for a flight? Strategize for...
 You are actually incorrect for the record. Amazon is littered with reviews of all kinds of devices for the 128GB both old and new. Cards were released after device documentation you link to was tested or written.  
My actual take away, given the chart, is that a base install of iOS and Android take up about the same amount of space as the two flagships, the Nexus 5 and iPhone 5S give you 12.2xGB space available.
Since local storage is always available and high speed transfer, it pretty clearly trumps expensive carrier data caps, hunting for wifi or waiting for things to upload/download, regardless of whether it's built in storage or an SD card. Carriers want you to use the cloud, they see $$.  
This has gone on in storage forever, it's hardly new. Are people still outraged their laptop drives aren't the full available space 20 years later? My rMBP had quite a bit less than 'advertised' out of the box especially with a recovery partition. I expected it. It doesn't matter who's logo is on the outside, it's just how it works.   Now having nearly half the space in the S4 taken up by system is laughably bad / near inexcusable still, but intentionally left out of the...
