Wait a second. So Anand Chandrasekher worked for Intel before Qualcomm? So he puts his foot in his mouth and insults Apple while at Intel, and instead of learning his lesson he does it again at Qualcomm claiming Apples 64bit A7 was a gimmick? Does this guy ever learn? And shame on you, DED, for not catching that and putting it in the article.
Figures. Every time Apple introduces something (if they actually do make a stylus) there's always people bringing up old Jobs quotes from another era (technology wise) and taking them out of context to try and find a way to bash Apple or Jobs.
So? Nowhere did Jobs say anything about SCREEN size. He was talking about PHONE size. From Jobs position, with the technology available at the time (processor and GPU performance, battery technology) and Apples requirements for responsiveness and customer interaction, a large screen phone was stupid.Why is it we get people who always take quotes from Jobs that are many years old and apply it to technology that's available today? At the time Jobs said it he was CORRECT....
Why would anyone buy Softcard for IP?   Just use the newest EMVco technology that Apple Pay uses. Then Google Wallet would be just as secure, convenient and private as Apple Pay is.   No, wait. Google could no longer mine your transactions if they switched, so it's doubtful they would. Who cares about customer security and privacy?
 It's pathetic. 8 cores (4 high performance and 4 lower) and a higher clock speed and it's still slower. And it's over a year older than the A7, which in technology is like an eternity. Plus the Exynos 5433 isn't even a Samsung processor - it's just a copy of an ARM design. Despite Samsung telling us all along they were going to start custom designing processors. Well, Samsung, where is your custom processor. Even more pathetic is the Note 4 is running in 32bit mode....
And in 7 out of 9 CPU benchmarks (as tested by Anand) the iPhone 5S from last year is faster than the Exynos 5433. What a pathetic processor.
Apple doesn't own a patent on one-touch fingerprint sensors. Though they likely have several on the underlying technology. If Samsung makes a new sensor with a different technology they'll be OK.The real question is can you make one as good as Touch ID without violating any Apple/Authentc IP?Even funnier is what the haters will say when Samsung effectively abandons swipe for touch. That's basically admitting Apples is better.
Samsung doesn't know where they're headed. Invested in making KNOX, which has been a failure. Then making a deal with Google to share KNOX IP for use in Android to improve security. Then partnering with BB on mobile security. Now they want to buy BB? Then there's the newly announced Tizen smartphone (2nd time around) and switching their smart TV's from Android to Tizen.   This is a company without any clear direction.
 Quote:  Stop lying. Manufacturers (at least all the major ones) belong to the OHA. The OHA has strict rules on what you can and can't do with Android. You can't modify Android such that it breaks compatibility with Google Play Store Apps or any Google services. And you can't release a device with an Android fork (just ask Acer how that went when they tried with their Aliyun phone- Google stepped in and shut them down). You're confusing AOSP with Android that OEMs use....
Yes. How many times has he stated that Google Play Services provides updates and security patches? I've explained to him several times that items in the actual OS itself can't be patched by Google Play Services. And here we are, with a security flaw that Google Play can't fix and requires the OEMs to recompile and issue that patch themselves.
