Strangely enough, seem to be a lot of Samsung experts on this pro Apple forum but I'll throw in my 2 cents.   For those who say HTC and Sony should be ahead, HTC has nice phones but they have done a poor job at keeping Android up to date and their battery life sucks.  From the early reviews I've seen, The HTC One is not looking good in that department either so I'm ruling it out despite the fact that Zoe looks pretty cool.   As for Sony, they have the camera that will...
  I think the FUD and out-there comments are a result of a lot of users being disappointed by the slow pace of technology adoption that Apple has had in their phones over the past few iterations.  LTE, 4" and Maps are the big thing this year for them and those have been implemented in Android phones (the higher end ones) for over 2.5 years.  It does look like Apple is stepping up their release cycle and going with a June release which will keep them in the game.  The pace...
I'm confused, wasn't this the same forum that was praising Koh a few months ago for her due diligence and love of American style justice?    Now she is the scum of the earth and apparently on the payroll of Samsung.  The evidence you are presenting is overwhelming.  /s   Sarcasm aside, for those who think Samsung is going to fork Android, they will not.  They are branching out with a new OS called Tizen 2.0 - if they forked Android, they would doom themselves...
  Actually, I can name two more fantastic apps that you will never get on iOS.  Tasker and Cyberus.  Tasker was the reason why I left iOS because it allowed me to have complete control over my phone based on geographical position and that was 3 years ago.   As for iTunes, can you browse iTunes on the web and buy things without actually having to install it?  I have tried and I cannot do it.  With Google play, I can surf iOS at work, buy apps and then remotely install them...
  Okay, I'll bite.   So say that I'm the head of IT security for Home Depot and we have just switch all of our phones for  middle management and such over to the iPhone because we experienced some downtime on Rim/Blackberry's network (Plus seemed to be asleep at the wheel).   I would be disappointed by this news because I was promised an enterprise level security system that was at least on par with Rim's phones.  Instead now I have the potential for my phones to be...
  The issue at hand is that AI used language in a way that is not traditional to what gamers are used to hearing.   In the gaming industry "Exclusives" tend to me 6 to X months deals and people who are old school gamers (PC/Console) are conditioned to this type of terminology and deal lengths.  Additionally, it is not uncommon to see some games take a week to release between systems so when someone like Drobforever (and myself) see the world exclusive used in conjuction...
Yeah, this kind of censorship just doesn't make sense.  Either apply your rules universally or just let people think for themselves.  This inconsistency is not portraying them in a very good light.  If they want to be seen as the "Safe" platform, then do it and lock everything down so no children or adults can accidentally ever see porn.  If they can't or won't do it, open it up.
When I was with Rogers (2 years ago), I was paying $136.50/month (taxes in) and that gave me 6GB, 1000 minutes of talk time, + all the regular features.   I finally dumped them and moved to Wind Mobile (no contract) where I have been paying $46.50/month for unlimited everything (data is throttled after 6GB) the last 2 years and as a result of my lower bills, I can now afford to outright buy a new phone every year and still have enough left over for a couple of fine...
  All their 'revolutionary' products have been improvements over existing products.  Apple is great at taking an existing product and making it accessible to everyone and I think that is where their core strength lies.  Their UIs are easy to use, their products look great and they are great at shrinking down existing technology to razor thin proportions.  iPod, iTunes, App Store, iPhone, iPad were not the first of their kind but they definitely the firsts to knock it out...
  I'm pretty sure Samsung is also happy not to copy Apple's stock performance either.
