Samsung has poop all over themselves. they have yet to own up to the 7" Galaxy charade. probably a million or more unsold in warehouses. that can never be upgraded beyond Android 2.x. how long can they hide the loss/truth? then the "V" tab hype. it's great! oh, wait a minute, it's not. but buy one anyway, you suckers in GB. and now we have actors and vaporware. except the 10.1 prototype is not as thin as the press release says. and they get busted for...
"Samsung has delayed its own plans to release a Honeycomb tablet after deciding that its original design was "inadequate" compared to the new iPad 2. It hopes to have its thinner models available by June." ok ... so the "10.1" Galaxy tablet that was unveiled at some trade show in February will never come to market, right? even tho it was hyped on the web a lot and then Samsung denied there would be any delay despite its boss guy commenting that they needed to make...
you're right. no doubt some masochists really enjoyed all those browser freeze ups.
Flash is the past. it won't disappear overnight, but gradually. in 10 years, all gone. maybe sooner. technology evolves. the fact that Apple iOS has been such a huge success without it proves beyond argument it is unnecessary in market terms already. and the no-Flash high-value iOS user base continues to grow rapidly, speeding up adoption of alternatives. once HTML5 is fully outfitted then Flash will be literally obsolete as a tool - just a year or two more. so Adobe is...
so lemme see ... the POS 7" Galaxy tab that Samsung shipped 2.1 million of late last year - and can't be upgraded to Honeycomb - is still for sale? with probably well over a million sitting unsold in warehouses? and the not-as-advanced "Galaxy 10.1" tab that Samsung announced in February is - or is not - going on sale soon anyway? http://www.engadget.com/2011/02/13/s...mb-dual-camer/ while this newer version Galaxy 10.1 tab is going on sale "this summer" on top...
this BB tab is really lame. but it will be HP that kills it. HP is the other big guy that has a first class world-wide enterprise support operation (besides MS). and its new TouchPad will be aimed squarely at the enterpirse market, rather than the consumer market that the iPad has nailed and Android wishes for. RIM is the next Palm. start the death watch.
this merger hangs Sprint out to dry. they can't survive. Verizon will gobble them up. and then prices go up for everything. especially data. the telcos have been lusting for this chance for years. to get a bigger piece of the action. this is going to cost us all a lot. take off the rose colored glasses.
it will take some time for AT&T to get regulatory approvals and then get the networks synced - probably just the new HSPA service. not this year, guys. 2012. the downside is of course less price competition. AT&T will now has a GSM monopoly in the US. and many can never buy a Verizon CDMA phone because they travel. this is a mixed blessing.
excellent DED take on the iPad 2 with iOS 4.3. especially the Post-PC section: "As long as you approach iPad as a post-PC device rather than expecting it to be a drop in replacement for a PC (whether a notebook or netbook or Slate PC-like device), few of the iPad's limitations will irk you. The ones that remain will be related to Apple's iOS development (meaning they should be addressed quickly, given the company's record-setting turnaround on both completing and...
the reasons for NetFlix success are simple - a great low price for the service and no time limits on watching anything. snailmail BD's and a huge DVD catalog (which can be ripped) add options for those looking for more. it's a great deal for consumers, hence its 60%+ market share. all the more more expensive a la carte services like iTunes can offer for the home viewer is earlier access to the big hits. but only the impatient really need that. and you can just do it the...
