The best time to release these phones is out of sync with Apple. That's what Samsung did with the Galaxy S3. By releasing it while iPhone sales were declining they got a lot of press coverage for being the best selling phone. These other phones are going to compete against the iPhone at its peak. It may be that it's easier for non-Samsung Android phones to compete against the iPhone than a new Samsung phone. iPhone customers probably aren't going to buy an Android phone...
Looks absolutely awesome to me. Not sure what there is to complain about.
What we really need is 3D models with Street View level data. I like the information Street View gives me - I can "walk" a path before I go there and figure out exactly where I need to go - but the UI is clunky and tedious to use because you can't do it fluidly. Combining the two technologies would give the best results, or at least once the hardware can handle it. Right now it feels like neither solution is perfect although Street View is more useful.
I can see the court case hurting Samsung's brand. People might start dumping their Samsung phones because they're now considered knock-offs. The tech media is so anti-Apple that it's difficult to tell what normal people think. Almost every article or comment is trying to find a negative spin for Apple whereas in the real world people tend to think highly of Apple and are probably less likely to defend a Samsung.
This is such great news. When Microsoft was allowed to freely copy Apple, the result was more than two decades of stagnation in the development of user interfaces. When a company like Microsoft can get away with intellectual property theft, the result is that a company that is institutionally incapable of innovation (Microsoft/Samsung/Google) can become the main benefactor of the innovations of an innovative company (Apple) and innovation will inevitably cease. The best...
I wonder if the sensor is small enough to incorporate it into the rectangle on the home button...
  When I say it replaces the iPod touch I just mean it'll be $199 and there will no longer be an "iPhone without the phone" device. Instead there'll be a smaller iPad for gaming/e-reader/etc (probably with a cellular data option) and a larger iPod nano as a dedicated media player (no App Store). Obviously this isn't going to cover every usage scenario, but neither does the existing range of products. Right now I think the iPod touch isn't really a compelling device. I...
I'm sticking with my original prediction: This replaces the iPod touch at $199. The iPod touch has been promoted primarily as a gaming device and an iPad mini makes more sense there. There will be a larger touchscreen iPod nano for people who want an mp3 player. I don't think it makes sense to keep the iPod touch around when you have this iPad mini.
  The profits belong to the shareholders.   Anyway, I don't see how this is any different from a sportsman saying they're not in it for the fame and money, even if they have a lot of both. Fame and money are a byproduct of being good at something. Neither does the sportsman have to shun fame and donate all his money.   The idea that corporations exist only to generate profit is a recent and utterly disastrous invention. Corporations can have all sorts of goals, just like...
This judge needs to be fired.
