The old (possibly fake) part looked like it was machined from a billet of aluminum, just like the 5/5S.The newer (also possibly fake) part looks like it was either stamped out of a sheet or extruded into a  mold.Which could indicate that it is made from Liquidmetal (if it's real). Yes, Liquidmetal is more expensive than aluminum (at least the platinum alloy Liquidmetal.)But hey, I'd gladly pay a little more for a nearly scratch-proof shell.  No need for a case ever...
 Have briefly played with a Tizen-based Samsung phone prototype.  And it was absolutely terrible.But lots of 1.0 releases are terrible.  And Tizen is a way for Samsung to take control of its own destiny. Because who knows what the f-ck Google will try to do to Samsung by clamping down on skins and mods?Tizen is a last resort if and when Google really does screw Samsung badly.  (Badly again, judging by Samsung Gear.)Time to make some popcorn! 
Yay open! Oh. Wait. Never mind.
 That means that Tom Dickson* is more reliable than Sonny Dickson.Because iPhones always blend.http://www.willitblend.com *He is the founder of Blendtec, makers of enormously powerful blenders (1560 to 2400 watts.) P.S.  One kilowatt is equivalent to 1.34 horsepower.  Do the math.

 This all reminds me of Fritz Lang's landmark film "Metropolis" (1927).Oh, and yes, there's a female "fox" bot in the movie.  Here she is: 
Of course, we're not seeing the "real" campus.  3 miles northeast and 1 mile underground, with a high-speed elevator / rail system between that and the decoy "spaceship" campus in Cupertino.  You heard it here first.   /s
 Obviously "lost market share in mobile" means "market share lost by not selling Office for iPad."Corporate IT didn't jump through the buy-Surface-to-get-mobile-Office hoop.Now Office for iPad is a smash hit.  And I think it would have been a smash hit years ago as well. But "reinvigorate sales growth in PCs"?  Good luck with that.The PC market is mostly commoditized.  Generic.  And it's hard to get the market excited about generic products.PC sales will rise and fall with...
