Exactly. Apple is waiting for Sammy to show them what NOT to do.

I don't think these things will take off until they can be made into contact lenses.

Laughed until I remembered that this is exactly how Apple operates: wait (for years) and watch everyone else fail, then come up with something that does it right.

Go ahead and do what you want/need to do, and spare us the posturing.

They're trying to increase site engagement which drives revenue through ad impressions. It's not journalism.

If reading Samsung articles is bothersome, don't click on the links. Pretty easy solution. It's the same advice that should be taken by anyone who is irritated by something they come across on a website ... no one is holding a metaphorical gun to your head, forcing you to read the article. Life's too short to be upset by perceived "link whoring," or whatever you want to call it! :)

So a site called "NewMothersSupport.net" should have postings exclusively about being a new father?

Why not? New mothers can read it and teach the fathers.

How the heck many of us go out and "teach" anti-Apple fanboys about what their products are doing?!

It looks like samsung has learned something indeed, and that is to have the copy machine ready.

If you don't think it pays to keep track of what the competition is doing, then I don't know what to say. To call it whoring, calling that a stretch is saying it mildly.

The Bloomberg article doesn't even quote the Samsung Exec as referencing or implying Apple as a cause for their return to this market.

Wha? Which article did you read that would cause you to think this?

I just don't see the problem of learning what Apple's competitors are doing. We can say that's a cool feature or just pan the idea.

Unfortunately, Samsung advertising and marketing has been very creative in the past few years. I suspect fans of Samsung will wait in line for a $1,500 pair of goggles that do very little since they wait in line for "smartphones" that do very little.

Does that actually have any effect? Opinions of the anti-Apple contingent seem based on ignorance and acceptance of competing propaganda.

?We?ve been preparing the watch product for so long,? said Lee Young Hee, executive vice president of Samsung?s mobile business. ?We are working very hard to get ready for it. We are preparing products for the future, and the watch is definitely one of them.?

I bet you Samsung got some prototype smartwatch ready but waiting for Apple to release their first to see how people react to the product.  After that Samsung will make changes to their own smartwatch.  It like monkey see monkey do.

I remember seeing this at CES a few years ago... probably just building on top of this by adding android, newer tech etc.

Not sure what kind of interest this will generate... honestly, I don't see what kind of functions this will introduce that a smartphone cant...

Everyone is a whore to someone else, or in the words of Bob Dylan: "you're gonna have to serve somebody."

 

The important thing is to use protection so you don't catch something from the Samsung articles.
