Doesn't that say more about Windows?

Dick, Edison concerns me far more than anything that scamsung is up to with Tizen or independently in hardware. Intel has the interest and expertise to pull Apple down, in light of Apple moving away with continued development of ARM chips. I listened to your video with only half-interest until Wolfram was mentioned. I have written here before that I think Apple and Wolfram should work closely together. Steve Jobs and Stephen Wolfram were friends and the Mac has always been a Mathematica host. However, with SJ's passing I am concerned about Wolfram moving away. Interesting that Mathematica is mentioned in the video. I feel quite strongly that at any juncture, today's technical computing shapes tomorrow's CE, including at any time over the past 30 years or more. In the late 1990's I was granted a provisional patent on a system that ran Linux (Red Hat) and incorporated low-level sensors and I/O. This is exactly what all smartphones and tablets do today when talking to accelerometers, gyroscopes and other devices. My employer rejected an offer for the rights from a very big US industrial company and eventually, others flew past.
I believe that ultimately, Wolfram Research (http://www.wolfram.com/company/background.html) will be more important to modern computing than Google or scamsung and hope beyond hope that Apple is intimately familiar with developments, in a working capacity. Tim should nurture a relationship with Wolfram. Mathematica will run on Edison, it should run on the iPhone and iPad too. Algorithm and code development occur so quickly under Mathematica due to its fully symbolic capability. No other application offers the sheer power of Mathematica. Peruse http://mathematica.stackexchange.com to witness the capacity and rigour of Mathematica aficionados. Apple needs these minds working with their hardware.
With the iPad, Apple executed a brilliant end-run around the whole notion and industry of personal computing, obviating for many, many people the need even to own a PC. Others are fully aware of this, not the least Intel. scamsung attempted the same by pinching every possible design idea incorporated into the iPhone and using its industrial capability in an attempt to out-manufacture Apple. The pace of innovation is such that Apple could be sidelined very quickly if SJ-like vision is lost. Google, scamsung and Amazon won't be the culprits though but a new democratised, distributed, popular movement that recognises the power of low-level hardware running high-level applications such as Mathematica. I hope Apple is 'on the ball'.
All the best.

While I agree with you in principle, most products -- even personal electronics -- have some sort of [i]nearly[/i] set revision rate.
It probably took them a few minutes to receive the email saying that 1 of the other sites has changed and then 3.5 hours to write their own version of the article. AI hasn't done any original reporting for a long time. It's just slow copies of other sites, barrel scraping and opinions by DED.
AI is the catch-up TV of all the other sites like BGR, Macrumors, 9to5mac etc.
Since Apple does not have a wearable device of any kind, I am not sure what you mean. Are you saying Samsung is copying FUTURE Apple products. Pretty cool, if true.
OK, don't buy one then. A camera in a watch is very cool.
Yes, those TVs, tractors, ultra books -- all Google!
I don't want to be insulting, but do you really believe that 'Shamesung' reads as a devastating indictment of Samsung? It just reads as a childish insult to me. I really wish people would avoid it because it devalues their point.
I also think it's pretty hard to accuse Samsung of copying Apple products that don't exist. Almost every possible product has been rumoured from Apple including cars. You can't exactly decide well ok anyone who makes an electric car is copying off the Apple/Tesla rumours now can you?
I think you DO want to be insulting. I know I do.
Although actually, iPod nano was rather late to the game -- except for some missing features, this is DAMN close to a TI LED watch from 1975!
Have you walked down the street lately? Around 95% of the adult populace wears a watch.
The Mafia ripped off iPhone and iPad designs? I did NOT know that.

Stephen, is that you?
The trouble with being a fanboy, getting all your sustenance from the effluent Bilger disgorges periodically, is that you become incapable of independent thought or critical thinking.
Before Samsung developed Tizen, they developed another phone OS called Bada. I think most people on this forum would actually be astonished by how good it is. It had multiple features which made it a better OS at the time it was introduced than I think iOS was in it's first iteration and had several features Which iOS didn't adopt for some time. Samsung developed Bada with a small army of software engineers in India - more than 2000 of them, and that was back in 2010. I suspect they employ considerably more currently. Bada had several updates before being abandoned in favour of the development of Tizen. Samsung have an App store, they can produce and distribute OS updates, they supported developers who produced apps for Bada. Certainly Samsung don't have Google's scale, but I think they would be quite capable of developing the infrastructure - if they haven't already - to support Tizen robustly.
I am quite disgusted with the fanboyism, but in the interest of fairness, I had a Bada phone two years ago, and it really and truly sucked.
One ring to rule them all.

Maybe yes, maybe no.
That means that the first Gen won't have support, accessories, etc. But then again, those that bought one aren't exactly bright people.
