I used to hate on Android because I was an Apple fan...
Now I've gotten to know it a bit more due to work and now I hate on it because of the actual miserable pile of crap that it is. It is way worse than I even imagined it was.
My 12 and 14 yr old kids at the time had no problem operating a nexus 7.
What a great ad something like this would make (instead of some of the self-absorbed nonsense that's currently being trotted out by Apple)!
Give me a bloody break. It's #31 out of the 33 'still' wallpaper choices that Apple offers. Moreover, the company never shows something like that cr4p in its ads or collateral material, unlike Samsung which is leading with it.
This headline that I just saw says it all: "Deal Alert: Sears Offers $105 Off, Free Case with Pre-order of 10.5” Samsung ...DailyTech"
How pathetic it that......
I don't think the point is against buying the table, as much as it is a statement on how easy it is to upgrade to the latest software once you make the purchase. Basically, what the Android arena is presenting is a model whereby to upgrade one must purchase a new piece of hardware even if that is not the desire. This seems to work fine in the cell phone arena but I'm not so sure it has the same affect for tablets. Only time will tell if this strategy is maintainable or not. Personally, I like to have my hardware for more than 6months to a year and just upgrade the software. Much less hassle.
Putting a product on 'sale' before it goes on sale?
And, Apple's iPad Air being bundled with iTunes stuff when it was announced as a pre-order at your "local Apple chain"? I'd like to see the evidence.
So after their criminally bad fingerprint sensor that got blasted in reviews for being completely useless, instead of taking the time to go back to the drawing board and re-engineer it, they just go ahead and slap it on their tablets too. This is Samsung's DNA, which shows you the level of absolute contempt they have towards their users consider Samsung having contempt for the users that keep them in business.
I think that's a bit strong of an assumption. Samsung suffers from design by committee, and a kitchen sink mentality. These are quirks many technology companies have but doesn't mean they hate us as customers.
