      I have a AirPort extreme.  thanks alot.

     

    so i need both my iPad/iPhone on the same GHz band?  Which is better to use the 2.5 or 5?  Will this hurt wifi speeds?




    no.. they can be on either as long as they are bridged.   

     

    i.e. you can have them on both the same frequency or one using 2.4Ghz and the other on 5Ghz.   They will see each other no problem. The issue for me was only with the SSID name being the same logical name for both 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz. They got confused somehow. 

     

    Also, I needed to sign off FaceTime and back on one time on all my devices to be able to receive/send calls from my iPhone.

    SERIOUSLY ! if all these firms didn't have Apple to copy from, could you just imagine the state of computing today ? - We would still be using the command line interface for everything ! - or worse, the abacus.

    I highly doubt that the "flow" feature on samsung phones will be used for much.

    Somebody needs to annex the Sudetenland, if you catch my meaning.

    "Samsung did not reveal a release date for Flow, but is currently holding sessions on the feature for developers during the conference."

     

    It took them this long to make the video.

    It will take a bit longer to implement it.

    Now that Samsung's Android marketshare has dropped rapidly over the past year, does it even still make sense for an Android developer to lock themselves into an Samsung specific ecosystem?  Seems like a shrinking value proposition now that the Android ecosystem is no longer mostly Samsung.

    That means the copy is still in gross.

    No, that would be a trademark, which Apple does own.

    Samsung can't even get their own devices to work together seamlessly.  At the very least, it's laughable that Samsung believes they have a consumer-culture that worships any sort of all-Samsung environment.



    Samsung sells garbage.  Their software sucks.  Their quality is horrible.  They don't support any devices once they are sold.



    Is Samsung really that dense?




    I agree that Samsung's is poor in supporting the customer long term.  Years ago when I was using a version of Windows I purchased a Samsung laser printer. Microsoft replaced Windows with a new version. My Samsung laser no longer worked properly. Samsung never updated the printer driver to solve the problem and I never purchased another Samsung product.

    WOW, a week ago when he jumped the gun and told me to go to another (Android centric) website because I made a comment about some of the sillier DED articles, I told him I've been an AI member for 5 years longer than him and I'd be here way after he loses interest. I also told him to calm it down after all of the nasty GT Advanced comments he was making.

     

    Funny he got banned a week later.

    [QUOTE]Ive also hit out again at companies that copy Apple's designs, which he said take up to eight years of design development work to produce.

    "We may seem a little testy when things we have been working on for eight years are copied in six months – but it wasn't inevitable that it was going to work."

    "It's not copying, it's theft. They stole our time, time we could have had with our families. I actually feel quite strongly about it. It's funny – I was talking to somebody and they said do you think when somebody copies what you do it's flattering? No."[/QUOTE]

    Been there. Samsung's solution was: buy our new printer model, which is just different enough that it is software incompatible. To which I said: no way. HP used to have printers that was supported for a decade afterwards. Sammy just wants to sell you another disposable printer.
