    I think The next step (no pun intended) is to hire somebody who looks like Jonathan Ive to talk about the products. Maybe this guy?

    The sad part? They actually DID.

    Johnny Eve Samesung Gold


    Is it me or does it sound like the Samesung actor is faking his accent?

    Jony Ive Apple Watch Gold


    Samesung took the original ads down after articles noticed. Hmmm... I wonder why?

    Well, a true Brit would pronounce the word as 'A-lu-mi-ni-um' with the extra 'i'. 
    The actor instead pronounced it, the North American way, without the 'Aluminum'

    Didn't fandroids/windows users/iHaters say the cylindrical design was ugly? Let's see what excuses they make for this piece of sh*t.



    wait, IS THAT A FU**ING HOME BUTTON?!?!?!

    A blue siren light and chimney stack? 

    Always admire a company that can laugh at itself.

    A company so evil it cannot be killed by conventional means.
    So Kim Jong Un will have to nuke ‘em, huh.

    Looks like a gas stove blue to me. In any case the Apple design is impressively better, if nothing else because it is cleaner.

    The HP looks a lot nicer than the Samsung. And hopefully with the upcoming rMBP redesign they'll finally upgrade the poor neglected MacPro...or just discontinue it all together I suppose.

    Why copy a heavily outdated, huge form factor failure like the Mac Pro?
    (at least the Samsung gets you more for your money).

    Because they don't have a creative/innovative bone in their corporate body. They can riff on others' tracks but not lay down their own beat.

    "Storage includes a 256GB SSD with up to 2TB of hard drive storage"

    Hard drive storage?

    That's a good way to slow down what could have been a fast computer.
    The OS on an SSD is what makes a computer fast.   

    Mass storage on a spinning hard drive will have a negligible effect on how "fast" your computer is.

    I'm running this same setup in my PC:  an SSD for the OS while all my files are stored on (multiple) hard drives.  No problems.

    Hell... some people store all their personal files on a NAS... and those aren't very fast either.  But it doesn't have to be.  Opening a Word doc or JPG from a hard drive won't be slow.

    I'm pretty sure the fandroids will also think this is ugly. The HP one is nice, the mac and samsung ones are dogs

    I'm sure that cylinders of its size detonate with more force than a phablet-shaped device, such as the galaxy note 7.

    The HP looks like a neglected hot tub or pool filter.

    I have to say, it does look a lot less like an elephant suppository.  Can we agree on that?
