    Nothing beats the story about the Dell executive who after a string of dud presentations because of equipment failures said this won’t happen with me, and pulled out a Mac notebook.

    S4 faulty batteries, if the serial on the battery is within this range BD1D401XX ~ BD1D529XX return to Samsung before it swells up and explodes, they will replace it.

     

    My 5S is fault free, like my 5, 4 and 3G.

    What a pathetic reply, and the amount of butthurt in this thread from certain characters is quite telling.

    It matters not what people say or what they claim, what matters is what they do, and this CEO tweeting about his love for Samsung from his iPhone is damn telling!
    Really? What precisely does it tell you that isn't massively coloured by your own bias?

    It tells me that at the precise moment he wanted to post a tweet, this dude used an iPhone. Nothing much more than that. Could be that Twitter for iPhone is his favourite client on any device, could just be that the iPhone is what he was holding in that moment, could be a number of other reasons.

    And yes, it's a bit funny that he was tweeting about a rival product, but it's tweet-worthy LOLs, not news-worthy expose.

    There is no evidence here of any paid shilling.

    Make sure you are logged in, go to one of his posts, click on the blue triangle to the right of his name and click on Block Member. The only downside as mentioned by others is that it doesn't stop you seeing his posts if other people quote them in their replies.

    Got a link to that handy?

    Lastly, isn't there a Twitter available for Android he could (should) have used? Duh?

    Yeah, there is, but it's bear to use. Plus his Note3 was being recharged after the batteries died after three hours away from a charger.

    Thanks, ScottWilson just joined a far less happy world than the one I'm in... *click* poof!

    He blew it,  Samsung should ask for money back !  :no:

    I think the real question is why, if he has pages of apps on his iPhone, is there an entire row of unused app slots on his home screen? That is PRIME real estate. Come on!

    maybe his note 3 lagged so much he couldn't go to twitter on it.
    simple enough

    Actually, isn't the Note praised by the awesome battery life? That's the advantage of a big phone. The screen loves more juice, Android loves juice, the snapdragon drinks like an horse, but there's plenty of room for a 3500 battery.

    I see two possibilities here.

    One: technologically illiterate people use iPhone. No, really; if you are tweeting even occasionally, you'd know if your app has that kind of signature. Unless you never read what you tweet about, in which case:

    Two: he does not tweet himself, too busy for that... So he has PA to tweet for him. Which makes his PA technologically illiterate, and him lazy and potentially illiterate.

    What does it say about ones "technological literacy" if they don't know Twitter removed that info from their web interface over a year ago?

    Why would a person read their own tweets?  Ok he may be a CEO, but that doesn't mean he has to be a self-regarding narcissist.

    What's the point of the rest of us blocking goobers if you're going to quote them and complain??


     

    If you just REPORT THE POSTS, the guy’ll be banned and his crap wiped.

     

     

    I’ve never understood “blocking” troll accounts. They’re not allowed to be here at all; HELP GET RID OF THEM!

    Step 1: Click that little flag thing at the bottom left of his post… :p

     

    Seriously, the block list is in the username dropdown in the sidebar of each post. At the bottom, “Block Member”.

     

    But DO report posts; don’t just block.

    The point of a "phablet" is that it delivers the value of a phone and a tablet together. 

    If you sell a refrigerator-toaster, and yet you actually make your toast with a dedicated toaster, it indicates that your refrigerator-toaster isn't a suitable replacement for a standard sized toaster.

    I’m sorry I have to explain basic logic to you.

    It would be even worse if your refrigerator-toaster had a special toaster-assistatance robotic arm that was supposed to help you make toast using your refrigerator-toaster by allowing you to automate the refrigerator-toaster in such a way that the refrigerator-toaster combination became less clumsy to manage. And yet you still used a standalone toaster to make your toast. 

    And when you made an advertisement about how delicious your toast from your refrigerator-toaster was, and how difficult it was to live without a refrigerator-toaster, and then it was pointed out that the toast marks on the toast you were touting made it clear you made the toast on a standalone toaster and not by your refrigerator-toaster, and your reply was to show that your kitchen was indeed equipped with a refrigerator-toaster along with a refrigerator and a toaster, and the refrigerator-toaster robotic arm...

    well, I guess I can’t continue to point out why you are so ridiculous in insisting that there’s nothing wrong with saying you can’t live without refrigerator-toasters even when you clearly appear to prefer toast not made by refrigerator-toasters.

    and these words are the sound of a RPG hitting the target!

    I want this refrigerator-toaster with the robotic arm!  Door size is very important to me though....  It must have a bigger door then last years model.  Door size can become a primary selling point and after a few years the door height could be as nearing the ceiling.  Also compressor horsepower should be a notable spec, totally ignoring how well it kept food cold or how much power it used.

    What mistake?  It's so common and natural for people to have multiple devices.  No device is best for everything.  Note 3 is on my wish list as well, just can't afford it yet...

    I need a quad or even an octo compressor, I don't know how people can manage with tiny doors, less than 7 feet.

     

    The lights dimming in my house whenever it powers on is a small price to pay.

    Android 4.3 is on MY wish list for my Galaxy S4, update just hasn't been released yet.

     

    I wonder what will come first?

     

    Release of 4.4 or update to 4.3 for my late model high end phone?

     

    Fragmentation, it's a bitch.

     

    I updated my iPhone 4 to iOS 7 on the day of release.
