That’s nothing to celebrate or have some bizarre arbitrary pride.
What I find weird is
- I was not aware there was such a thing as people actually getting consciously* excluded cause they have a green bubble. What sort of a tool would you be to do that to someone?
- why Samsung thought this is good marketing.it is more of an own goal. It emphasises the superior capabilities of a competitor product.
I use the Apple Pencil a bit on the iPad Pro. I am using it now, but generally I believe it is more suited to special applications.Two observations:
I would use a a lot less on an iPhone.
The Apple Pencil is not integrated enough to justify for most people. The most basic example is there is no systemwide support to use the pencil to enter text rather than a keyboard.

No matter what your political stripes, this is an absolute good. But corporate behavior will only change when internal incentives change. If salary increases and bonuses continue to be tied to stock performance this statement means nothing. Follow through is everything.
What it really is is a barrier to entry to new competitors. Established wealthy corporations can do this. Newer ons get strangled by the associated frameworks and reporting processes set up to the advantage of the established corporations with large corporate and PR departments. At the very least, if a young start up didn’t report how it complies, say only because it can’t employ an army of compliance officers, the “curated” media (by the established corporate giants) will eat them alive.
