    All we *think* we know about Apple and OLEDs, is that they might be moving to them in 2017. Why people think there will be a wrap around screen, I don't understand. These are just mock-ups from people who know nothing about what Apple is planning.

    So, will we see OLEDs in 2017? Possibly. Will we see a wrap around screen, um, well, maybe, but why?
    Exactly, we have heard "The next iPhone will have OLED display" for years on end. It will happen if and when OLED's are actually better than the LCD's (unlike samsung apple has no specific vested interest in OLED's leaving them free to choose the best display for the product at the time) As for the curved screen, a feature (that you can easily bend OLED's) in search of a need. Curving screens make the phone less useful and more prone to damage. Again Samsung is hamstrung by the fact that they are trying to promote their OLED OEM business (where they make considerably more $$) rather than simply making the best phone possible (which is what Apple has the ability to do)
    I guess you haven't been paying attention. The last several Galaxy S models received the highest rated display marks for any phone. Just do a search. Besides that, have you ever seen the blacks on an OLED device, especially in dimly lit rooms, it's awesome. OLED OLED OLED!!!!!! Can't come soon enough.
  • Hillary Clinton's tech platform backs Apple positions on encryption, privacy, innovation, patents,

    I don't believe anything Clinton says, but Trump would straight up dangerous for the world and the US. He's incapable of running a Twitter account. And I don't believe anything he says. He's a knee-jerk, reactionary juvenile. He's at best racist and at worst uses the racism of others through innuendo and plain language to gain power. He's not just un-American, he's a sociopath and a downright horrid human being.
    But the strange thing is he seems to be on the right side of things unlike Obama and Clinton, so seem completely clueless as to the reality of the world.

  • On its 9th birthday, Apple's iPhone finds itself at a crossroads

    Make a serious play in the smaller form factor market.

    SE was a good start but it should have it's own design language going forward.
  • Apple refuses to back GOP convention because of Trump politics

    Personally, I love the fact that so many Trump trolls use products made by such a left leaning Northern California company.
    (and then they call Apple "hypocritical") LOL
    You mean a left leaning company that sells Elitist products?

    Or a company built by a man who had liberal social views and conservative business views... like a certain someone who is running with orange hair.

  • Apple refuses to back GOP convention because of Trump politics

    This is a major FAIL on Apple's part.  Never take sides in Politics, you never know who'll be in power.

    They should know by now, politics is about all "What Have You Done For Me Lately?".
