  • Another F for Alphabet: after abandoning Android tablets last year, Google retreats from C...

    Google is a surveillance company... I mean advertising company. The goal in Mountain View is not hardware or software, it is data collection.

  • MWC Barcelona 2019 taunts Apple's absence in 5G and foldable screens

    Yeah the past 15 years taught me to ignore the noise.

    iPhone not supporting a standard that no carrier yet supports?!?!!

    DOOMED.

    Reminds me of when 4G was the latest craze and carriers were passing off unfinished crap as "4G".
    It is pretty much a throw everything against the wall approach so they can say, ‘we did it first’. 

    I am fine with companies pushing new things but when a main selling feature is something that cannot be used or even readily available for 2years?
    Whether it matters depends on how long you plan to keep your 2019 iPhone.

    BTW, where's the examples of this "taunting"? Is there any from the MWC folks? I didn't see those mentioned in the article. 
    Putting a 5G modem in a 2019 phone is about the spec sheet. It is a marketing/selling differentiator even if it is unusable.

    Are they doing fit bit ripoffs now?

    The AirPod ripoffs were always going to happen. 

    But...But But Apple isn't innovating!!!
    Are they actually AirPod ripoffs or the 2nd iterative advance of the Gear IconX they introduced Jul 2016?  Also isn't the Galaxy Fit just the most up to date version of the Gear Fit they brought out in Apr 2014?
    Umm, they are complete ripoffs. 

    They dont have single original design thought from TVs to refrigerators. Their successes are directly from ripping off designs from other manufacturers.

    What does that have to do with the fit bit and airpods?  Neither the buds nor the fitness band ripoff Apple or Fitbit. 
    The Galaxy Fit looks just a little bit like a fitbit... 


    Or, and bear with me here, does the Galaxy Fit look suspiciously like the Gear Fit from 2014?  Now I'm no Inspector Clouseau, but if I was to judge I'd say Sammy iterated their own product.  Wouldn't you?   Btw, the Fitbit Charge 2 you have pictured?  It came out 2 years after the Gear Fit,  So unless Samsung copied time travel from someone...

    Gear Fit from 2014,
    Do we ignore the 2013 Fitbit Force?  In the end, Fibit sold some product and the design is far more recognized as a Fitbit. As for the ear buds, no one bought them. Being first doesnt really matter if no one buys them. Also, they are ugly.

  • The Galaxy Fold is Samsung's $1980 7.3-inch folding smartphone

    I wanted to like this device but when it is folded together it is one of the ugliest pieces of tech I have ever seen. I feel like I have gone back in time to fold out keyboards.  Is it even possible to put a case on this thing? I dont even care about the price. It is just not a nice looking device. Also, Android will never be optimized for this device.
