Being a decent tech blogger, of course Vlav Savov (The Verge) couldn’t say the obvious, but I can: fuck Lei Jun.
Who would have thought this could happen, it’s a different time alright.
Jack Purcher (Patently Apple) nails it, where was the fuckin’ Glass?
Great find by Joe Mullin (Ars Technica):
The patent lists are strategically significant, because Microsoft has managed to build a huge patent-licensing business by taxing Android phones without revealing what kind of legal leverage they really have over those phones.
It’s not personal, it’s just business?
This should help Apple win the case against Samsung, heck maybe even against Google.
Ben Popper (The Verge):
On the other end of the spectrum, the new $199.95 Powerbeats 2 Wireless are Beats’ first foray into a Bluetooth headphone designed to be worn while working out and so are compact, lightweight, and completely wireless and sweatproof. Wearing them for hours at a time was not a burden, and the loop system keeps them secure in your ears.
Compact, lightweight, and wireless (Bluetooth) connectivity, “coincidentally” Beats release it after acquired by Apple.
Dan Seifert (The Verge) tries to say the obvious as subtly as he can:
This year, Samsung is putting a huge effort into convincing everyone that it cares about design, and the Tab S models carry the same “Modern Flash” design theme as the Galaxy S5. Samsung tells me that its designers were inspired by minimalist architecture when building the tablets and the goal is to attain “ultra sleekness and slimness.” In reality, they just look like giant Galaxy S5s, complete with the same dimpled finish on the back and fingerprint scanners on the front.
He should have added: Samsung only cares about design only after Apple exposed Samsung’s copy-cat strategy.
