Hi. I’m John and I’m an addict. No, seriously. I have an addiction to buying new devices and this one has me jonesing. I had the G3 and LOVED it. I changed to the Nexus 6 and now to the S6 Edge, purely for the camera. They say the G4 can best the S6 camera and that has me highly interested.
I don’t know if I’ll get this one just yet. Well, I know I won’t but in a couple months…maybe. 🙂
I love my GTVs but have been waiting on it to mature. This update gets it about 85% to where I want it to be and I can’t wait to upgrade my Revue units. It is by far more useful than my Apple TV (I loathe changing TV inputs) already and this just takes it to another level.
With the acquisition, Nuance says it aims to create natural language interfaces for a variety of devices, including tablets, cars, televisions, navigation devices, music players, and PCs — and since Siri already uses Nuance’s technology, the company stands to make money nearly everywhere voice recognition is used.
The future is bright for voice recognition. I’m looking forward to seeing what comes of this acquisition as Vlingo is one of my favorite apps on Android.
Of course, Acer also makes 42 models of netbooks split across three families, a pair of Chromebooks, and countless tablets, desktops, monitors, projectors, smartphones, and more. So, while two-thirds sounds like a dramatic swing of the axe, Acer will still offer plenty of choice as the company restructures itself around profits and away from the “cheap” grab for marketshare that had been its approach under Acer’s former CEO Gianfranco Lanci.
Great move. I’d like to see more companies do this [hello Samsung].
They absolutely have to be laughing at Samsung’s marketing arm and their decision to give a phone 7 words within the name. I just wonder how hard the execs laughed when they heard the name. The specs probably made them take pause but the name is for the birds! At some point, manufacturers will learn simplicity in naming helps consumer purchase decisions.
Beyond such a terrible name for the S II, it is a Sprint only name! AT&T is just the Galaxy S II. I think they shouldn’t change the device per carrier. There should be one cohesive name for every carrier [ ex – iPhone, regardless of AT&T or Verizon] and the same specs per carrier. Slight changes to hardware [antenna, etc] are expected but device size, etc should not change.
Yeah, weird title but you’ll see what I mean. It is really simple:
Apple did not create the Smart Cover concept. InCase did.
What? My thoughts exactly when I read about this a few months ago. It seems every blog [tech writer] has deemed it a true innovation by Apple but they merely copied and improved, as they are doing more and more now-a-days.
In the 90’s when the Dallas Cowboys were routing the Buffalo Bills, I was solo eating a plate of BBQ [namely sausage w/ pickles] and cheering for the Bills. Being from TX the obvious position would have been to cheer for Dallas but the “underdog” was Dallas and that’s who I wanted to see win. If I were a lawyer, I’d do all sorts of pro bono work the unfortunate. As a web dev I do a lot of stuff for free or, at a minimum, shave prices.
My point? I like the lil’ people to get their due and to see them win, at times. InCase is the underdog and they aren’t getting a lick of credit for it while Apple is sitting on high looking like the smartest company ever.
Sincerest apologies to those who caught the first rev of this post via RSS, etc. I was testing out the WordPress formats for this theme and published this too early by clicking the wrong button. I won’t detail which changes were made since the original accidental publish but this is the final state of the post. Thx for your understanding.
