Google doesn’t like what Samsung is doing with Android and is putting them on notice. So much for no being evil.
Is anyone surprised?
Android handset partners rejoice, Google is no longer a handset manufacture. This was their plan from day one, they never wanted to compete with their partners. They effectively paid $4.265 Billion for Moto’s patents, which Google values at $5.5 Billion.
The Mac turns 30 today.
This makes sense, they are already financing your phones. It also provides a good incentive to remain a T-mobile customer.
Google is picking up a great team and some great products. I wonder how Nest customers will feel when Nest starts sharing it’s data with Google? And will the Apple store still be selling the Nest now that it’s a Google Product?
John Legere just might be crazy enough to change AT&T and Verizon.
Love the design, love the size. Give me this with stock Android and I’m sold.
Having played with many friend’s MakerBot Replicator and Replicator 2s, I’ve always wanted one but couldn’t justify spending that much money on a 3d printer. The new Mini is relatively affordable and will most likely be my first 3d printer.
This is making AT&T the gatekeepers of the internet for many and it will most definitely hinder innovation.
I along with my family switched over to T-Mobile in Q4 and I couldn’t be happier. My bill is roughly half of what I use to pay on AT&T and the service has been great thus far. I get great LTE coverage in New York City and Northern New Jersey. Their free international texting and data coverage came in handy when I was in London over the holidays. It’s good to not have to worry about outrageous telco bills when using your mobile devices abroad, even if it’s only on 2G.
Am I the only one that think the new Pebble Steel doesn’t look as nice as the original. It looks unfinished, more of a prototype than a finished product.
I’m also worried at a new trend: I rarely see Google employees wearing theirs anymore. Most say “I just don’t like advertising that I work for Google.” I understand that. Quite a few people assume I work for Google when they see me with mine. I just hope it doesn’t mean that Google’s average employee won’t support it.
Fewer Google employees are wearing them because they don’t see a use for them (yet). I know many people that have paid hard cash for Google Glass and they are in the same camp. They uses it for a couple of weeks because it seems cool and they like the attention, but they get tired of charging and carrying it around only to not find any practical use for it. Right not It’s just a $1500 paperweight for most.
