Let’s break down the comparisons:
I didn’t know Windows Phone lets apps customize the homescreen, that’s a pleasant surprise.
When you feel your Note 2 is too small and your Note 8 is too large, you reach for your Galaxy Mega. That .3 inches makes a huge difference!?!
Finally, a decent 4’ Android phone and it’s stock Android too!
If I am not mistaken, Mozilla is not offering browser choice on their upcoming Firefox OS either.
An issue from the day the phone was released, still no fix; that’s innovation?!?
Apple’s iPhone is certainly not experiencing slowing demand in the US.
Coming to the Apple TV next, maybe?
Microsoft brings Wordament cross platform, it’s the first iOS game to have Xbox Live achievements.
Evan Wiener on Apple no longer using Google Maps for it’s Maps app:
The media’s take on the whole maps war makes Apple out to be the asshole that prioritized business need over what was best for the user, but what if Google’s not that easily the white knight?
What if Google was strong-arming Apple? Google needs to collect user location data to serve up location-based ads, so what if Apple was protecting myself and all the other iOS users by defaulting to not share user data with Google, who has a profit motive to place their ads in front of me? I could see Google saying that’s a deal breaker for them. Do not track defaults are a huge debate these days.
Apple has been a proponent for user privacy. The biggest appeal of buying a Mac to me was their quality and Apple’s prevention of junkware PC pollution.
I buy it! At the end, most of us got what we wanted. Apple got an app that does not depend on a competitor and is free of crapware. Consumers that rather use Google Maps got it as a sand alone app. Google gets to track those users that don’t mind it, but they miss out on being the default backend for millions of iOS users.
A $500 camera that takes pictures like a $200 entry point and shoot. I still think this is a good idea on Samsung’s part, the execution is just not there yet.
The Xiaomi Box, an Apple TV clone, can do Apple’s AirPlay. Does Apple allow this or is this a hack?
It’s an iPad in a smaller form factor with access to the same massive ecosystem.
