Nicolas Nguyen onto iPhone
Clipped Sep 15
Don't think Samsung gets it. It's not about Giga Hertz. It's about what you could do. Apple is marketing to the regular users like you and me. Samsung is obviously marketing to the geeky group.
I don't think they've kissed and made up yet. I don't even think they're talking. When one party embarrasses another so badly -- and in public -- you don't expect the hurt one to just take it, do you? And so Samsung is greeting the arrival of the iPhone 5 with an ad that will run tomorrow in certain national and local newspapers (how modern). It is not a flattering ad. It suggests that the iPhone 5 isn't even good enough to be, well, a copy of the Galaxy S3.
What gets me is the standby time.
Those specs come out to faster loading times and such, for me is that the IPhone is almost exactly the same as the last 2, and the upgrades the made to the iPhone have been on android for years.

The new Iphone is a total brick from the last upgrade. pixie dust here and there, thats it. Why do i need turn by turn nav, I already have google maps. why do i need 3d world map view, I already have Google earth. why do i need an extra slot on a larger screen? pointless. Retina display? I already see my current screen fine.
