Samsung’s iPhone 6 nightmare is unfolding before its eyes

Even though it’s still selling a massive number of smartphones each quarter, Samsung’s sales and revenues have been suffering lately as the company faces increased competition in emerging markets. Another big factor has been the battle with Apple’s 2014 iPhones, which have both been selling tremendously well since their launch.

In fact, Apple’s iPhone 6 models may have helped the company sell well over 70 million iPhones in the Christmas quarter, which may be enough to threaten Samsung’s smartphone sales dominance. More →

12-inch MacBook Air vs. iPad Air Plus

Help! I already can’t decide between the 12-inch MacBook Air and 12-inch iPad

Help! I already can’t decide between the 12-inch MacBook Air and 12-inch iPad

By on January 23, 2015 at 12:50 PM.

Some hardcore Apple fans are surely excited about some of the rumored products that are supposed to launch later this year, including the 12-inch Retina MacBook Air and the 12-inch iPad Pro or iPad Air Plus the company is reportedly working on. Despite what some have secretly been hoping for — that Apple is making a Surface-like device that’ll bring you the best of two worlds, an iOS tablet and an OS X laptop in the same ultra-portable box — it appears these two devices are separate products targeting different buyers.

Yet at the same time, the 12-inch MacBook Air and the 12-inch iPad will somehow compete against each other later this year. And buyers, myself included, might have a tough time deciding between these two particular computers.

The craziest fact about the Apple Watch: It will be more powerful than the first iPad

The Apple Watch will not have incredible battery life, a 9to5Mac report on Thursday revealed. Apple wasn’t even able to meet its own battery targets for its first smartwatch, which is why the company delayed the launch of the Apple Watch from late 2014 to early 2015. But one detail from the report that was overlooked is that the tiny gadget will apparently be more powerful than the iPad. More →

Samsung’s Apple Watch killer will apparently be insanely complex to maneuver

You’d think that by now, Samsung has had time to decide on various smartwatch-related matters including design, software features and user interface. The company has already released a variety of such devices, running all sorts of operating systems and offering different takes on this category. But basically, Samsung has been taking shots in the dark with its smartwatches, hoping something will stick with consumers before Apple launches its highly anticipated Apple Watch.

That hasn’t happened though, and the company is reportedly working on a brand new smartwatch, a Moto 360-like round gadget that’ll feature some highly complex interaction methods that have not been seen on any of Samsung’s watches so far. More →
