WTF of the week: Apple could be ‘obsolete’ in 2-3 years

WTF of the week: Apple could be ‘obsolete’ in 2-3 years

At some point in the future, Apple will no longer be the consumer technology giant it is today. It will become obsolete. Its products will no longer be trendy. Other companies will innovate and drive Apple out of markets it had once dominated. It’s inevitable. It might happen in 10 years or it might happen in 100 years, but it will happen. One of the few things we can safely assume, however is that it will not happen in the next 2-3 years — unless you’re Pedro de Noronha, managing partner at Noster Capital. More →

iPhone 6 vs Metal Samsung Galaxy

Here’s yet another way the iPhone 6 is messing with Samsung

Here’s yet another way the iPhone 6 is messing with Samsung

Samsung has already started making fun in a TV commercial of the unreleased iPhone 6, telling potential buyers that its Android handsets had bigger displays for quite a while in an obvious attempt to kill the iPhone 6 buzz and divert attention to its own 2014 flagship handset. But the company appears to actually have a real iPhone 6-related problem, Digitimes reports, which may affect its own smartphone launch plans. Apple’s massive metal chassis orders with suppliers are apparently preventing Samsung from placing its own metal chassis orders for a future iPhone 6 killer that would ditch plastic in favor of metal.

LG G3 review: Android has a new king

LG G3 review: Android has a new king

By on July 24, 2014 at 11:00 AM.

As I walked through Times Square on my way to the office one day last week, something odd caught my eye that made me do a double take. A sizable line had formed outside of the AT&T store as it prepared to open. I have seen people line up outside of that store before, of course, but typically only when a fresh batch of recently launched iPhones is waiting on the other side of the doors.

This time, however, people weren’t lining up to buy a new iPhone. They were lining up for the just-released LG G3.

And truth be told, this is a phone worth lining up for. More →

Here’s why you won’t be able to buy a 5.5-inch iPhone 6 in September

Many iPhone 6 reports have claimed the bigger 5.5-inch iPhone 6 model is delayed, as Apple has been experiencing various production issues related to battery size, new display with in-cell touch sensors, or the sapphire front panel. But according to a new report, it appears that’s not why Apple may want to delay the phablet. Digitimes has learned from sources familiar with the matter that yield rates have not been an issue for the 5.5-inch iPhone 6, and the company instead has a completely different reason to hold the handset back.
