Samsung Vs Apple

Samsung will pay you $200 to dump your iPhone

Samsung will pay you $200 to dump your iPhone

By on August 28, 2015 at 11:35 AM.

For a period of time, Android seemed like an unstoppable juggernaut. The mobile platform’s global market share skyrocketed each quarter at breakneck speeds, leaving rival platforms in the dust behind it.

Then, in 2014, Apple finally released iPhones with bigger displays to combat the supersized screens Android users had been enjoying for years. As a result, Apple CEO Tim Cook said that Android users were switching to the iPhone faster than ever, and the company’s holiday quarter was the most profitable quarter any company has even reported.

Now, Samsung is starting to fight back. More →

This infuriating story shows how Amazon treats some employees like complete garbage

This infuriating story shows how Amazon treats some employees like complete garbage

Major tech companies are ruthlessly competitive pressure cookers where employees are expected to log in much more than 40 hours a week. That said, there are still standards of decency to which most of them adhere, and that’s why it’s been so disturbing to see evidence over the last couple of weeks that Amazon is a needlessly cruel working environment that goes well beyond any horror stories we’ve ever heard from former Apple, Google or Microsoft employees.

iPhone 6s Specs

Another peek inside the iPhone 6s… and the iPhone 7s?

Another peek inside the iPhone 6s… and the iPhone 7s?

If an earlier report is correct — and based on the source’s track record, it almost certainly is — Apple’s next-generation iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus are less than a month away from being unveiled. Apple may have as many as eight new products to show off on stage during its next press conference in early September, but the stars of the show will be the company’s new iPhones, without question.

A steady flow of leaks has painted a fairly clear picture of Apple’s next-generation iPhone lineup, with the most recent report having been a potential bombshell: supposed benchmark test results for the iPhone 6s show huge performance improvements compared to last year’s model.

Now, we have yet another potential leak to toss into the mix. More →

Welcome to the beginning of the end for pay TV bundles

Welcome to the beginning of the end for pay TV bundles

By on August 18, 2015 at 8:30 AM.

It’s the end of the world as we know it, and pay TV companies do not feel fine. In fact, they are hurting quite badly, and things are only going to get worse. Perhaps it’s karmic retribution for years of anti-consumer policies. Or perhaps these behemoths just thought that their lobbying dollars could shield them from reality forever.

Whatever the case, the bottom line is clear and simple: U.S. media giants are in trouble, and we won’t see many tears shed if they topple. More →

Inside Amazon: Do employees actually hate it?

Is Amazon really a totally miserable place to work or has The New York Times just run a hit piece on America’s most beloved online retailer because it’s jealous of Jeff Bezos’s success? If ratings on Glassdoor.com are any indication, it seems that many people really do enjoy working at Amazon, although it’s a comparatively miserable experience when it’s pitted against other major tech firms, including Apple, Google, Facebook and Microsoft.

Wait… Google just changed its name to Alphabet?

Google does some… strange things. However, the company’s announcement on Monday that it will essentially be renaming itself “Alphabet” might be the weirdest one yet. There will still be a Google, of course, it’s just that Google will be only one company under the main Alphabet umbrella. More →

One anecdote shows how working for Steve Jobs could be an absolute nightmare

Per The Guardian, HTC last quarter suffered a net loss of Tw$8 billion (USD$253), the company’s biggest net loss ever. The company’s smartphone business is getting hammered by low-cost competitors such as Xiaomi and now it’s apparently pinning its hopes for a turnaround on its HTC Vive virtual reality headset.
