Honestly, I can’t believe this report. This is one of those moments where, if this is true, a good chunk of people reading this are going to feel like they are completely out of touch with the younger generation. BGR is reporting that, according to a new survey, Apple is no longer cool. In fact, it’s too ‘cool’ to really be cool. The report was done by a marketing group that specializes in youth marketing. They claim that teens are more interested in the Surface tablet and Samsung’s line of Galaxy phones instead of iPads and iPhones.
The Galaxy phones I can kind of see. Samsung is pushing the envelope more than Apple is in regards to phone technology. And if the app ecosystem for Android continues to grow the way it is, Apple might have some stiff competition. But this notion that teens want the surface tablet over the iPad is insane. Seriously, what’re you gonna do with the Surface? Download all 6 apps that are available and play with the kickstand?
Sooooooo Samsung introduced a new fridge at CES. A fridge running Android OS on a touchscreen. Yup….now even your fridge has a tablet in it. Right now, it doesn’t have full access to the Play store, but it has some apps built in already. It’s got some video and photo apps, but the coolest feature it’s got is Evernote integration. Personally, I’ve a fan of Google Drive, but the fact that you can quickly write a note on what you need at the store and have it sync to your Evernote account is pretty cool. The downside….the price tag comes in at a nice $4000. If it where up to me, I think I’d rather buy a regular fridge and throw an iPad in my kitchen, like this guy did.
Ok so don’t judge me, but I’m looking at buying a keyboard to use with my iPad. I’m starting to use it to type a lot more and the onscreen keyboard isn’t cutting it. I know I don’t want a big huge case/keyboard combo thing….so I can’t decide what to get. Do you guys have any suggestions or use any yourself? Let me know in the comments below.
So by now, I’m sure you all have heard about Oprah’s massive screw up in trying to promote the Microsoft Surface tablet. And it looks like everyone this holiday season followed suit, and avoided the Surface like it was the bubonic plague…if we lived in Europe….in the 1300′s. Anyway. It’s just a matter of time before this thing is in a grave next to it’d older brother, the Zune. Check out what twitter user A.X. Ian put together after the break. Continue reading
Yesterday I received a nexus 7 from a ever so great girlfriend. I had been hinting about wanting one, but did not expect one. After being able to play with it for 36 hours … This thing is awesome and I would recommend it for anyone that is tired of Apple products.
Yahoo- A BestBuy customer reported that they ordered 1 iPad, but opened the box to reveal that a total of 5 were in the box. So like any moron, the customer calls up BestBuy to explain that they ordered 1 iPad, not 5. BestBuy decided that it is the holiday season, and told the customer that the iPads should be given “to people in need”.
Not understanding between right and wrong has nothing to do with being free
