Interesting! What completely new product categories has Samsung innovated in? Bigger phones?

What amazing application software has Samsung written? Productivity Apps? Operating Systems?

Revolutionizing everything they touched for like a decade isn't enough? They haven't earned a breather?

One problem with taking a breather whilst on top of the game is that someone else can easily Knock you off your perch. Time and technology do not stand still...

Right, and as I asked what has Samsung innovated on in the meantime besides bigger screens? I'm not being blase here, I'm a technophile, I'd genuinely like to know so I can get on board!


Apple spent nine months in complete silence — from the release of the iPad Mini through last week. The only thing they announced in that interim was the ouster of Scott Forstall and corresponding reshuffling of executive responsibility. No new products, no new designs. And the business and tech media lost their shit over this, declaring an end to Apple’s ability to innovate. Apple’s “This Is Our Signature” mantra is in defiance of this superficial demand for an endless stream of new new new. Apple is saying they’re above the churn of the news cycle, and if you don’t understand that yet, they don’t care. You’ll either get it through your head eventually, or you will never understand Apple.
