Apple Takes a Veiled Jab at Samsung in New Print Ad Promoting Green Energy

Apr 22, 2014 - 1:02 PM - by dgstorm

It's intriguing to see how one small phrase in a document can alter the tone and final perception of the document in profound ways. Apple recently released a print ad meant to showcase their "green energy" and "environmental friendly" policies and business practices; however, because of the main phrase they began the ad with, the media has done nothing but focus on the fact that it takes a veiled jab at Samsung.

As you can see from the pic above, the first line of the ad says, “There are some ideas we want every company to copy.” Obviously this is an indirect attack at Samsung since the two companies have been locked in a legal war regarding ideas and patents that Samsung copied (some would argue allegedly) from Apple. The rest of the ad is innocuous enough, and basically is just Apple sharing how they are committed to improving the environment and they wished other companies would follow their lead. Here's a quote with the rest of the ad,

There’s one area where we actually encourage others to imitate us. Because when everyone makes the environment a priority, we all benefit. We’d be more than happy to see every data centre fueled by 100% renewable energy sources. And we eagerly await the day when every product is made without the harmful toxins we have removed from ours.

Of course we know we can continue to do better. We’ve set some pretty ambitious goals for reducing our impact on climate change, making our products with greener materials and conserving our planet’s limited resources. So the next time we come across a great idea that can help leave the world better than we found it, we look forward to sharing it.
To be honest, we can't blame Apple for using attack ads aimed at Samsung. Samsung did a remarkable job attacking the iPhone with their own attack ads throughout last year. Still, we can't help but wonder if this was a poorly chosen reason/method on Apple's part. Instead of focusing on the merits of their "environmentally friendly" achievements, they have basically turned the attention away from what they have done and end up sounding overly smug about it.

If you have been one of the few users to try out Samsung's SideSync Desktop App, you will know it is handy little Samsung app. Unfortunately, it was previously only available to use with Samsung's ATIV line of Windows laptops and tablets.

Prototype Nano-Tech Charger Can Fully Recharge Your Cell Battery in Under a Minute

Apr 07, 2014 - 3:19 PM - by dgstorm

Although it sounds like something out of Shadowrun novel, there is some new tech on the horizon which could make our worries about smart-device battery drain a thing of the past. An Israeli company named StoreDot just showed off a high-tech new prototype battery charger at Microsoft's Think Next event. This new battery charger utilizes Nanodots technology, which is essentially some of the newest nano-tech available.

Nanodots are bio-organic nanocrystals with superior energy storage capabilities, although commercial applications for them could eventually be seen in data storage, flexible displays, and imaging sensors. In this particular application...

Samsung Breakthrough Could Commercialize Graphene Sooner Than Expected

Apr 04, 2014 - 10:46 AM - by dgstorm

Samsung has been working with the Sungkyunkwan University to develop graphene technology for future flexible devices, and they recently made a breakthrough in the manufacturing process. This breakthrough is likely to bring the super-material to market much sooner than predicted. This new breakthrough is a new manufacturing method, designed to produce large, thin sheets of graphene. While it is true that methods for that already exist, what is unique about this one is that Samsung's process does not reduce the mechanical properties of the nanomaterial, which has been a problem of other manufacturing techniques.

If you haven't heard of graphene, it's a nanomaterial which is likely to completely disrupt and alter the future of the entire electronics industry. Here's a quote which explains why graphene is so revolutionary...

Mar 10, 2014 - 9:56 AM - by dgstorm

Guess what T-Mobile Galaxy S4 owners! Starting today, the Android 4.4.2 KitKat update will roll out to your device! Of course, keep in mind that these OTA updates go out in batches, so if yours doesn't come today, just give it a few days. It's at least starting the process today. Alternatively, you can go the manual update route by using the Samsung Kies desktop app.

Here's a breakdown of relevant info regarding this rollout:

  • 387-megabyte update
  • KitKat (build M919UVUFNB4)
  • Improved stability
  • New camera shortcut on the lock screen
  • Improved on-screen keyboard

To get this update you will need to be on software version M919UVUEMK2, of Android 4.3. You will also need at least a 50% charge on your battery.

International Samsung Galaxy S4 Gets KitKat Update

Mar 05, 2014 - 9:03 AM - by dgstorm

Look what happens... I'm out sick for a day and I come back to a spam-fest of KitKat updates for multiple devices! The international version of the Samsung Galaxy S4 is the next device to report the Android 4.4.2 KitKat update. So far, (as of the original source of this report) the update has only been rolling out to users in Belgium, Greece, Malaysia and Poland. The file size for these folks is between 362 to 424 MB depending on what software they are currently on.

It's possible it is rolling out to other regions as well. Sound off in this thread if you have the update and give us your impressions of it.
